2019- 2020

Welcome to Whiston Junior and Infant School and Foundation Two. 

We have planned lots of exciting and challenging learning experiences for the FS2 children this school year.

The long-term plan overview will show you what learning projects and enquiry questions we aim to cover over the course of the year. We have also included brief details of visits, visitors and WOW days in school.

See below for the overview for FS2 2019-2020

Autumn 2019

Autumn 1

We would like to welcome our new children and families to Whiston and hope you have had an enjoyable summer break.

Starting school is a very exciting time but we appreciate it can be rather daunting as well, so if you have any questions please don't hesitate to speak to a member of the FS2 team.

Our first topic is “Who am I?” and we will be talking about what makes us all individual and special and our likes and dislikes. The children will be creating self-portraits and family pictures and talking about family life and special events.

 We will read familiar stories linked to families such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Billy Goats Gruff and Little Red Riding Hood.

We will learn about houses and homes and will read the story of the Three Little Pigs to help us to learn about the different materials houses can be made from.

We will also learn about Autumn by going on an Autumn walk around the school grounds and making collections of things we find on the ground. We will make Autumn pictures using what we have collected, Autumn threading with leaves and Autumn writing and drawing.

We also plan from the interests of the children and use our observations of the children's learning to inform planning.
