We are the FANTASTIC Foxes and we are always kind to each other, listen carefully and try our best when working and playing together. We have lots of fun and are always keen to try new things!!
Our teacher in F2 is Mrs Baker.
Our teaching assistants are Miss Hrycaj and Miss Richards.
Our Summer term topics are...
What do plants need to grow?
What can you see in the woods?
To begin our first topic we will be visiting B&Q and then planting the seeds we buy and watching them grow. We will watch caterpillars change into butterflies and hatch ducklings in our incubator. We will then finish this half term by thinking about healthy and unhealthy foods.
In the second half term we will sharing three stories ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘The Gruffalo’ and finishing with a trip to Sherwood Pines to follow the Gruffalo trail.
Over the term we will be covering all of the seven Foundation Stage Areas of learning.
Communication and Language.
This term we will be talking about the life cycle of plants and animals and then sharing stories set in the woods. We will talk about things we know and will share our experiences with others. We will be recording our ideas and will share our ideas with others.
We will use lots of resources to improve our fine motor control: such as cutting, threading, using tweezers and using malleable materials. We will use our outside area and will think about how to be safe when we are playing. We will use the hall to take part in dance, gymnastics and to use small apparatus. We will also think about what we need to do to stay healthy and safe
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
We will be thinking about working together, helping each other and caring for plants and animals. We will then be working hard to follow the golden rules to help us to work and play with others so that everyone is happy. We will be thinking about rules we have to follow to be part of a community.
We will share lots of stories, create story maps and retell the story using props. Children will have many opportunities to write for a range of purposes including writing their own stories and writing facts about plants and animals. We will be reading together during shared carpet sessions and individually. We will also share lots of different non-fiction texts.
The children will be recognising and working with larger numbers and adding, subtracting and sharing out quantities. We will be comparing size, weight and capacity. We will find out about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be representing data in different ways.
Understanding of the World
This term we will be learning about what plants and animals need to grow and their life cycles and comparing similarities and differences. We will be using ICT for a purpose.
Expressive and Creative Development
We will be thinking about different ways to express themselves through art work, music and dance. We will be making models and designing for a purpose. There will also be lots of the opportunities to develop thinking in different role play situations.
