Hippos - Foundation Stage 2

Welcome to the Happy Helpful Hippos!

Picture 1 Our class teacher is Mrs Jones.
Picture 2 Our teaching assistant is Miss Allen.

Welcome to Hippo Class we are a Foundation Stage Two Class.This term our learning challenge is "Why are humans not like tigers?" .Our " WOW!" moment will be a visit to The Yorkshire Wildlife Park.  We will focus on  the stories "The Tiger who Came to Tea"  "Rumble in the Jungle" and "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". Our role play area is a home corner where children can pretend to make and cook food and invite the tiger for tea. Our Jigsaw Theme (PSE/PSHE curriculum) is "Changing Me " where we focus on what makes us different and what makes everyone special. We also focus on what makes us healthy and why. We always think about our British Values and our focus this half term will be on "Individual Liberty " where the children will look at their right to an opinion. We have  a book swap morning which in Hippo class is on a Thursday morning. PE will be on a  Wednesday Morning. PE kits will be needed for this. Please name all clothing in PE kits.


We have lots of exciting visits planned in our local area.  We will be visiting the local allotments  on Friday 5th July. We will also visit Vicar Water on  Friday 19th July. 


Homework will be based  on reading and sound recognition. The work will be sent home on a Friday and will be based on sounds the children will be learning in class.  When reading the children will gain stickers and certificates when they have achieved 25 reads at home and every 25 steps thereafter. You can monitor their progress on the poster found in the class window.
