Welcome to Foundation Stage 2

 

Our teacher is Miss Kavanagh

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Whalley and Miss Bennett. 



We are very much looking forward to inviting parents and carers into class - look out for your invite coming soon.
 

We learn through 7 areas of play including Physical Development, Communication and Language and Personal, Social and Health Education.

The children’s interests and learning preferences will be at the heart of the experiences we provide.

Prime Areas of Learning

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT

The children will develop their control through dance and role play based on a range of traditional stories. ‘Wake & Shake’ will be used throughout the children’s week to improve co-ordination, rhythm and fitness.

COMMUNICATION & LANGUAGE

 Listening to a range of stories and engaging in role play will aid the children in developing their skills of communication and language.

PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The curriculum will be tailored to the specific needs of the children in our care.  Easch child develops at their own rate and will have unique strengths.  We will model and discuss a range of social and emotional issues to support all children in becoming well-rounded citizens.

Specific Areas of Learning

MATHEMATICS

Key mathematical skills will be taught and reinforced through daily rhymes, songs and small group teaching.

LITERACY DEVELOPMENT

Exploring a range of traditional stories will help children develop a love of stories. Discussing and re-enacting traditional plots will later support each child to become an effective speaker and writer. Daily phonics lessons will teach children how to read and write.

UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD

The children will be aided to understand the world through a variety of hands on experiences. For example they will bake a ginger bread man to accompany the telling of the story, followed by finding out where in the world ginger is grown.

A weekly lesson will be delivered to teach key skills in using a range of technologies, for example a digital camera, a CD player and a computer.

EXPRESSIVE ARTS & DESIGN

The children will have daily access to a range of materials which they can use to create paintings, drawings and 3D models. Their imagination will be exercised through role play, storytelling, dance and art.
