Foundation 2

Welcome to the Summer term in Foundation 2.  


We are very proud of the children for lining up in the KS1 playground at the start of the day.  They have adapted to this change very well. Thank you for your support with this.


This term we will be learning all about different habitats and minibeasts. 


We have planned two local walks to the Bluebell woods and The Vale, along with a trip, in June, to Hardwick Hall. 

All our outings will support our topics and enhance the children's learning about the areas which surround where they live. 


Key dates and information for this half term are;

  • PE is on Wednesdays (Summer 1) and Fridays (Summer 2).
  • Forest School is on Monday.

Please ensure children have the correct clothing and footwear for both activities.




                                 Summer 2 GLOW day

F2 have had a fun day in the sunshine learning about plastic pollution and how we can re-use our waste.

We have been making skittles from plastic bottles and sand, Ecobricks from plastic bottles and non biodegradable plastic waste, hedgehog planters and snail bottle top pictures.

Here are a few photographs from our day.


Our walk to Bluebell Woods

This morning we had a walk to the beautiful Bluebell woods, near Park Hall vets, in Mansfield Woodhouse.  The sun shone for us the whole time we were there, which made our morning even more special!


We observed lots of different types of flowers, minibeasts and footprints in the mud.  


A huge thank you to all the grown ups that walked with us.


Below are a few photographs for you to enjoy and discuss with your child.


Here is the F2 Curriculum overview for the Summer Term.

Spring GLOW day 

Here are a few photographs for you to enjoy.

The children have had a great time making potions, threading journey sticks, going on spring walks and dancing with the worms.



Our trip to Perlethorpe

We had a great Christmas trip to Perlethopre.  Thank you to all the parents and grandparents that helped out.

The children enjoyed travelling there on a double decker bus, making Christmas crafts and re-creating the Christmas story on a walk around the beautiful surroundings of Perlethorpe.

Here are a few photographs from our day.

Anti-Bullying week

Throughout this week we have been thinking about how we can show respect for others and why this is important.  The children have come up with ideas of how they could achieve this, including, being kind, sharing, helping others and treating our friends how we expect to be treated ourselves. 

Here are a few of the activities the children have taken part in.

Forest Schools.

We do forest schools every Monday.

Children need appropriate clothes every Monday afternoon.

Sunhats and suncreen in the summer (hopefully!)

Wet weather gear, warm clothes and wellies the rest of the year.

Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and should be returned to school on the following Monday. We have given every child a letter formation pack.  Please complete these at a time when you have a few minutes.



Please read with your child at least three times a week and sign their diary. Use the reading book that is provided from school. You can make a comment if you wish. At the end of the week children who have read at home at least 3 times will have their bookworm photograph displayed on the classroom door that week.
