Welcome to our FS2 Bears class page.


Library Books

Our Library day is on a Monday.

We will change Library books once per fortnight as we would like you to practice the RWI sound cards daily at home. Please complete a task in your child’s library journal so we see you have shared the book together and we can reward all their efforts at home.


Read, Write Inc.

Please use the Read, Write Inc sound cards provided with your child daily. FS2 children need to know the first 16 sounds (m, a, s, d, t, i, n, p, g, o, c, k, u, b, f, e) by October half-term. You can listen how to say the pure sounds here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXcabDUg7Q


Play dough, Snack and Baking

A weekly contribution of £1 helps us ensure that we have fresh play dough each week and a variety of food for snack and baking, including hot chocolate for the forest. 



Our PE day is Wednesday. Children can leave their PE bags on their pegs and we will send them home each half-term.


Fresh Air Friday

Our forest day is Friday. Please send children dressed in clothing ready for the forest. We will inform you if there is a change to our forest time depending on our curriculum. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for regular updates.


Poetry Basket

We use an online course of thirty-six videos containing poems with actions, these include many lesser-known children's rhymes from anonymous authors and support children's reading skills. If you do not already have a Poetry Basket account ask for our discount code so you can access the resources for free using the link below.

"If children know eight nursery rhymes by heart, by the time they are four years old, they're usually among the best readers by the time they are eight."
