Welcome to FS2

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.

Important Information

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 enjoyed tasting different cereals, making our own bread and butter and trying different breakfast foods from around the world.  We have been using our developing phonic skills to read and write words and simple sentences.  Our counting skills are developing and we have enjoyed exploring our Counting Collections.

Our Homework

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.

 

Reading Homework

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:

Goldilocks and the 3 Bears

The Magic Porridge Pot

The Little Red Hen

Rosie's Walk

 

PE

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

  • a white t-shirt
  • black shorts or jogging bottoms
  • plimsolls or trainers

Please ensure all PE kit and uniform is labelled clearly.  This helps save time, confusion and will help prevent it being lost.
