So Spring term has begun… After a lovely festive break, it feels great to be back at school with our lovely Foundation Stage class. We have so many exiting topics to look forward to leading up to Easter, and we can’t wait to get started!
After a lot of practice, it is safe to say that Foundation Stage 2 are well and truly settled in the daily routine of school, which includes phonics, maths, literacy, guided reading and all of the daily independent activities waiting for them.
We have covered a variety of books already such as The Gruffalo’s Child, Winnie the Pooh, Peter Rabbit and next week, On the Way Home. After Spring half term, we are looking forward to our topic of Food Glorious Food.
What a busy half term we have had in our jungle of a classroom for the topic ‘deep in the jungle’. We have enjoyed learning in our ‘Jungle Tree house’, ‘Rumble in the jungle’ police station and our jungle music area, as well as all of the other areas around the classroom. Our topic after half term will be ‘Down by the sea’, where the children should expect yet another transformed classroom. The children will able to enjoy the ‘decorate a fish workshop’, ‘The shipwreck’ construction area and the ‘Aquarium’ where children can investigate as marine biologists! There is so much to look forward to!
In maths this half term, we have really focused on o clock and half past times, and identifying these both as analogue and digital times! We have counted in 2s, 5s and 10s and looked more in to addtion and subtraction using the ‘counting on counting back’ method.
