Foundation Stage 2

 

Summer Term  2017

Welcome back!

We will be starting the summer term exploring capacity and water. We will be learning all about: life cycles, growth, healthy eating and animals. The children will be participating it lots of exciting activities which will develop their understanding of ‘Knowledge and Understanding of the world’. They will be involved in taking care of the school chicks and hatching our own caterpillar eggs and watching them transform into beautiful butterflies.

This term we will also be celebrating healthy living week, where the children will enjoy lots of active and outdoor activities including planting beans.

They will also be given the opportunity to take part in lots of exciting activities such as; baking, sewing, creative activities, retelling stories in our outdoor woodland area and taking part in many creative activities all planned around children's interests.

Our home school links continue to be extremely strong! All of our parents are working with their child on their set targets and providing us with information regarding their child's achievements’ through their 'Magical Me' book.

Our Whole School ‘In it To Win It’ challenge (previously '3 strikes for a bike') for the children who are reading at least if not more than 4 times a week and is recorded in their reading records by an adult, homework is handed in on a Thursday and have their PE Kit in school for our Tuesday afternoon PE session, those children will gain a raffle ticket each week they accomplished these for a chance to win a prize, so please keep reading and supporting your child at home.  

We have an open door policy, if you wish to speak to us about anything then please do not hesitate to contact us. Please feel free to leave a comment for us at the bottom our page, where it will be gratefully received, thank you.

Any support, access to books, the internet and trips out will greatly enhance your child’s learning experience and engagement in the topics.  All seven areas of learning will be covered using this term's themes and following the children’s interests.
