Foundation Stage 2

Mrs Carr - FSClass Teacher  

 My name is Mrs Carr. I have been teaching the lovely children of Kingston Park Academy for four years. 

I really enjoy working at Kingston Park as no two days are the same! Every day my class make me smile by saying something funny or making me really proud of their achievements.

In my class I have excellent artists, story tellers, mathematicians and designers- as well as a few soap stars and X-factor finalists! We all celebrate each others indivduality and compliment each other with our different skills and personalities. When I am not at school I enjoying going on holiday and seeing different places.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mrs Barnes - Foundation Teaching Assistant

Hi my name is Mrs Barnes. I have worked at Kingston for 24 years.  I love my job as it is very exciting and different every day. I have a dog called Jess and you may sometimes see me walking her if you drive into town.

I work in Foundation 2 and I think our school is a lovely place to work as we all care about each other.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topics


'Why do you love me so much?'

 

 

Our topic this term is focused on children learning about themselves and their relationship with others. They will learn about their emotions and feelings. They will also learn and talk about their strengths and what makes them special and unique. Children will explore the role of the family and other carers and how their family might be different from others. Children will begin to understand about how they grow and change and will be using their senses to explore our environment.


 

 

 

 

PE Sessions

We have PE every Thursday. Please send your PE kit into school and we will keep it here until half term. Please ensure EVERY item of clothing is labelled as sometimes we all get a little bit muddled about what belongs to who.

PE Kit – Blue / black shorts or jogging bottoms, white t-shirt, pumps.

Class Rules/Other things parents may need to know

In Foundation 2 we are learning to be independent – please help us to do this by letting us take off and put on our own shoes and coats when we come into class.

Support us in finding our name card but let us have a go at doing it by ourselves- it’s the best way for us to learn!

We are trying really hard to take responsibility for our learning so please help us to have a go at our morning work – even when we make mistakes we are learning!

Every morning we need to put our reading record and reading book in the box and our book bag in the trolley.

Please write our names in all of our clothes, shoes and pumps so that if we do loose them we can be reunited with them again.

In Foundation 2 we follow our school rules – kind hands, kind feet and kind words.. We work hard and try our best in all areas of our learning – even if we find it a little bit tricky.

We also like to be good friends and take care of each other.

In Foundation 2 we are good listeners and look at people when they are talking to us.

If we have a problem we try to sort it out by ourselves first then go and see a teacher.
