Zebra Class - Foundation Stage 2
Welcome to Foundation Stage 2!
In Zebra Class this year, we are very lucky to have 30 fantastic children. There will be some amazing staff supporting us to learn, grow and thrive throughout our time as Zebra’s – Miss Brownson, Ms Calvert and Miss Butterfield who will be covering Miss Brownson's maternity leave. Our provision is highly inspiring and provides children with rich learning opportunities and experiences linked to a main theme. Each half term we will be sending a topic web home with details about what the children are going to be learning, and a home learning web which will provide children with extended learning opportunities.
This half term’s learning will be all about ‘All about Us’. The children will be learning lots of new and exciting information about their bodies and how to stay healthy! We will also be talking about our likes, dislikes and what makes us special. We will also be celebrating Harvest festival and learning all about Autumn. We will be reading a variety of books to our topic such as Owl Babies, Funny Bones, The Rainbow Fish, The Scarecrows Wedding and Monkey Puzzle.
This half term we will be beginning to develop our herb garden and will also be growing rhubarb! We plan to make a Harvest soup and homemade bread too.
Our staff strongly believe that it is important for parents to contribute to their child’s learning and development. Follow us on Twitter @SunnyfieldsEYFS for regular updates throughout the day. We also use an app called ‘Evidence Me’ which allows you to share amazing moments that you have at home with us. We really do enjoy seeing what the children get up too and it is a vital part of your child’s journey here in Nursery and Reception.
At Sunnyfields, we spend a lot of time developing our Sunny Six Skills, within the EYFS these are particularly important as we strongly believe each child should be confident and independent within their own learning journey.
Zebra Class is a place where children feel safe and secure. We pride ourselves as one team. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate in coming to see us.
Wishing all the children an amazing start to their journey at Sunnyfields!
