Welcome to Foundation 2.
Our F2 staff are:

Our PE session is on a WEDNESDAY morning. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school (white t-shirt, black or blue PE shorts/joggers and black pumps) and all items are labelled with their name. PE kits are kept in school and will be sent home each holiday for a wash!
Homework is set each term and can be accessed on the schools website, under the page 'Curriculum' then 'Year Group Homework'. Please try to complete at least one piece/ task of homework per week.
Some F2 activities are held in the main school building, adjacent to the annexe. These activities normally take place on a Wednesday morning (PE) and Wednesday afternoon (Performing Arts with Mr Glen). There may also be other activities including school assemblies and performances. On these occasions, the children will walk to and from each building in classes, supervised by the teacher/teaching assistants.
Your child's reading pack will come home on a Friday. This will include a reading record, a stage reading book and a 'share book' which your child will have chosen from our class libary to share with you at home. Please return this on a Monday.
Your child has their own login to Bug Club (www.activelearnprimary.co.uk). This includes reading books which are updated regularly and includes lots of fun games for your child to access too.
