2017 - 18
Welcome to Whiston Junior and Infant School and Foundation Two.
We would like to welcome our new children and families to Whiston and hope you have had an enjoyable summer break.
Starting school is an 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 make us all individual and special and their likes and dislikes. The children will be creating self-portraits and family pictures of their family members and talk 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 go on a walk around the local area of Whiston to look at the different buildings people live in. We 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 doing some Autumn writing and drawing.
We also plan from the interests of the children and use our observations of the children to inform planning.
