We have two Reception classes, Beech class taught by Mrs Greenhalgh and Oak class taught by Mrs James. Teaching assistants Mrs Stephens, Miss Wingrove, Miss Prince work in the Reception supporting learning and working with small groups. Each adult in Foundation Stage has a key worker group for which they are responsible.

The Foundation Stage Curriculum

The curriculum for the Foundation Stage underpins all future learning by supporting, fostering, promoting and developing the children’s learning in the seven areas of the Foundation Stage curriculum.

All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. These three areas, the prime areas, are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development

The four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied are:

  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design
