Learning for life with Jesus


Foundation Stage 2 Class

Mrs. Swift



Hi everyone,


Well, what a wonderful start to life at 'big school'!


All of our new boys and girls have all settled in well and they are enjoying our first topic 'What makes me incredible?' We have been learning all of our school rules and routines, and we are making lots of new friends.


I'm sure we are going to have a brilliant term in Foundation Stage 2 and I look forward to having lots of fun learning together.



If you have any additional questions, please catch me at the end of the day or arrange an appointment through the office.


You can also contact me through the class email:

Weekly timetable

What are we learning this term?



This term, we will be enjoying a wide range of fiction and non- fiction texts linked to our own experiences and to our autumn 1 topic - What makes me incredible? and our autumn 2 topic - Why do we celebrate? We will enjoy listening to and discussing stories together; exploring pattern and rhyme within texts and then using these patterns in our own story retelling.




In autumn term 1, we are learning to how to read some phase 2 sounds before learning how to blend and segment orally. In autumn term 2, we will blend sounds into words, so that we can read short words made up of known letter– sound correspondences. 


Reception tricky words to read, write and spell

We will read a few common exception words matched to our school's phonic programme.



We will learn how to write our names, letters, CVC's and lists.



Our maths units this term are; 'Just like me',  'It's me, 1,2,3!' and 'Light and Dark'. We will be learning all about numbers and their representations, learn how to count and compare as well as finding one more and one less. We will sort and match numbers and objects and learn shapes and their properties.



The learning question for our autumn 1 topic is; 'What makes me incredible?' and our Autumn 2 topic learning question  is; 'Why do we celebrate?'


For our RE we will be exploring the learning questions:

1. Why is the word God so important to Christians?

2. Why do Christians perform nativity plays at Christmas?


Finally, in ICT our learning question is 'How do I make a computer work?'
