Foundation Stage

In our Foundation Stage Unit for reception (FS2) and nursery (FS1) aged pupils, teaching and learning covers the following areas of the Foundation Stage Curriculum:

 

Prime Areas

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Communication and Language Development

Physical Development

 

Specific Areas

Literacy

Mathematics

Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

 

These areas of learning encompass aspects of all those ‘subjects’ in later phases of education. Teachers and teaching assistants work as a team of Foundation Stage Practitioners and skillfully link learning intentions based upon themes and following children’s interests. There is a strong emphasis on active play based learning. Most important is the fostering of enjoyment of, and enthusiasm for, learning.

In the Foundation Stage phonics is taught using Letters and Sounds using the resources from Jolly Phonics.

 

For all our pupils the development of social and emotional skills that support children in being confident, independent and collaborative learners is paramount. In a nutshell - a happy child will be an effective learner.
