Welcome to Class 2RH

WELCOME TO OUR NEW SCHOOL YEAR!

You’ll find us squirreling away in our room – Bec Houghton, Jayne Chippendale and Sophie Welch joining the team on a Thursday and Friday.

We are starting back with a new exciting topic – Myths, Magic and Mystery. The children have already started to explore this – making castles, dragons, finding out about Kings and Queens from the past and designing their own mythical creatures. Check out our launch day pictures below!

We have been reading ‘The Dragon Machine’ by Helen Ward and will be writing our own stories soon based on this amazing tale. The children are loving the book! Check out the story here:

Al the Alligator

We are really looking forward to welcoming Al the Alligator to Foundation One for the first time tomorrow!

He will be visiting us every week from now on to choose a child to take ‘Little Al’ home with them for the week.

For your chance to have ‘Little Al’ around for a sleepover all you have to do is attend nursery every day AND arrive on time for the session. On Friday, all names will be put into a hat and Al will visit us on a Monday and choose the winner.

Good luck everybody!

Welcome back!

Hello everyone and welcome back to a brand new school year! I hope your children have a wonderful time in our class and enjoy every day.

Our first topic is ‘Myths, Magic and Mystery’ where we will be looking at castles, Kings and Queens, magical beasts, dragons and much more! Our class book is called ‘The Dragon Machine’ which the children are enjoying reading.

In our classroom we have the wonderful Karen who is our class Teaching Assistant along with Bev Mee who will also be supporting the children in our class. If at any time you need to speak with us, you can do so either in the mornings before the bell goes or at the end of the school day. You can also Dojo message me at any time, although I cannot guarantee I will reply back straight away after the school day has finished!

F2 Autumn 1 topics

This half term we will be learning about ourselves.  We will encourage the children to talk about themselves e.g. what they look like, what they like and dislike and encourage them to talk about their families and friends. This is a really nice topic to start the school year with.  Your child will bring home a memory box, so you can fill it with special items that are special to your child and family.  Thank you to the families that have returned these already.  If you have not yet returned your memory box, it would be helpful if you returned it by the end of this week.

We finish this half term with our Harvest Festival celebration which will take place on Wednesday 18th of October. The children will learn the story of the Little Red Hen and will learn some Harvest songs. We will let you know in the coming weeks of the time. It would be lovely to see as many family members as possible at the celebration.

Homework

Your children will be very tired over this term, as they get used to coming to school all day.  We do not set formal homework but we recommend you share stories with your child every day. A lovely time to do this is at bedtime.

In the coming weeks we may send home activities which reinforce the work we are doing in class. Every week this term we will have a ‘Rhyme of the Week’, please let your child practise these new songs, so we can sing them together at group time. This is not compulsory, but we hope you take the opportunity to support your child with their learning.

What’s happening when in F2

We will be starting our weekly PE sessions this Wednesday.  First, we work at taking off our own shoes and socks and putting them back on ourselves. If you can let your child practise these skills at home we would really appreciate it!

In a couple of weeks we will start to get changed into our PE kit.  Again, let your child practise getting dressed at home. It is very difficult to support every child at the same time, so we encourage them to be as independent as possible.

On Monday afternoon it will be our Forest Schools slot. We encourage children to come in suitable clothing for the weather. It is advisable to come in old clothes on this day, as the children may get their clothes dirty or damaged. It is helpful if all children wear trousers on this day to keep legs warm and safe. We will spend the whole of the afternoon outside learning a range of skills.  Waterproof trousers and jackets will be provided. If your child has wellington boots it will be really helpful if you could being these Mondays, as we only have a small amount of spare boots.

 

Welcome to F2!

We would like to welcome you all to F2.

The children have settled really well and are enjoying their time with us.  Some of them are a little tired now they are coming for a full day, but they will soon get used to their new routine.

We are really impressed that most children are bringing in their book bags daily, thank you for supporting us with this.  Can we ask that children and families do not change the children’s reading books, as we like to see what reading skills they have gained from week to week. It is really important that bedtime books are shared several times throughout the week, so your child knows the book really well. Your child’s book will be changed weekly.

We also have lots of PE bags on pegs. If you have not yet brought in a PE kit could you do this in the next week.

Remember snack is 50p per week, please hand to a member of staff on Mondays.

If you have any questions or concerns please speak to a member of staff at the beginning or the end of the day.

Thankyou
