Welcome to Foundation Stage 2

Welcome back to school! hope you all have had a pleasant Easter break and spent time with your family. I am sure we are all looking forward to some warmer days ahead as we begin the Summer term in school. Our class theme for this half term will be growing and we will continue discussing the changes during each season now it is Spring. We will learn how a plant grows, sow our own seeds and watch them grow. We will take care of the plants in school and take some home once they have grown. Please further details on the knowledge organiser image and document in the files below.

P.E will be every Monday. Please send your child to school in their P.E on this day. 


Our class theme for Summer 1: Growing

We throughly enjoyed 'World Book Day' and our visit to the library last half term. We hope you have continued to visit the library as a family and developing a love of reading in your home. The class enjoyed listening and retelling different stories about journeys in role play. They discussed journeys they have been on with their family and learning about real life journeys that happened in the past linking to one of our key text 'Lost and Found' this half term. The children designed and created a boat using various materials. The tested their boats in the water tray and evaluated if they had sucessfully created a boat that could carry passangers and float in the water. We are so proud of the children growth in confidence and skills during their swimming sessions last term. I hope they will have the opportunity to continue to practise swimming in their own time and out of school lessons. Please take a look at some photos of learning in class this half term in the FS2 gallery below.

The children have had an amazing first half term of 2024. They have taken part in many experiences in class including baking, The Big Garden Birdwatch and Chinese New Year celebrations. They have all shown a wanting to learn and sticking at it attitude. We discussed the importance of sharing our feelings and tried out different techinques to refocus and remain calm when faced with a challenge. Please take a look at the photos from the half term in the gallery below. 




Welcome back! I hope you have had a peaceful Christmas break together. The children have had an amazing week back to school including their first swimming lesson on Wednesday which they all did fantastic.
