Autumn Term


What a busy and exciting few weeks we have had so far! Mrs Lidster, Miss Markham and I have loved getting to know the children and finding out what they like to do.



This half term our focus book is Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, which we will be reading as a class and using as a basis for some of our learning. You may also like to read the following books which form part of this half term’s ‘must reads’: Gruffalo and Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson, The Little Red Hen by Margot Zemach, Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen.


Learning at Home


We do not set homework in FS2 but we do like to offer parents and carers some suggested activities to support our current learning. These are completely optional and do not need to be brought into school if completed. Remember that the best way to support your child at this stage is by reading together and there will be lots of other ideas at our upcoming Phonics and Maths Workshops.

Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds (British English)

Listen to the 42 letter sounds of Jolly Phonics, spoken in British English. Each letter sound is clearly spoken twice, before an example word is given.


Actions and songs to help your child learn the letter sounds.
