Summer 2

Welcome back to your final half-term in FS2! 


Now that the weather is getting much warmer, please bring sun cream (that you can apply yourself), as well as a hat and water bottle, all with your name on.

Remember to bring your reading folder with your reading book and reading record inside everyday.

Library books will be changed on Fridays!



Our PE day is now Thursday!

This half term, we are really lucky to have a PE coach to teach us lots of new skills, every Thursday!

On Thursday, come to school in your PE kit ( blue, black or grey shorts/joggers/ leggings, a white polo shirt or t-shirt, trainers)

This half-term our learning will be based around the question 'What is sport?'

We will be learning about a range of different sports and sporting events such as Euro 2021, the Olympics and Paralympics!

Home Learning, if you are self-isolating


Please listen to your child read at least 3 times per week and record each read in their reading record with a short comment of how they go on.

In your child's reading record you will find guidance of what to work on and look for, matched to their book phase.


Please also help your child to practise the letter sounds and tricky word cards, that are in their reading folder.


Reading Snake 

This half term, we are starting a new reading reward scheme. Every child will have the reading snake, below, in their reading record.

Reading records will be checked weekly and reads will be rewarded with a stamp.

If children complete the snake, by maintaining 3 reads per week for the half term, they will receive a special prize from Mrs Barnston!


Check out our Positive Pants!


We now have a 'Positive Pants!' display in our classroom where we are displaying lots of positive things that children have done both at school and home.

We would love to hear from you the positive things that your child has been doing at home. For example, being a good friend, helping a sibling, learning to ride their bike, helping to wash the car, wash the pots or cook dinner.


Please share on Tapestry the positive things that your child has been doing so that we can celebrate these at school too!


We look forward to seeing your Tapestry posts!

Wellbeing activities













Pre-cursive letter formation

At Intake Farm we use cursive writing. We start in the Foundation Stage, using pre-cursive letter formation. This helps children to start all letters from the line and prepares children for joining letters later on.


Please use the rhymes on the document to help your child to practise forming letters correctly. 

Remember tricky words are words that we cannot sound out, we have to learn to recognise them by sight!



The following activities are in the attached booklet below:

  • Sing the alphabet
  • Practise saying the names and sound of the letters and  reading the tricky words that we have learned so far
  • Say the name and sound of our new letter 'w'
  • Listen to the 'w' Jolly Phonics song
  • What starts with a 'v' sound?
  • Read the alien words


Follow-up task

Practise writing 'w' on the letter formation page, on paper or in the SNOW!

Watch Alphablocks Phonics - Learn to Read | The Letter 'W' - YouTube



Sing 'When Goldilocks went to the house of the bears'

Recap the evidence found in the Three Bears' Cottage


Write a Crime Report describing the evidence found.

For an extra challenge write a statement from the witnesses (what did the bears see?)


Remember to write one word at a time. Sound the words out and write each of the sounds that you hear (it doesn't have to be spelled correctly). You can use the sound mat to find the right letters.



Please upload pictures of all of your work to Tapestry, we can't wait to see what you have been doing!

Some tasks are worksheets, however they can easily be completed by looking at them on the screen and doing the task with a pencil and paper, if you are unable to print them!
