Our vision in the Foundation Stage is to nurture children’s natural enthusiasm to learn.

By understanding what our children already know, we inspire learning through excellent play opportunities and a passion for bringing a rich and varied curriculum to life. Thoughtfully planned learning opportunities and robust assessments aim to lead the children towards self-motivation and challenge, encourage self-discipline, perseverance and commitment to their learning and self. The staff team scaffold the children as they learn and develop.

We do this by…

Interactions with children during planned and child initiated play and activities:

Communicating and modelling language, showing, explaining, demonstrating, exploring ideas, encouraging, questioning, recalling, providing a narrative for what they are doing and by facilitating and setting challenges.

Please click below to see our long term plan for the reception class year. We use this to ensure the breadth and coverage of the EYFS document, however we also combined this with 'teaching in the moment' and moving learning on from the children's interests.

 Reading is a huge part of our day in the foundation stage and we want ALL of our children to have a love for reading!

We warmly invite all parents and carers to come to our READ AND RELAX sessions every Friday morning (8.45am -9.10am) in your child's classroom. Here, you will be able to share a book or two with your child and the staff will be on hand to support you.

Please find below a guide to how you can help your child with reading:

This term we have been learning all about ourselves. These are some of the things we have done.
