Hello and welcome to FS2 Wrens!
Welcome back to our first term of the summer.
We are looking forward to spending more time in our outdoor area now the weather is getting better. We have been looking at all the changes happening in the school grounds. We are hoping that some birds are going to make a nest in our new birdbox.
We are always very busy in Sparrows and Wrens, and we are always learning! We learn through carefully planned child initiated play activities, short teacher led carpet times, and small group activities that are aimed at each child's individual abilities. Our children access both indoor and outdoor child initiated learning opportunities that enable them to grow, gain independence and develop as individuals.
Every day begins with an adult led phonics carpet session, this is where we think about letter sounds and how to read and write! We also have an adult led maths carpet session, and an adult led literacy carpet session where we focus on a variety of texts.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum we plan and teach activities and experiences for children to learn across seven main areas of learning:
3 Prime areas of learning
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional development
4 Specific areas of learning
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Please see the Sparrow class link as we work together as a unit.
Wow what a busy start to the new term. We have had an amazing morning meeting the owls and taking turns to hold and stroke them. Barny the Barn Owl loved flying around the hall and sitting on the speakers. (Please scroll down to see the photographs of us holding the owls)
We are taking part in the Nursery Rhyme challenge and have been singing lots of new and old rhymes, including Humpty Dumpty.
We have nearly finished our Set 1 'Read Write Inc' sounds and it is showing! The children are making fantastic progress with the sounds, and are now beginning to blend and segment, to read, and spell! Wonderful work keep it up!
