Low Road Foundation Stage 2
At Low Road, we have a maximum of 30 children in Foundation Stage 2. These children are split into two key worker groups. They are grouped based on who their key worker is. The key workers are Miss Morag Watson and Mrs Lindsey Hampson. We have one teaching assistant who supports across both groups, Miss Siobhan Ferry.
All children attend full days at school once in Reception (Foundation Stage 2), this is 8.25am-3.15pm. Parents/carers can choose whether their child brings a packed lunch or has a free school meal. Each child receives a carton of milk and a piece of fruit or vegetable every day. We provide each child with a labelled bottle of water.
Every child is provided with a book bag, we ask parents to read with their child every night, for those who find this difficult, we now offer a supported reading session every afternoon 3.00-3.15pm. Each child has a profile with work they have produced and they also have a Tapestry account, which all parents/carers can access, this has a wide range of observations on.
Every half term we have a topic focus, such as, 'Under the Sea', however, this does not mean that the children only learn about this topic. We complete one focus a week that may be linked to the topic or something that follows the children's interests. The children have key learning times throughout the day; Phonics, Big Maths and Storytimes. We encourage child initiated learning and so therefore, provide a wide range of continuous provision, that offers challenge and many open ended learning opportunities. We invite parents and carers in each half term for a 'Stay and Play' session that covers a different Area of Learning.
