Over the year we will be covering different themes in the classroom including Ourselves, Heroes, The World, Plants, Animals and different festivals and celebrations. As we do our planning we will add it below so that you can see what your child will be  learning.

We will also be learning phonics  everyday and this planning will also be added below. In phonics we teach the children letter sounds and not letter names. Letter names are taught later in the year. We also teach the children to write in lower case letters and not capitals.

We have now taught all of the sounds for FS2 and will be recapping Phase 3 until the end of the year.

Our next theme will start after the half term break and will be Animals
