Autumn Term 2023

Welcome to Foundation Stage 2!  

It is so exciting to meet all of our wonderful new learners this term! We have lots of fantastic learning oportunities planned and are looking forward to starting this new school journey with you.

If you would like to find out what we will be exploring this term, please download the FS2 information booklet at the bottom of this page. There is also lots of handy information about how you can support your child with their development and their learning journey linked below.

We hope the information will help support you and your child! 

Key Information

Phonics: a big part of our learning this term will focus around Phonics. We will be following the Little Wandle phonics scheme and your child will be sent home with a booklet to support their learning at home. See below for extra support for parents! 

Reading: we will be following the Little Wandle Reading Scheme which uses phonetically decodable books matched to your child's learning. These will be sent home on a Friday and school be returned to school by the Monday. They are used throughout the week, so it is really important they are returned in a timely manner - thankyou!

PE: PE will be on a Friday morning with Mrs Campbell. Please can children arrive in their PE clothes on a Friday, making sure to wear comfy shoes for the whole day! We will be doing PE inside for this half term.
