Term 2


Our topic for Term 2 is The Gruffalo'S Child. After a brief settling in period we will explore the story and link it to all other areas of the EYFS curriculum. Please see the term 2 topic overview for more information. There will be lots of outdoor learning and Forest School activities taking place, so please ensure that you bring in a pair of Wellington boots, some waterproof clothing and a change of clothes for your child. These items can be kept in school, and will be returned before the half term breaks if required. 


The children will also be busy with Christmas crafts, as well as getting ready to be the chorus in our FS Nativity. More information will be given soon regarding character list and costumes. 





Welcome to the FS1 page.


Our class topic for Term 1 will be Under the Sea which will commence after a brief settling in period.

This is wonderful topic which is jam packed with exciting learning opportunities. Children will participate in a variety of creative and sensory learning experiences:

  • water play
  • sand play
  • bubble play
  • cookery
  • paint mixing
  • colour hunts
  • problem solving
  • science experiments
  • puppet theatre and storytelling


This will be a term full of fun and learning. Please feel free to have a look at the document below which breaks down the topic further and contact me with any questions or suggestions.



****Please Note****


Every week the children will be exposed to outdoor learning experiences and Forest School style activities, therefore it is important that your child has at least one change of clothes/some lightweight waterproof clothing and a pair of wellington boots. This items need to stay in school and may be sent home at half terms if required. Please ensure that waterproofs and wellington boots are named.


Many thanks
