Welcome to Foundation

In Foundation Stage we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. This consists of seven areas of learning as follows; Personal and Social Education, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy Development, Mathematical Development, Understanding the world and Expressive Arts and Design. We adopt a thematic approach to our teaching where the children’s voice is heard, they help us choose themes and topics which reflect their current interests.

Our day consists of short focussed activities in small groups interspersed with child initiated learning both inside and outside the classroom. We have daily carpet times for Talking Time, Letters and Sounds, Mathematics and Literacy/ Knowledge of the World.

We teach letters and sounds in Foundation and Key Stage 1. We use a variety of books to teach the children to read, these are arranged in coloured book bands according to the reading ability of the individual child. 

On Fridays we also go out into the Forest for our forest school activities.

Throughout the year we take the children out of school on numerous occasions to support our curriculum and their learning.

A trip to Stockley Farm at Christmas.

Chinese New Year at the Choy Hing Restaurant.

Trip to Pizza Express to make our own pizzas, after we drew Italy for our country in the World Cup Sweepstake!

Parents are invited into school and church throughout the year when we celebrate key events in the church calendar such as Mothering Sunday and Harvest Festival
