Welcome to all of our 2020-21 F2 children and families. We are looking forward to a fun filled year. Please check the website and your child's ILD account for regular updates on our learning activities.

If you have any issues with logging into ILD can they please email the school


 

We will start the year learning "All About Me" - hopefully you have seen the teachers' All About Me videos. To help with this topic we will look at a number of books including:

    

At St George's we have a RESPECT framework, which will follow throughout the school. Each half term the children learn about different characterisitics of learning. The first characteristic is Resilience. We think about how it is important to keep trying our best, and how they can show resilience in their learning.

Alongside each Characteristic of Learning the children will also be introduced to a Learning Hero. Each Learning Hero is someone who shows our characteristic of Learning, and this will help the children to learn more about the postive characteristic.

In F2 our Learning Hero for Autumn 1 is Zog, from the Julia Donaldson book "Zog", the dragon who shows lots of resilience when learning about how to be a dragon. Zog continues to try his best in every activity, even when he does not succeed first time. We hope that understanding how Zog shows resilience will help the children to show resilience in their learning.

Throughout the year the children will be rewarded for displaying the different Characteristics of Learning with dragon scales. Once they receive 50 dragon scales they will receive a certificate from Mrs Binks in assembly.

 

We are a "Forest School" school at St George's. During the children's year in Foundation 2 they have the opporunity to walk up to top site to our "Dragon Woods".

While at Forest School the children learn about the different seasons, minibeasts, birds and much more. The children are allowed to experience nature first hand and enjoy being allowed to dig in the mud, build fires, use tools like saws and hand-drills - all under close supervision.

We hope to give each Foundation 2 class the chance to go to Forest School before we break up for Christmas. Please watch this space.

 

EYFS Framework

 

At St George’s we have taken the opportunity to become ‘Early Adopters’ of the New EYFS framework as of September 2020. The new framework is designed to:

  • Improve outcomes at 5 years old for all children
  • Improve language development for all children
  • Reduce workload for teachers and childcare workers.

In the coming months we will provide parent information sessions to enable parents to fully understand the new EYFS framework and Development Matters. In the meantime, if you wish to read more information the DfE have published the below documents:
