Lydgate Infant | Welcome
Aiming High and Having Fun!



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.

    Celebrating Learning

    We thought you would like to see some of the fantastic work that the children are producing in their Learning Logs.  Each time we start a new topic, we try and collect all the books in so we can add a new activity sheet.  This time we have been learning about the Arctic and have been really pleased with the effort some of the children have put in, showing how excited they are about their learning.  As well as geography work, children have produced work based on numeracy and literacy. 

    Just a reminder that work in the book doesn't have to be complicated and we only use one or two pages at a time so it doesn't have to be time consuming.  The only thing we ask is that the children take pride in their work. We are constantly amazed by the great ideas and fabulous work we get to share, we hope you enjoy it too.

    I'm Stickman, that's me.

    This week the F2 classes have been reading Stickman by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.  They have been doing lots of activities around the book and have enjoyed retelling the story.  Some of the classes went to the wildlife garden to find their own stick people and see what adventures they had.

    Off to the Woods

    After all the hard work  the children put into the Christmas performances, they had a chance to have fun at Ecclesall Woods on a Festive Fun Day,  The children had a chance to explore the woods, play games, build hedgehog houses, make a decoration and a bird feeder and to experience a camp fire.  It was a busy day and there were lots of sleepy children on the coach back to school.

    Thinking Big

    Despite Friday being Pyjama Day for Children in Need, the children were feeling anything but lazy.  In the afternoon, some of Class 2 set themselves a challenge to get from one side of the playground to the other without touching the floor.  The children planned together working as a team to achieve their  goal. Part of the importance of outdoor learning is the chance for children to work on a large scale, developing a range of skills.  The children were so proud of themselves, satisified with a job well done.
