Foundation Stage 2- Lynx Class
Welcome to our class website.
Our class teachers are Miss Blagden and Mrs Bradley and our Teaching Assistant is called Mrs Duffty.
Our class mascot is Boris Bear. Each week Boris chooses someone to go home with on a Friday. Every Monday, we enjoy finding out about Boris Bear’s adventures by sharing his diary with the class.
Over this year we will learn lots of new things.
If you click on the FS 2 term pages you will be able to download the curriculum leaflet which we send to parents.

The Early Years Foundation Stage
For more information about the Early Years Foundation Stage and how parents can support children’s learning, click on the image below.
We are always eager to find out what the children have been doing and achieving at home, as well as in school. At Castle Academy, we value parental input into the on-going assessment of their children within the Early Year Foundation Stage.
Please send any parent observations to email@example.com
Below you will find what our former FS2 pupils got up to during the Covid 19 lock down and summer return to school.
Boris’ Blog- this is our summer lock down diary.
Week beginning 6th July
Ahoy there mateys Boris has had a grand time aboard the Fs2 pirate ship this week. He has been made to walk the plank, sing seas shanties and hunt for treasure. Boris has particularly enjoyed learning pirate lingo and especially likes the words ‘landlubber’ and ‘booty’ this week.
Boris has been loving space adventures with his friends in school. His favourite story linked to space was ‘The Boy Who Switched off the Sun!’ Can you predict what would happen if we switched off the sun?
This week Boris also became an astronaut on PurpleMash!
Regina’s Reading Corner
Regina is loving this week’s transport themed books. She is finding out information about the different types of transport as well as enjoying reading stories about different vehicles too. Have you got any books about transport at home? Is you book a fiction or non fiction book?
This week Regina is excited to be learning all about Pirates!
Send us a picture to show us what you have been reading at home!
Nature Watch- Update!
Regina made an exciting discovery in Mrs Bradley’s pond.
Regina has decided to get an information book from the school Library to find out more about the life cycle of a frog. This week she has been reading the glossary and learning new vocabulary related to frogs.
Joseph made an exciting discovery in the pond. He found a frog! The tadpoles have grown a little bit- we are still waiting for them to grow legs! We will keep you posted…
