Welcome to Foundation Stage 2

In FS2 we are enjoying our first term in school and we have been busy getting to know our EYFS unit, staff and our new class mates.   In EYFS play is a very important part of our development and most learning will be introduced through a mixture of carefully planned play and adult-led focused activities.   During the fist half term we spend time getting to know every child and finding our what they know, so we can plan our next steps to help them achieve.   We have already started with our phonics scheme ELS, and the children are working hard to remember new sounds daily. Our phonic sessions are a combination of both reading and writing sounds as well as a range of fun activities to help the children remember what they have been taught.  

Learning this term

Throughout this term we will be covering topics including ‘Marvellous Me’ and ‘Celebrations and Traditions’.  We will also cover seasonal changes such as Autumn and Harvest.

In PE this term our themes are ‘introduction to PE’ and ‘Fundamentals’. These themes focus on introducing the children to the basic skills of PE, getting to know the hall and following instructions. We will also be working on taking off and putting on our shoes and socks. We will be introducing the children to our balance bikes which we hope will be a real hit!

Clearly label EVERYTHING that comes into school with your child’s name – fleeces, coats, shoes, water bottles, hats etc.

Please ensure that your child brings a bookbag and water bottle to school each day.

Please dress children appropriately for the weather, including a warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves as the weather gets colder.

We are always available if you need to talk to us about anything – please just ask.

Thank you,
