News and Topics

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.

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
