Foundation Stage 2 2018/19

Welcome to Foundation Stage 2

At the beginning of each day we welcome parents to support their children with a learning task that we set. This is a valuable time for you to see what we have been learning in school and help your child. If you wish to support your child please come into class with them between 8.35 and 8.45, when school will start.

As part of our focus on developing reading we ask you to read with your child for about 10 minutes every day and a booklet has been provided for you to keep a record of this. Each morning when you come into school please help your child choose a new reading book.

Whilst learning to read in school your child will read with the teacher as part of a small group each week. During the year we will focus on groups of children for individual reading and will contact you when this involves your child.

If children return their reading folder fifteen times they will receive a special prize. We will also be doing random checks in the morning where children could earn themselves a treat.

PE is on Tuesday morning for Miss Lawson's class and on a Friday morning for Miss Bamfield's class.

Your child will need a PE kit on these days. (Blue sport T-shirt, provided by school, and black shorts).

You will need to inform school if your child is unable to do P.E. Jewellery including earrings cannot be worn on P.E days.

Research shows that it is beneficial for children to drink plenty of water as they learn so please bring a water bottle for your child into school.

If you have any time to come into school and support children with their learning we would be very grateful! Please let us know.

Once again Welcome to Foundation Stage 2, if there is anything you would like to discuss please do not hesitate to contact us.
