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.
Hi Lynx Class,
Hope you are all keeping safe and staying at home! I am missing you and it is very quiet in the classroom without you all. Miss Blagden has taken me home so that I can do my learning at home and am not all alone. I will post some pictures of my home learning to show you what I have been up to.
Monday 23rd March
Today, I have enjoyed a picnic in the garden. It was nice to get some fresh air in the safety of the garden.
Tuesday 24th March
I have been busy reading my favourite non fiction book about creepy crawlies today.
Wednesday 25th March
Boris enjoyed doing some of the activities on the FS2 Home Learning Plan today. He went out into the garden to look for signs of Spring. Did you find any signs of Spring in your garden?
Thursday 26th March
Boris has been doing his home learning using Purplemash. Do you like his weather symbols? Don’t forget to log in to Purplemash at home and you can do the ‘2dos’ that Miss Blagden and Mrs Bradley have set you. Boris says a massive well done to Charlie, Sam, Evie, Esme, Rory, Rosey, Emily and Eadie who have already been logging on and sharing their learning.
Regina’s Reading Corner
Regina has chosen the book ‘Rabbit’s Spring Adventure’ for you to enjoy this week from home.
Home learning for our younger children.
Hi Lynx Class,
We hope you are all staying safe and keeping busy at home by doing some of the home learning activities. Miss Blagden has taken Boris home with her to help him with his home learning too- we will be posting a daily ‘Boris’ Blog’ to show you what he’s been up to! Remember to send us some pictures of what you have been up to at home to FS2obs@astreacastle.org.

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.
