Ideas for 4 - 5 year olds

In FS2 we follow Success for All's Kinder Corner. Kinder Corner’s 16 fortnightly themes introduce a wide range of engaging, exciting concepts (e.g. day and night are the result of the earth orbiting the sun). Themes build  knowledge and vocabulary essential for successful comprehension in Key Stages 1 and 2.

Co-operative Learning strategies develop children’s Behaviour for Learning and short whole-class teaching sessions explicitly teach concepts and skills related to the Prime and Specific areas of learning. 

Children have an opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills through a range of structured and unstructured ‘Learning Labs’ (our term for continuous provision) that ‘scream the theme’ to consolidate understanding of concepts and associated vocabulary.

See below for the 16 themes we study in FS2.
