The children in FS2 love exploring, solving problems, being imaginative and working with their friends.
Please keep an eye out for our updated slideshow throughout the year to see what we get up to!
Please remember to take a look and interact with our school Twitter page @StSavioursPri
In FS2 we try and share our learning throughout the week as there is often so much going on!
Who am I?
All our learning will be based on our big question.
Some of the exciting activities we have planned include:
Learning about ourselves
Recognising how we are all different
Creating self portraits
Talking to a Nurse about our bodies
Learning about our friends and families
Grandparents 'Stay and Play'
During our topic, 'God's World', we will be focusing on the following main teachings:
To know that God made the world and to think about all the things God has made for us.
To know that God has asked us to care for the world and think of ways in which we can help to do this.
To know that God loves and cares for each one of us and reflect on what this means for us.
To know that God made each one of us different and special and reflect on how we can thank God for everything.

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.
Consolidate listening skills through activities focused on rhythm and rhyme and identifying different sounds in the environment.
We will begin to learn the Phase 2 Sounds. These initial sounds will create the foundations needed for reading.
We will begin to learn how to blend sounds together in order to make a word.
Singing - YouTube - Jolly Phonics
We use lots of singing as a way to learn new sounds. Please use the link below to practise some of the new sounds we will be learning.
Why not ask your child to teach you our songs!
This video clip will help to explain and demonstrate oral blending - just click the picture!
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.
This halt term we will be focusing on:
Learning number names and using the language of number.
Exploring number through rhymes such as 5 little ducks, 10 green bottles and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
Using number names in play.
Begin to match numerals and quantities and counting objects up to 10.
Please click on the pictures below to listen to each nursery rhyme.
Shape, Space and Measure
This half term we will be playing with shapes in the construction area, making arrangements, such as making skeleton pictures using white straws and cotton buds.
Using positional language in PE and Performing Arts.
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.
