Autumn 1 in F2

Sunday 10 Sep 2023 15:51pm

A very warm welcome to Ecclesfield and your child’s first year of school! We are very excited to get to know you properly and for all of the exciting things we have planned. We hope you are looking forward to starting school too!

Our topic this term is ‘I wonder…who is special’. We will spend lots of time getting to know each other, building relationships and talking about our families.

We will start our daily phonics looking at phase 2 sounds to help us begin our reading and writing journey. We will also start learning new harder to read and spell words which you will be able to practice at home too!

In maths, we will be exploring, securing and deepening our understanding of numbers 1-3. We will be using language to compare, count and reason with number, talking about maths and what we notice.

We will be launching Tapestry with you for you to see what your children are enjoying in school; a letter will be sent out to you with further details soon.


  • PE days: Both Lion and Tiger classes have PE on Tuesday and Friday. On these days, your child will need to wear their PE kits.
  • Your child needs to bring their book bag to school every day. A letter will be sent out shortly inviting you to a Phonics, Reading and Writing workshop with your child’s class teacher. Please look out for this! We will support you with home reading and update you with important information about book changes during this workshop.
  • Your child needs a waterproof coat and a water bottle in school everyday.
  • Please make sure all your child’s belongings are clearly labelled with their name to avoid personal belongings becoming lost.

Thank you for your support; we can’t wait to be a part of your child’s learning journey this year!

Any questions at any time, please just ask

Mrs Nicklin, Miss Leach and Miss Pilling
