Welcome to FS2

What an amazing start to school for our new FS2 children. The children are starting to show great signs of settling in well and have so much fun in the first two weeks. In line with our seasonal curriculum, the children have been thinking about Summer time and in particular, the seaside. They have loved designing sandcastles and beach huts and they have been talking about their own experiences of…

Topic OK…So we have made it to your very final week in FS2 and what a very strange first year of school you have all had.  I have really missed teaching you all as a full class and so it is with some sadness that this week I am saying goodbye to you all for the summer.  Mrs Senior is very lucky to be teaching your class after the summer…

Topic Last week, in one of the FS2 bubbles, some of the children lifted up one of the heavy logs in the FS2 yard to find lots and lots of worms.  We loved watching them wriggle and dance and some of us even made up our own worm dance.  Then we watched a sneaky bird, fly down from the fence, pick up a worm and fly away with it in…

Topic I’ve noticed in my garden at home that there are many, many minibeasts around at the moment.  Just some of the things that I’ve spied are ladybirds, spiders, woodlice, worms and so much more.  Every year the FS2 children love exploring minibeasts so I am sure that you will love the learning this week.  I have based quite a bit of the learning around ladybirds but we will explore…

Topic Welcome to a new week!  This week we are moving our learning from rockpools into the ocean, and more specifically about the wonderful animal ‘whales’.  Did you know that you can spot whales in the seas around the UK if you are very lucky?  I have some wonderful whale stories for you to take a listen to, but our main story this week is called ‘The Storm Whale’.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czczPkmP988…

Topic Hello again everyone!  This week we are thinking about trips to the coast and how it can be great fun to explore rockpools.  If you ever get the chance, it is really good fun to search around rockpools and it can be just like entering a different world!  There are so many creatures to discover such as crabs, limpets, tiny fish, jellyfish and all kinds of plants; if you…

Topic Whilst we are all ‘locked down’ at the moment, I have noticed that lots of people are enjoying doing a lot more baking at home.   With this in mind, I have decided to base this week’s learning around food… in particular around gingerbread. I’m sure that many of you have already heard the story of the gingerbread man (if not, there are lots of read aloud versions on YouTube). …
