Throughout their year in F2 we assess the children against Development Matters. At the end of their year in F2 we assess the children against the 7 Early Learning Goals, where they will be either Emerging, Expected or Exceeding. 

Topic’s we will be covering in F2 this year:


Autumn 1 - My Life!


Our focus will be on what makes us special, our family, our pets and our home.


Autumn 2 - Snowballs!


Our focus will be learning about Winter; what happens to the weather, animals and all about CHRISTMAS!


Spring 1 - WOW!


Our focus will be learning about fairy tales, dragons, dinosaurs and superheroes. We will also learn about The Queen.


Spring 2 - We Love Nature!


Our focus will be learning about Spring; the weather, growing flowers, animals and EASTER!


Summer 1 - Little Scientists!


Our focus will be about the lifecycles of different animals and minibeasts.


Summer 2 - Bright and Sunny!


Our focus will be Summer; holidays, the seaside, under the sea and pirates!

P.E -


Our PE day is on a Monday. Your child has been provided with a school PE bag with labelled shorts and a T shirt. This is to be kept in school during term time and will be returned home during the holidays to be washed. Please ensure your child brings named PE pumps into school to put in their PE bag.


Homework -


Homework will be given out each Friday and will need to be returned by Wednesday at the latest. We have a homework chart in school to monitor completion of homework. You can support your child with their homework but your child is to complete the activity themselves.


Please ensure homework books are kept in good condition.


Reading -

Your child has been provided with a reading book and a reading diary. Please read to your child every night at home and record this in their reading diary. 'Reading miles' with your child will really support their reading development.

We love to read! Have a look at the exciting things we do to practice our reading!
