Our Class

 

 

Learning through play

 

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. 

           

 The Big Question

 


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!

 

The Way The Truth and The Life

 

Sorrow and Joy

 

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. 

 

The Unforgiving Debtor

A story about kindness and hurting others.
Was the King kind to the debtor? Was the debtor kind to his servant?

Phonics is an extremely important aspect of learning in FS2.

Please remember!

 

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.
