World Book Day 2018
What a fantastic day for World Book Day sharing amazing outfits and books together. We had a parade in the hall and certificates for 'The Best Costume' and for a 'Fantastic Outfit' from each class. Well done to all of the children in F2 for taking part in such a lovely day.
We have been creating some super art work inspired by Giuseppe. We have used different fruit and vegetables to create portraits. The children have had lots of fun being creative and using their imagination.
Take a look at Giuseppe's website to see where our inspiration came from:
Safer Internet Day 6th February 2018
On Tuesday the children took part in a carousel of activities all related to being safe on the internet. We are making a kindness tree with all of the children’s handprints, showing that we are kind to each other, face to face and online. We read about a “Penguinpig” and learnt that not all websites are real. The children discussed different scenarios which “Buddy the Dog” found himself with including pop ups on his tablet, in app purchases and talking to people he didn’t know. We also learnt a song from Buddy:
If you want to discuss internet safety with your child, the books which we read are:
Thank you to the PTA!
The children had a very exciting assembly. The PTA have very generously presented us with a brand new bike. The children have loved taking turns and sharing the bike in our outdoor provision. Thank you PTA!

Lots of lovely stories, pyjamas, tents and twinkle lights and even some hot chocolate too!

Reading Breakfast at Wallasey Library!
What a huge success! F2 loved their reading breakfast.
Our sincere thanks to the wonderful library staff for providing such a lovely event and delicious breakfast Thank you also to Miss Jones for organising.
3d Shape Museum
Thank you to everyone who gave us boxes for the children to explore. We all enjoyed looking at the different properties of the shapes; how many faces? how many corners?
After learning all of the properties the children then sorted the shapes into a shape museum with all the same shapes together. The children wrote labels for the different shapes.
We have loved getting ready for Christmas in Foundation Two. The children have enjoyed their special Christmas Dinner, had their amazing Nativity Show and made lots of lovely Christmas Cards. All of the Foundation Two staff would like to wish everyone a magical Christmas and a Happy New Year! We look forward to seeing you all again in January.
Our springtime focus is on friendships and making relationships. Friendship is an important part of Early Years Education as the children are growing in confidence and making special bonds in school. We will be looking at different texts that encorporate friendship and challenges chidren face. Our key texts are:
- Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers
- A Frog in Winter by Max Velthuijs
- Bedtime for Monsters by Ed Vere
Our non-fiction link to Lost and Found will be Penguins and their natural environment. Our main text for this is:
- The Emporors Egg by Martin Jenkins
We have been having lots of fun in our creativity club over the past few weeks. We have made Christmas decorations, painted snowflakes, made snowmen out of marshmellows and lots more. The children have loved getting in the festive spirit and sharing their art skills with their friends.
All the children have now been to forest school for their first block of sessions, and all had a fabulous time. The children have been balancing along a rope bride, climbing a ladder, bug hunting, digging and making lots of lovely creations in the mud kitchen. We have used the bow saw and made wood cookies which the children loved to made and used the saw very safely. F2A and F2C will be the next classes to go again in January.
Children in Need
Thank you for all of the donations for Children in Need, the children all looked fantastic in their yellow and spots. During assembly Pudsey Bear presented the winners of the colouring competition with their prizes, a new book. Well done to those children.
Room on the Broom
Since half term we have been looking at the book "Room on a Broom". We have learnt actions to remember the story (I'm sure the children have shown you these), we have used ordinal numbers to place the characters in the correct order and also written about our own animals and their characteristics.
F2C enjoyed saying the story with the actions:
All of the children joined in making the nursery rhyme themed scarecrows. Thank you for all of your donations.
F2A made Incy Wincy Spider.
F2B made Little Bo Peep.
F2C made Little Miss Muffet.
F2D made Mary, Mary.
F2A have had their first mystery reader. All the children enjoyed waiting to see who our mystery reader was and sat and listened intently to the story of 'Paddington Bear' the children loved the story. A huge thank you to our mystery reader.
If you would like to be the next mystery reader please speak to your child's class teacher and remember it's a mystery so do not tell your child you are coming.
