Well done to our our F2 children who have been working very hard every single day.
The children enjoy doing a busy job each day. We always do our best and follow our special "Clever Owl Rules."
One of our special jobs is being the "Cross Helper". We know this is a special time when we can be still and talk to God.
At the end of the day we set out our special prayer table and say thank you for our lovely day.
R.E. New Life
“Jesus’ life, death and resurrection are the central event of all human history and at the heart of faith”
Religious Education Curriculum Directory
This half term, the children in Foundation 2 will be learning about new life. They will learn about the story of the empty tomb, and learn that Jesus appeared to his disciples. The children will begin to understand the special gift of joy and peace that Jesus gave to his friends (John 20: 19-21) and can give to us as well. They will hear the story of Jesus going back to his Father and learn that one day we shall hopefully go there too.
At home, you could help your children by:
- planting an Easter garden
- looking for signs of new life
- practise the Sign of the Cross, ‘Our Father’ & ‘Hail Mary’
- encouraging them to write their own prayers.
Tuesday is our PE day. Children come to school dressed in their PE kits. Joggers or track suit bottoms are warm whilst it is chilly, also sweatshirt or hoodies over PE T-shirts and trainers.

It is important to read a little every day.
Read together every day
Reading with your child continues to be really important so keep reading lots of different books together. Most picture books will be too hard for a child of this age to read alone, but it’s good for them just to listen to a story or information book and talk about the pictures with you.
Talk about the book before you begin reading
Before reading a book together, always talk about the title, the pictures and the information on the cover (front and back). If it’s new, ask what your child thinks the book might be about. If it’s an old favourite then talk about the bits you love most! Don’t worry if some books get chosen again and again!
Read with different voices
When reading aloud use lots of expression and try different voices for different characters. Get your child to join in with bits too, such as, ‘They pulled and they pulled!’ and ‘Fee, fi, fo, fom...’. See if your child can copy you!
Ask each other questions
Talk about the stories and information books when you’ve finished reading together and ask questions. What did you like best? Why did the tiger let Floppy go? Have you ever played a trick on anybody? Get your child to ask you questions too.
Retell stories and events
Ask your child about things that happened at school or with their friends. Sometimes, after you’ve shared a story or watched a TV programme, ask your child to tell you about it. Help them by asking 2What happened first? What next? And then what?2
Why not share an eBooks together now?
Below are free, downloadable resources aimed at homeschooling. The activity sheets include simple tasks, questions, prayers and adapted scriptures. They’ll help children learn, reflect, and stand in solidarity with children around the world.
