Reception (F2)

Welcome to F2


Hello F2 and your families!


It is half-term this week but still not the normal week of holiday we are used to. We have still uploaded a new home learning activity menu to support you with some ideas you can use for activities through the week.


We have taken a break this week away from the life cycle of the caterpillar and butterfly, to learn about Ramadan and Eid. If you need a paper copy of the menu and the week's printed resources, pop into the school office area and collect a set from the home learning table.


We wish 'Eid Mubarak' to all our families who are celebrating this special time. We hope you all enjoy the activities we have suggested to learn about this important time in the Islamic calendar. 


As it is half-term, there will be no new phonics videos this week. All of the previous video links will stay on the website, so if you haven't started watching yet, don't worry you can still access all of them. The first video where we teach a new sound is dated Monday 4th May. It is important to watch the videos in order from the first, as the sounds learned get revisited each day.


We'll look forward to seeing your photos this week.


Take care of yourselves,

Miss Trivett, Mrs Grout & Mrs Turner


F2 Home Learning


The nature of how we learn in the Foundation Stage means that much of our learning is practical and play based. This will be reflected in the ideas and activities that we will be providing for home learning. We will do our best to provide ideas and activities that can be carried out with materials and things you can easily find at home. 

We will provide some ideas and activities that you can choose from to carry out on a daily basis in order to practise learning and skills that we have taught in school. We will also be providing a weekly sheet of ideas and activities that will be based on what we would have been teaching over the coming weeks. 

Please check in here every week for the latest updates.

What are we learning?


Supporting learning at home


Phonics practice

Each week we learn 4 new sounds in class. We send home a sheet so that you are aware what is being taught in class each week. Please use the ideas in this sheet to support your child at home.

If you ever misplace one of the weekly sheets, please find a copy in this section of our year group web page. 


Phonics Home Learning

Please find below all the phonics home learning sheets we have sent home this year.

These detail the letter sounds that have been learnt and the correct letter formation for handwriting. They also contain ideas for practising reading and writing simple words.

At this point in the term the children have learnt all the sounds represented by all the letters of the alphabet plus 4 consonant digraphs.

We will be moving onto learning the next set of sounds in the Summer Term and as we learn each new set we will again send home a sheet that you can use to support your child at home.
