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 Wilkes and Mrs Groves.
We are really looking forward to an exciting year working with the FS2 children and parents/carers.
The FS2 team have really enjoyed meeting all of you over the last couple of days . We are so proud of all the children and their positive attitudes about coming to school. They have amazed us with the way they have said good-bye to their grown ups and come into their brand new classrooms. We have had lots of fun exploring the different activities and it has been a pleasure to start to get to know the children.
We will put some photographs of the different things we have been doing on this page later in the week.
Thank you so much for your support- the children are a credit to you and we are looking forward to working with you this year.
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.
