Welcome to Foundation
In September our topic in F2 will be -
‘Do you want to be my friend?’
We will be spending lots of time making new friends, thinking about how to be a good friend, finding out about each other and how we can work together in our new classroom. We will be sharing lots of stories and developing our excellent listening skills to support all of our future learning. We will spend lots of time talking about our families and the things that we enjoy doing at home, also finding out about any shared interests that we have.
In numeracy this term we will be concentrating on recognising numbers, ordering numbers and counting to 20. This will include number hunts, ordering number cards and counting a variety of objects. We will spend time counting as a group whilst marching, clapping, jumping etc. We will also become familiar with 2D/ 3D shapes, remembering shape names and looking at their properties.
In phonics, reading and writing we will recap and learn Set 1 RWI simple sounds (m,a,s,d,t,i,n etc.) and also continue to use Fred Frog to help us blend and segment words. We will be mark making in many ways and continue practicing writing independently.
As a way of sharing the fantastic learning that we do in F2, I will send photographs and information via Class Dojo. Please use this as an opportunity to talk to your child about what they have done in school.
Remember, you can send photographs through Dojo to support our assessment of your child by sharing any family experiences or home learning. Please add comments where possible, thank you!
Home Reading - Ideally, children should be listened to read every day. We do ask that children read at least three times a week. Please write a comment in your child's reading diary and we will also add a comment when we listen to children reading in school. Daily reading at home secures the skills taught in school and improves your child’s confidence to ‘have a go’.
F2 PE day is Monday – Please ensure that children have their PE kit in school each week.
We are very much looking forward to the year ahead J.
