Welcome to F2!
On this page you will be able to find out what really happens in the Foundation 2 classroom and solve the riddle of ‘What did you do today?’ – the usual answer being ‘nothing’ or ‘just played’!
Our role in the Foundation Stage is to provide children with the means to experience the world for themselves alongside more academic approaches. We strive to give children the means to develop their own ideas and theories so that they can make sense of the world, and to give them opportunities to develop and test these theories with their peers. Through planned play opportunities we give the children the tools to take ‘safe risks’ to both learn and test their boundaries. We make time for children to be active and to be quiet; to explore and to learn; to be indoors and outside; to be sociable or just to be themselves, whoever they are.
We are glad you can join us on our journey and hope you enjoy the glimpse into the exciting, funny and magical moments of a very special time in your child’s school life.
The F2 Team.

The children were very excited about their special visitor last week, Eddie the Lollipop Man. As part of our People Who Help Us topic, Eddie came
in to talk about his job and how he keeps us and himself safe. The children had a chance to ask lots of questions and thank Eddie for his hard
