Foundation Stage 2


This term in Foundation Stage 2 our topic is 'Cards, Candles and Celebrations'.


As part of this topic we will be learning about different celebrations and festivals. These will include birthdays, Harvest Festival, Diwali and Christmas.

English texts will include 'Winnie's Birthday', 'The Blue Balloon' and the 'Nativity story'.


Children will learn how to sequence stories and predict endings. Daily phonics sessions will be taught and as the children learn how to form each new diagraph, they will then learn how to label objects linked to the texts. They will also learn how to write their name.

In mathematics children will be learning how to count and recognise numbers. They will also learn about 2D and 3D shapes, naming, describing them and using them to create patterns.

In the other areas of the curriculum we will be making cakes and bread, using ICT to create pictures and write our names as well as exploring the different ways that people celebrate.

We hope you have all had a fabulous summer.

Staff are looking forward to meeting the children again and working with you as parents  ensuring your child has a happy start to their school life.
