Working Together To Be The Best We Can Be
The FS2 team would like to welcome you to our FS2 page.
Here you will find lots of information about all the fun things Class 2 and Class 3 are learning about as well as homework and some useful information to support our learning.
Meet the teaching team
Miss Hepworth and Miss Shipley are pleased to be the teachers working in FS2 this year supported by Mrs Hawkins, Mrs Parsons and Mrs Wilkes.
We are really looking forward to an exciting year working with the FS2 children and parents/carers.
We held a welcome meeting at the start of term, where we shared lots of useful information about the learning and end of year expectations for FS2. You can see a copy of the information below.
Our learning this Term
This term we are learning about healthy lifestyles and celebrations of light.
In the first half term we have enjoyed finding out about the importance of breakfast. We are looking forward to learning about different festivals of light in the second half term.
Our Learning Journey
Look at our amazing learning journey so far this term.
We have started our Once Upon a time topic looking at the 3 Little pigs. We have loved retelling the story and making our own houses! In Maths we have been adding numbers together in lots of different ways and even writing number sentences. We are very excited to have some new outdoor equipment and we have loved exploring it!
Look at the fantastic homework that has been completed this half term.
We really appreciate the support parents/carers give to their children and this certainly has a positive impact on their learning.
Well done to everyone who has received a bronze, silver or gold award for their homework this half term.
Find the current homework challenges for this half term below.
As a parent/carers you can support your child in developing a love of reading.
Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out what’s printed on the page. Through hearing stories, children are exposed to a wide range of words. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital as they start to read. It’s important for them to understand how stories work too. Even if your child doesn’t understand every word, they’ll hear new sounds, words and phrases which they can then try out, copying what they have heard.
As children start to learn to read at school, you can play an important role in helping to keep them interested in books. Find out what interests them, help them to find books that will be engaging and fun, and spend time reading the books they bring home from school together.
Please remember to write in your child's reading record when you have read or shared a book together. It doesn't have to be their guided reading book; comics, magazines, signs, labels, shopping lists and books of their own choice are all examples of things you may read together.
The library is free to join and gives your child access to 100's of books to borrow.
Books to share
You may wish to share some of these stories/books linked to our learning to share at home:
The 3 Little Pigs
The Jolly Postman
The 3 Billy Goats Gruff
We will also be looking at a range of non fiction books focusing on materials, houses and homes, landmarks, bridges and atlases! We will be looking at the features including using a contents page and an index. It would be beneficial for the children to look at what non-fiction books they have at home. We would love to hear some of the facts that you have learned!
Children need a PE kit in school with them every day. Please encourage your child to get dressed as independently as possible at home.
PE kit should include
Please ensure all PE kit and uniform is labelled clearly. This helps save time, confusion and will help prevent it being lost.
Look at some of the learning and wonderful work class 2 and 3 have completed this year.
