Cherry, Honeysuckle and Blossom Class
We woke up to snow this morning. Miss Toshkazi got very excited and made two snowmen!
What do you think?
Have you played in the snow? Share any photos on Tapestry with us!
Take care, keep safe xx
Rainbow Day 🌈 ❤️
We celebrated all the Heroes that have been keeping us safe since March 2020. The children wore bright, colourful clothing and joined in with lots of rainbow making!
Miss Pickering made a brilliant messy play tray full of coloured rice!
Lots of fun was had both at school and home!
All the FS2 staff wish all our children and their families merry Christmas and a very happy new year!
FS2 Christmas Party 🎄
We had a brilliant time at our party! We made reindeer food and played lots of games including ‘Pass the Parcel’ and musical statues. We ate yummy party food and had THE best visitor ever...Santa! 🎅🏽
Lots of fun was had ❤️
Bye bye Mrs Newton!
After 27 years Mrs Newton our business manager is retiring. Blossom Class went and sang a Christmas song for her, she seemed to enjoy it!
We are said to see her go but wish her a long, happy and healthy retirement with Mr Newton ❤️
Christmas Lunch 🎄
The children enjoyed a festive lunch in the hall. They had all the traditional foods like turkey, sprouts and roast potatoes with lashings of gravy!
A huge thank you to our Dinner ladies who have made 100s of sandwiches this term and served us with hot meals!
Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday 11th December we had Christmas Jumper day. All the school community paid £1 each to wear their jumper. All the money collected will be donated to Save The Children.
Here are some of the children in their festive outfits!
A visit from Pippa!
Pippa is our school dog. Miss Maynard brought her to FS2 for a visit. The children were delighted and keen to pat her.
On Friday 27th November we had our first birthday afternoon. We danced, played party games like musical bumps and New Moston X Factor!
Miss Maynard bought us all a cake and mini chocolate bar.
We read two birthday stories and one was about our favourite cartoon character; Peppa Pig!
We are looking forward to December’s birthday afternoon which will be on
Friday 18th December.
On Tapestry in our observations of the children we often use words that are not commonly used outside of a school setting.
We have just uploaded an item on Tapestry for every child’s parent/carer that is a Jargon Buster! It gives an explanation of some of the words we commonly use in observations.
Hope it helps!
Children In Need
On Friday 13th November all the children wore pjs, bought special badges and wristbands all to raise money for this half terms charity.
In FS2 we joined in with Joe Wicks special CIN workouts.
Lots of fun was had by all!
The Gruffalo came to visit us, we had to keep our distance because of Covid and because he was super hungry!
The children bravely asked him questions using the question starter words we have been learning to use what ask questions.
These words are:
This week we have been learning all about Diwali. We’ve learnt why it is celebrated and how it is celebrated.
Diwali is celebrated to remember the time Ram and Sita were welcomed back after Raven was beaten. We read the story and watched it too.
We then learnt how Diwali is celebrated with Dipal. Dipal showed us how houses are decorated, what happens at the Hindu temple, what people wear and the foods that are eaten
Room on the Broom
This week we have been reading Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. We have learnt she likes to use rhyming words in her stories. The children have been Rhyming Detectives and been on the lookout for rhyming words and been practising rhyming strings which is saying a group of words that rhyme, quickly one after the other.
The children have been writing Rhyming Spells. The adults have been so pleased with how well the children have been applying their developing phonic knowledge when writing
Here is a small selection...
Aliens Love Underpants!
The children came in on Monday to find underpants everywhere in FS2! The children and the adults thought it strange (and funny!) but we discovered that the Aliens had come to school to take all our spare underpants!
Drop off and pick up
After listening carefully to feedback from parents and carers the procedures for drop off in the morning have changed. ONE parent/carer can now come on to the school grounds at the start of the day with their child. You can walk them upto their class door.
The start time for FS2 is 9am and home time is 3.05pm
The letter from our Headteacher about these changes can be found below.
Thank you for your continued support 😊
As a Manchester Healthy School we are committed to supporting our children to be happy and healthy. The policies below are for Packed Lunches and Food in School.

I’m super pleased to tell you that FS2 will be having football training with MCFC this year.
Honeysuckle and Cherry class will have training on Tuesday and Blossom class on Friday.
The children will not need a PE kit till after Christmas. They will do training in their uniform in the Autumn term but please send your child in with TRAINERS (any colour is fine!) only for the day they have training.
Thank you 😊
Keep safe, take care!
