Welcome toThrybergh Fullerton C of E Primary Academy


Welcome to the Spring Term in FS2 with

Mrs. Lowry, Mrs. Whitehead-Price, Mrs Wootton & Mrs Bentley.



I would like to offer a warm welcome back after the Christmas holidays and take this chance to wish you all a very happy New Year!


This term we will be learning all about farms with our topic, “Do Cows Drink Milk?”   The children will be thinking about questions they want to find the answers to, as well as learning how we can use non-fiction books and the internet to find these answers.  Ask them for facts about animals found on a farm!  See our knowledge organiser for our top ten key facts we will be learning.


The children are always enthusiastic and ready to learn new things.  The support you give both the children and school are greatly appreciated and essential for your child to succeed.  It is with this support that children really excel and achieve their full potential.     


Over the next few weeks the children will be learning all about non-fiction books, as well as the following stories: Little red hen, Rosie’s walk and farmer Duck.   In addition we will also learn about traditions celebrated throughout this time of year: Chinese New Year, Mother’s Day and Easter.  They will be making models, drawing pictures, tasting Chinese food, writing stories and much more.  


After half term, the children will start to bring home a small amount of maths homework every week, this will be something you can do together to improve the children’s basic counting skills.   The children are still expected to read at home four times a week.  Thank you to everyone who has done this, please remember to write in your child’s  reading diaries if you listen to your child read, as they are rewarded in school for reading at home.    The gradual build up of homework is intended to make a smoother transition into year one next year.


Just a few reminders: 

  • Thank you to all of you who have been returning book bags every day.  This is really important as children’s book bags are checked regularly and new letters will always be put in these bags.  Please check your child’s book bag every day for new letters and homework activities.  
  • Children will always have 2 new reading books every week.  One book which is matched to the phonics we have learnt in school and there for them to read to you several times throughout the week to develop fluency.  The second book they have chosen is to read with you together for pleasure.   It is so important that this is carried out at home, as reading is fundamental to all we do in school and in further life.  The pace of education is so fast and children really do need lots of practise (little and often!) in order to maintain this pace.  Thank you to all of you who have been learning the tricky words with your children and reading with them, it really has made a big difference to their progress.
  • Please ensure all children have a change of indoor and outdoor shoes - the weather has become much wetter and they really need a pair of indoor shoes, especially as we access the outdoor area every day.  Thank you to those of you who have done this and labelled all their shoes.
  • PE is once again on a Thursday, although it is best to have kits in school Monday to Friday if possible to accommodate last minute changes.    The children will be getting changed for PE this term so it is essential they have their kits in school.  (Black shorts / leggings and a white T shirt.)


Once again, thank you to all of you for helping your children settle so well last term, and for supporting us and them in their learning.
