Welcome to FS2's Class Page
Class Teachers - Mrs Gordon, Mrs Steele & Mrs Caudwell
We have really enjoyed our Three Little Pigs book exploration as part of our traditional tales topic. We built houses for the 3 pigs using natural materials in the woods, we were really impressed with the children's great ideas and imagination. Later on that day, Mrs Gordon brought a hairdryer into school to pretend to be the big, bad wolf. We built houses using resources in our classroom and tested to see if they would stay strong when we turned the hairdryer on!
We had a wonderful Red Nose Day! We came to school wearing something red and had lots of fun!
We celebrated World book day last week with a special event called 'Books for Breakfast!' We came to school in our pyjamas and shared books with children from other classes whilst eating some yummy breakfast! Thank you for all the donations made, the leftover money was used to buy some new class books from the book fair. Thank you!
We had a wonderful pancake day! The children loved having pancake races outside on the infant playground and they enjoyed making and tasting pancakes in the craft area.
Thank you for all the fantastic story spoons you have been making, we were so impressed!! You are all very Chloe Creative. They are currently on display in the entrance hall.
We had a WONDERFUL time on Welly Walk today, we made boggle trolls in the woods. Boggle trolls are kind creatures that help us look after the woods and our homes. We will be bringing them home soon to live at home :) We collected natural materials in the woods to help make our super trolls.
It is National Storytelling Week this week, the Rainbows have enjoyed listening to lots of different stories and they have been brilliant at retelling them and saying what happened next and why. In FS2 we love reading!
We loved reading We're Going on a Bear Hunt today and we even went on a bear hunt on welly walk to find a bear of our own! We were brilliant at using our imagination and we retold the story outdoors. What a fun morning!
We look forward to a super year in 2019 working together. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and New Year.
Thank you for all the lovely cards, gifts and well wishes we received.

Welcome to our FS2 class page! Here are some of the lovely activities we have been doing over our first half term at school.
We have enjoyed exploring our woods and outdoor space during welly walk, we have been learning about Autumn.
We have been having fun doing maths in our outdoor area linked to shape and weight. We also had to work in a team like Tim and Tom.
Mrs Gordon Mrs Steele and Mrs Caudwell followed our interest of the marbles and extended our learning, we learned a marble is a sphere shape and explored spheres in the water area. We made marble ruyns indoors and outdoors too.
Today we enjoyed reading Superworm, we wrote some labels for the minibeasts in the book, they are displayed in our classrooms. We enjoyed playing with the spaghetti because we thought it looked like worms! We compared the different lengths of the spaghetti. On welly walk we 'made mud' and dug for worms. We were very Pippa Positive and enjoyed holding them carefully.
Today we came to school dressed in our pyjamas to help raise money for Children in Need! We had lots of fun!
FS2 did a fantastic job in their Harvest Assembly, we were very proud of the singing, speaking and signing.
We have LOVED celebrating and learning about Diwali in November, we were very lucky to have a visit from a parent in school who celebrates Diwali and we even received special bangles, jewels and lucky chocolate coins. We enjoyed retelling the story of Rama and Sita using props, dancing to Indian music, painting fireworks, making paper lanterns and creating Rangoli patterns in sand and chalk. Fantastic learning FS2!
As part of our People Who Help Us topic we have had a visit from a police officer, we enjoyed looking at different parts of the uniform as well as learning about the different jobs the Police do. Watch this space for more photos as we are having a visit from a fire fighter next week!
We really enjoyed our visit from the firefighters this week, we liked learning about the different parts of their uniform and looking at how the breathing apparatus works. We practised STOP DROP and ROLL in case there is ever any fire on our clothes.
We enjoyed going on an outdoor 3d shape hunt in maths recently and then we made 3d shape models. Fantastic! Can you name some of the 3d shapes we found and used?
