This year is a very exciting and busy year for the children in Foundation 2.
Over the year we cover the following topics:
We also have lots of exciting and fun filled trips and event days throughout Foundation 2.
Reading is something we love to do and we really hope you can share this experience with your child. We ask you to listen to your child read daily and write a note in their diary to let the teacher know how they got on. When reading with your child at home, you will have a range of books to chose from. Each child will take home a decodable phonics book, a guided reading book and a reading for pleasure book every week. At Parkgate, gaining enjoyment from reading is really important to us, therefore each week the children choose a book from the reading area that particularly interests them.
As a school, we use the Letters and Sounds scheme to teach reading and phonics. Letters and Sounds provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching phonics. In using this approach, our aim is to promote fluency in speaking, reading and writing.
In Foundation 2, P.E is delivered every Wednesday for F2ES and Thursday for F2ML. It is very important that each child brings their own named P.E kit, to be kept in school, each half term.
The Foundation 2 team are always available and happy to discuss any queries you may have.
