Foundation Two have been enjoying learning all about castles. We have been reading traditional tales and dressing up as kings and queens in our role play area. We have been learning about the different parts of a castle and using our phonics to label diagrams.
The children have created some wonderful art work using different techniques, including painting and box modelling.
Come into our classroom and have a look at our art gallery!

Fantastic Phonics in Foundation Two

We have been busy learning lots of phase three sounds this half term. We have been practising segmenting and blending the sounds to read the words. Children are becoming increasingly independent in Foundation, and are creating words and beginning to record simple sentences.

Letters to Santa…

In F1 we have enjoyed making letters to Santa practising our cutting skills and writing our names. We walked up to the post box to post our letters. The postman arrived to empty the post box so we saw our letters set off on their way to the North Pole.

Foundation Stage Dancethon 

The children had a great time performing the ten dances they have been learning. Thank you to everyone who came along to watch and all the sponsor money collected.

Our Halloween disco

We all enjoyed lots of fun games, music, dancing and tucking into our party bags!

Foundation Two enjoyed a day exploring the minibeasts and birdlife at Old Moor Reserve. We spent the morning pond dipping, then used binoculars to look for different species of birds from a bird hide. We even spotted a Lapwing, just like our class mascot, Lilly!
After our picnic, we went into the woodland habitat to hunt for more minibeasts! We used large nets to catch the flying minibeasts and looked at them closely through a magnifying glass!!
We had a fantastic time; Old Moor Reserve is definitely worth a visit!

Foundation Stage Royal Wedding

We had a fantastic time in a Foundation celebrating the wedding of Harry and Meghan. We had a wedding both morning and afternoon including the ceremony, throwing the bouquet and the first dance! We made flags to wave for the happy couple and crowns to wear! We decorated buns and ate strawberries and ice cream. We had a great day!

A message from Dr Digger…

When we arrived at school today, we had received a video from Dr Digger, a palaeontologist from The Natural History Museum.

He told us that a dinosaur had been spotted at Kimberworth Community Primary School, and it had laid some eggs in our playground!!

He asked us to help him look for the eggs…so off we went on a dinosaur egg hunt. We were so excited and couldn’t believe what we found….

Come and have a look in Foundation Two to see for yourself!!

Foundation 2 on the hunt for Teddy Ruxpin!

When we arrived in school on Wednesday, we were so excited to find a little letter left in our classroom

Hello F2, I’m a new friend for you. I’m cuddly and soft, but I’ve got a bit lost. I’m feeling hungry, I need a snack. See if you can find me….follow my tracks’

We were instructed to follow the clues and footprints around school…so we read each clue carefully and together we worked out where we needed to go!

Finally, we found our new friend hiding in Ms Roddis’ classroom, joining in with their Guided Reading session!

Eddie, Nora and the rest of the class are so pleased to welcome Teddy Ruxpin into Foundation 2.


As part of our topic ‘Bears’, Foundation Two spent the morning at The build a bear workshop in Meadowhall. We chose two very different bears, and then made a wish on a tiny heart before helping to stuff the bears! We then had the difficult job of choosing a name and an outfit for each bear!

Foundation Two are pleased to introduce, Eddie the Teddy and Nora the Explorer…..Please come in and meet our new friends!
