Foundation Stage 2

Hello everybody and welcome to Wheeler!

We are so excited and happy to welcome our new children to Green and Blue Base after the Summer holidays. We can’t wait for the exciting things we have planned!

The adults in Green Base this year are: Mrs Day and Mrs Dunhill

The adults in Blue Base this year are: Mrs Wellington and Miss Bower

Learning outside is fun and effective and even better when it is warm and the sun is shining. With this in mind, please remember to send your child with a full water bottle every day, sun cream and a sun hat when it is hot. However as we are heading in to the Autumn months please ensure your child has a warm coat and a pair of wellies for those wet days.

Please ensure your child brings their book bag to school every day and remember to check it regularly for any letters or newsletters that may have been sent home.

We will be basing our learning on the story of The Colour Monster and Owl Babies. Our topic is ‘Fabulous Feelings’. We will be learning all about the different types of emotions and people who help us. We will be finding out about the different types of jobs such as: doctors, nurses, police officer etc.

We will spend at least half of each day outside, where the children will be enjoying our newly upgraded digging and construction areas.

We will be helping your children learn by following their interests and developing their play, even though this may deviate from our plans.

Homework will be sent home every Friday to reflect what the children have been learning in school, and to let you know what your child has been learning in school (we know how many of them come home and claim to have done nothing!).

The children will be practising their counting skills, learning how to write their name and learning letter sounds through Phonics sessions to help them read.

We really appreciate your voluntary weekly £1 donations to our Foundation Fund, it makes a great difference to the resources and experiences we can provide; thank you for giving when you can.

If you have any questions, please speak to a member of our lovely Blue Base and Green Base staff, we are always happy to help.

Mrs Day and Mrs Wellington 😊
