Foundation Stage 2

Hello FS2,

Welcome to St Saviour's. My name is Miss Powell (nee Mrs Corr), and I am your class teacher this year. With Mrs Bennett, our aim is to ensure that in FS2 you come to school everyday excited ready to explore and learn

Our learning is based on the foundations of the Early Years Curriculum, incorporating directed teaching, teacher led group activities and independent exploration to help each child to grow and develop. 

We hope that you enjoy your time in FS2, making friends and creating lots of memories. 

Key information

PE will be on a WEDNESDAY

Children will change into their PE kit in school and then will stay in their kit. They will come home with their uniform.

PE kits should be returned as soon as possible for the following lesson. 

All children need a labelled pair of wellies that will stay in school for the year.

Children should come to school prepared to be outside - coats are essential as the weather can be very unpredictable! 

School Prayer and Mission Statement 

What will we be learning in FS2?

Religious Education

God's World


During our topic, the children will be exploring the following themes: 

Know that God made the world and think about all the things God has made for us.

Know that God has asked us to care for the world and think of ways in which we can help to do this.

Know that God loves and cares for each one of us and reflect on what this means for us.

Know that God made each one of us different and special and reflect on how we can thank God for everything.


Literacy in FS2 is split into 'Reading' and 'Writing'


To support reading, children in FS2 and Key Stage 1 will be following the 'Little Wandles' Phonics and Reading Programme.  More information can be found by clicking the link below.
