DYNAMIC DRAGONS FS2O
Hello, and Welcome to Foundation Stage 2, The Dynamic Dragons!
Foundation Leader/Assistant Head and Class Teacher: Mrs. Otter
Teaching Assistant: Mrs J Cartwright.
In Foundation, we want all children to succeed and be happy and safe both inside and outside of the classroom. Learning starts as soon as children walk through the doors! We open up at 8.45am and parents and carers are welcomed and encouraged to stay and take part in a short morning task, including name writing, letter formation, reading, number challenges and craft activities. Just before 9.00a.m, children are called to the carpet for the register and exciting activities begin!
Class Themes and Topics
In Foundation Stage, all learners experience a broad, balanced and varied curriculum, which is relevant to their stage of development. Thoughtfully planned, child-centred topics change from half term to half term, and are used as a vehicle to teach the whole EYFS curriculum. This year, our topics include:
Autumn 1 – ‘All about Ourselves, Houses and Homes, Scarecrows and Traditional tales and Stories with Familiar Settings.’
Autumn 2 – Autumn walks, Farms and Farm Animals, Celebrations and Festivals, Hanukkah, Eid, Christmas
Spring 1 – Chinese New Year, Arctic animals and Fantasy Worlds including Princess and Dragons!
Spring 2 – Pancake day, Mr Wolf’s Pancakes, Handa’s Surprise, African Safari, Tiger who came to tea and Easter.
Summer 1 – Life-cycles and Habitats, Growth, Minibeasts, Sunflowers, Jasper’s Beanstalk and the Enormous Turnip.
Summer 2 – ‘Oh we do like to be beside the seaside…’ (including Journeys, Transport and Pirates!). Visit to Cleethorpes, and Cleethorpes Light Railway.
