FS2 latest news and letters
Celebrating Chinese New Year
Spring 2 begins with the children in FS2 learning about how Chinese New Year is celebrated. They will have their own Chinese Banquet on Thursday 22nd February where they will have the opportunity to taste different Chinese foods. They may even have a go at eating with chopsticks!! Please make sure that you have returned the consent form we sent out before the half term break regarding food allergies.
The Spring term 1 is only 5 weeks so we have lots of interesting learning challenges for the children planned linked to the topic of winter and Emergency 999.
We would like to introduce a new member of the FS2 team who will be working with your child(ren) and the other members of the FS2 team. Her name is Miss Thompson and she is a full time Teaching Assistant. We are all really pleased to welcome her to our Whiston family and hope she will settle into school life quickly and easily.
European Cultural Week
The first week of Autumn 2 term is the whole school European Cultural Week.
The children in FS2 will be learning about Italy and finding out what different foods Italian people eat.
On the Tuesday, FS2 will be making their own vegetarian pizzas using a variety of fruits and vegetables, cooking them and tasting them!! Thank you to parents for returning the allergy letter before the half term break.
