Cherry, Honeysuckle and Blossom Class
Phonic Superstars! 🤩
In our most recent phonic assessments Matthew, Sarah and Ellie did so well that they are now at RWInc Green book level which means they go to Year One for phonics! We are very proud of them as is Miss Maynard. They all went in her proud book and got a prize ⭐️
Santa 🎅🏽 🎄🤩
Santa Claus came to visit us!
All the children were super excited! We sang Christmas songs for him. Some of the children spoke to Santa and asked him questions. Daisy was intrigued by Santa’s beard!
All the children got a present each 🎁
Ho ho ho!! 🎅🏽
Christmas Party Day 🎅🏽🎄🥳
FS2 enjoyed party day! We dressed up, ate yummy food, played pass the parcel and danced!!
Thank you to all our parents and carers for brining in party food.
Lots of fun was had! 🥳
Today the children learnt all about Christingles and why they are important to Christians.
We made Christingles in small groups 😊
🎅🏽 EYFS Christmas Sing-a-long 🎄
12 members of staff
13 songs with actions
1 super proud Ms Rashid 🤗
The children sang and danced at each show and it was brilliant 🤩
Lots more photographs on Tapestry 🎄
Huge thank you to all our parents and carers for all the costumes and for making time to watch! 🎅🏽
We have been learning about numbers in great depth so how to recognise, count, add, subtract and subitise . This past week we have been counting using objects.
The children used jewels and buttons to count sets for numbers 0-20
We worked on counting carefully; touching each item as they say a number
Lots of practice is needed; it would be marvellous if you could encourage your child to count at every opportunity.
Chocolate raffle! 🍫
The winners were…
⭐️ Ruby Rose

We will use the money raised to buy plants and flowers for the EYFS outdoors.
Tickets can be bought in the morning or at home time
There are 3 prizes!
Wonderful Word Writing ✍🏼
The children in FS2 have been using their phonics learning to write words to match pictures.
We are so very proud of them!
We LOVE taking pictures of our children whilst they are learning in groups with adults and when they are in provision discovering how to use their adult led learning.
Unfortunately, very few of our children have been given consent by their parent/carer to have their pictures used on our blog, school website or social media
PLEASE click on this link and consent to your child’s pictures being used.
We are super proud of their achievements and are eager to share with the world!
Thank you 😊

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 🎄 🎅🏽
Christmas was welcomed into FS2 with lots of decorations and new provision!
Have a look at what we have done 🎄
We have a tree in each room! The children helped decorate the class trees 🎄
Some of the children even helped Miss Maynard to decorate her office!
The children came into school positively giddy about the snow because they wanted to be out in it with their friends! So, after phonics we got wrapped up and put on our wellies and went outside. It was magnificent!
The children had snowball fights!
Made snow angels!
Made snow castles!
The children throughly enjoyed the first snow of the season ⛄️
Children in Need!
The children came into school and wore pjs for a donation of £1!
All donations are for CIN. The children learned about the charity and some of the things they do to help people in the UK and abroad.
FS2 paid their respects on Thursday by observing the 2 minute silence at 11am
We watched two stories about the reason we mark the day each year.
The age appropriate stories were Flanders Field and Poppies. Both can be found on YouTube 😊
Above and beyond ⭐️
All our children have a football training session with Coach Jack on Tuesday. On Friday the children that have gone ‘above and beyond’ by working super hard, made amazing progress, behaved brilliantly or have been kind get to have an extra football training session ⭐️
There is lots to do whilst in our provision. The children explore and learn in lots of areas. Here is a small sample of our children in the provision!
Celebrating our children’s work ⭐️
We have put lots of new displays up inside and around FS2. We love showing off our children’s work! Make sure to have a look when you come to parents evening 😊
Ms Rashid’s absolute favourite is the staff board; it’s fabulous to see how our children see us 💗
EYFS Family Reading Workshop 📚
We welcomed our parents into FS2 for the our first reading workshop. Some of the children brought in their favourite books from home whilst others read some of our special story time books.
It was a brilliant morning, thank you to all the parents/carers that came 😊
Goldilocks birthday party 🥳
To finish off our learning for Goldilocks and The Three Bears we helped Goldilocks with the food for her party that Baby Bear was invited too.
We learned how to make jelly, chocolate milk and jam sandwiches. We wrote the instructions down and sent them to Goldilocks. We’ve been super busy bees 🐝
Making jam sandwiches
Making chocolate milk
We have been watching Pantasaurus and learning how to keep our bodies safe.
The children have learnt that their bodies belong only to them, their private parts are covered by pants and if someone wants to see or touch under your pants we say “No!” and tell an safe adult.
You can watch the video here:
🦠 Germs! 🦠
We have been learning about keeping ourselves healthy by washing germs away.
We did the glitter experiment! We used glitter on our hands to represent germs. The children then shooky hands with each other and saw that the glitter spread just like germs do.
We learnt that if you sing the happy birthday song twice whilst washing your hands with soap and water, almost all the germs are washed away.
We are super excited to tell you that our children in FS2 have started their Phonics learning journey with Read Write Inc!
The children have started learning the Set 1 sounds
Please support us at home by completing the phonics homework every week
Thank you 😊
My family 💗
We are learning about families! The children are talking about their families, other children’s families and thinking about what makes a family.
Lots of learning around different families and even the Royal Family!
Every child has drawn their own family, can you spot the mummy with a baby in her tummy? 😀
In September 2021 the EYFS Reception Baseline became statutory, which means all the children have worked 1:1 with an adult in FS2 to complete a set number of questions.
The children point, listen, speak and count to answer questions.
We are super proud of our children for being so grown up about answering these question 😍

This is Coach Jack!
He is a football coach from Manchester City Football Club.
He will be with us all year. All the children will work with him on a Tuesday afternoon and some of the children who have gone ‘Above and Beyond!’ In their learning or behaviour will get to work with him on a Friday too ⚽️
In EYFS we use the Tapestry app to share what we are doing in school and invite parents to do the same by uploading their own photos snd observations about what they’ve been doing at home with their child.

We will send you a link to access and create an account

Huge welcome to all our children, parents and carers to FS2!
