We will be learning to show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements, move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space, know the importance of physical activity and a healthy diet for good health, talk about ways to keep healthy and safe and successfully manage our own basic hygiene and personal needs.
We will be learning to use our phonics knowledge to read regular and tricky words accurately aloud and to help us understand what we have read, write sentences using our tricky words and phonics to segment each word, while remembering to use finger spaces, capital letters and full stops in sentences.

Expressive Arts and Design:
We will be learning to sing songs, make music and dance, and experiment with ways of changing them, safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques and represent our own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role play and stories.
Outdoor learning is an incredibly big part of FS2. Please make sure that your child has a jumper, wellies, sun hat and a waterproof coat in school every day.
Please ensure that your child is heard reading at least three times a week and remember to sign the reading diary each time you read with your child.
Please use your child’s tricky word flash cards and help them learn how to read and spell each word.
