Reception - Foundation Stage 2

Welcome to Foundation Stage 2!

We are very lucky to have a fantastic new building and outdoor area for our learning this year. 

Our focus in the Autumn term is settling in and learning new routines. We are also talking about 'ourselves' and how to be healthy. We are making new friendships and learning about different feelings through stories, information books and games. 
Look out in the home/school journal for weekly learning so you can support children at home. 
Our  staff are Mrs Wilkinson (teacher) and Mrs McLaughlin (TA), Mrs Johns (TA) also supports during the morning and Mrs Brammer (Learning Mentor) supports us over lunchtime and at the end of the day. We do lots of different activities in FS2 including; phonics, developing our singing and music skills, learning how to care for an animal (Shelly our tortoise), developing a love of reading and fine tuning our fine and gross motor skills.

We have lots of different play activities such as role play, small world, painting, drawing, writing, sand, water and outdoor play. We love sharing books in Foundation Stage 2 and have 'Mystery Readers', who come in to read us stories!

We have lots of exciting topics and enjoy visiting places on school trips. This year we have been to the cinema to watch a Christmas film. 

We like to have lots of visitors in Class 2, like firemen, policemen, the crossing lady and nurses. We always ask lots of really thoughtful questions.

In the Spring term we are studying 'Space' (reading Whatever Next and Aliens Love Underpants) as well as looking at the season 'Spring' and exploring what plants need to grow.

Our current topic is 'Where do our letters go?' We are sharing the story of the Jolly Postman and talking about the characters that are in the story. Each week we will be doing the traditional tale of each character that the Jolly Postman delivers his letters to such as Cinderella, The Three Bears and Jack and the Beanstalk.



We enjoy our learning in Reception
