F2 Miss Silverwood/Miss Lumb

Welcome to Foundation 2

The staff working in the classroom are Miss Silverwood and Miss Lumb (Class teachers), Miss Walker (trainee teacher), Miss Fisher (LSA), Mrs Smart (LSA, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons), Miss Leadbeater and Miss Aspinall, (apprentices). The children have been placed into two register groups; Miss Silverwood's Superstars and Miss Lumb's Lucky learners. These register groups will be used for group work and when we have to report to parents at parents' evenings, end of year reports and completing children's learning journeys. Please take a look at which group your child is in. The information will be displayed on the Foundation 2 notice board in the cloakroom.

 

In Foundation 2, the children will take part in daily literacy, maths and phonics sessions. During the  phonics sessions, children will learn the sounds and names of letters in the alphabet. Then, the children will learn how to read and write simple words. We would appreciate any support you could give to your child regarding the learning of these letters.

 

Autumn 1

As the children settle into their new class, our topic to begin with this half term is 'All about me'. During this half term, we will be finding out lots of information about your child including their likes and dislikes as this will help to inform our planning linked to the children's interest.

 

Class Targets for this half term;

  • Our class target is to look after the classroom environment and become independent learners.
  • At home we would like your child to practise; writing their first and surname, to begin to form  numbers and letters correctly and to also to say number names in order as well as  recognising numbers in the local environment.
