Planning in FS2
Over the year we will be covering different topics in the classroom using the Cornerstones curriculum. Please see the long term plan below for which topics we are doing each half term. We cover different festivals and celebrations where appropriate and talk about how things are changing.
We have phonics lessons everyday and the planning will be added below. During the first half term phonics is taught in small groups based on the needs of individual children.
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 will be learning sight words each week. These are words that you do not sound out but just, 'See the word, say the word'. Please help your child to learn the words that they will bring home each week.
