Welcome to F2! This newsletter tells you all about some of the things the children will be learning about and experiencing throughout the half-term. ‘All about me’ is our main focus.
In ‘All about me’ children will-
Talk about their favourite things.
Talk about their features and discuss similaritites and differences. E.g. hair/eye colour.
Make a collage of their face.
Share photographs of their families.
Think about what we might want to do when we grow up.
Number and shape work will include-
Number songs and rhymes.
Counting objects and ordering them.
Sorting and matching objects by colour, shape or size.
Recognising numbers from 1-5, then 1-10.
F2 will be starting Read Write Inc as a whole class initially, before separating into smaller groups. We are practicing listening for initial sounds and writing these down using the correct pencil grips and letter formation.
Parents can help by-
Providing children with a family photo to share with the class. Please write your child’s name on the back.
Letting us know if your child has specific interests out of school.
Talking to your child about their interests and about family members.
Our stories, songs and rhymes include-
Traditional nursery rhymes
Action songs such as ‘If you’re happy and you know it’ and ‘Heads, shoulders, knees and toes’.
Books about starting school.
