Foundation Stage 2
Foundation Stage Two
Hello and welcome to Foundation Stage 2’s area of the website. Most people know us by the name of Reception but our posh title is Foundation Stage 2.
There are two classes in FS2.
Mrs Jones and Miss McMeo
And together with Mrs Harwood and Mrs Wilkinson
we make it a happy, safe and fun place for all the children.
Important information is displayed on the windows of the conservatory but it will also be posted on here together with our half-termly newsletter. Please make sure that every child has a book bag as it is needed for reading books and letters to go home.
Topic this half term – Spring 1: ‘Winter’ and ‘Once upon a time’
Winter. We’ll be looking at Winter weather, the clothes we wear in Winter, exploring the snow, looking at the Polar regions and finding out which animals like the cold weather.
Once upon a time. We will be reading lots of stories but especially focussing on the stories of ‘The 3 Billy Goats Gruff’ and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We will be acting out the stories and finding out whether the characters in the stories could be nicer to each other!
Foundation Stage Two Targets:
We have been working hard to set our learning targets. We would also like all the children to be doing the following at home:
- Reading/looking at books.
- Writing our name and other words, holding our pencil correctly and writing all of our letters in the correct way too.
- Counting up to 20 objects.
- Independently getting dressed and going to the toilet
We have a pebble pot for good behaviour which we try and fill every week so we get a treat - it could be a sticker, extra playtime or something nice to eat! We get gold stars for good behaviour and good work too.
We have a ‘Star of the Week’. This is someone who has shown the adults that they have tried really hard all week. They get to take our class toy home for the weekend but we must remember to bring it back to school on a Monday!
As we do more work over the year we’ll fill you in and maybe put some photos on of what we have been doing. We love talking about what we are doing and I’m sure you will be just as excited as we are!
