Curriculum

 

Click below to see this year's Curriculum Planning and the Medium Term Planning for this term.

 

This term our Learning Journey is:

 

Long Long Ago

 

We will be learning about traditional tales and what makes a good story. In PE we will be dancing this half term taking the role of different characters and thinking about how they move. To develop our understanding of the world we will be learning about different materials and their properties, the senses and all about Chinese New Year towards the end of this half term. 

 

Home Learning in FS2

 

Reading Champions:

Reading at home is an important part to ensuring your child becomes a confident reader. As such we want all the Butterflies to become Reading Champions by reading at home every day!

Read with your child each night and record this in their reading record book. For every 15 home reads your child completes they will be awarded with a Reading Badge in the their book. Can you collect them all?

 

Maths Rockstars Targets:

We will be sending home a Maths Rockstars booklet to support your child with their learning in Mathematics. The targets in the booklet are designed to develop the children’s mental maths skills which you can help them with at home. Your child will need to bring their Maths Rockstars booklet to school every day as we will be working with the children on their targets in the classroom. Please do not complete the ‘Date Achieved’ boxes on the children’s booklets as this will be filled in by school staff.

If you have any questions about the Maths Rockstars booklets, or the curriculum in general, please speak to a member of the FS Team.

 

Spelling Shed:

Look out for your child's Spelling Shed user name and password in their Reading Record Book and let them get practising!

PE in FS2

 

Our PE day is Wednesday - please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on a Monday and is taken home every Friday in case it is needed on a different day.

Please also ensure that long hair is tied back and earrings are removed on PE day.

Here are some useful websites that will support you with learning at home. Please do not feel any pressure to complete a certain number of tasks each day or to stick to a rigid learning routine. Remember, at school your children learn through a mixture of adult led and child initiated activities so while they spend some of their day sitting with a grown up to focus on a specific area of the curriculum, they also have lots of opportunities to learn through their play in our provision.

For our FS children playing is learning!
