The children in FS2 love exploring, solving problems, being imaginative and working with their friends.
Enjoy our slideshow and see what we get up to.
What is at the top of the beanstalk?
All our learning will be based on our big question.
Some of the exciting activities we have planned include:
Using natural materials to build our own beanstalk
Creating our own castle walls for the role play area
Investigating what happens when we plant different seeds
Imagining we are the giant
Collecting magic beans
…and much, much more!
During our topic, 'Sorrow and Joy', we will be focusing on the following main teachings:
Understand we should try to be kind and not to hurt others.
Learn to say sorry when we hurt someone and ask Jesus to help us.
Know that Jesus forgave those who hurt him.
Know that Jesus died on Good Friday - but that this was not the end.
Phonics is an extremely important aspect of learning in FS2.
We follow the Letters and Sounds Phonics programme which you are able to access online for additional information.
Phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs
Phase 4 segmenting and blending CVCC and CCVC words
Singing - YouTube - Jolly Phonics
Why not ask your child to teach you our songs!
This video clip will help to explain and demonstrate oral blending.
We learn to segment words:
d - o - g
and blend them back together to make a word
You can't sound these words out - you just need to know them.
Please remember to read every night with your child(ren).
Even if your child is not reading fluently yet, it is important that you dedicate 10 minutes each evening to sit down and read their school book with them.
This might include asking questions about the front cover, talking about the pictures, making predications about what might happen next and modelling how to follow the words whilst reading.
