Foundation Stage

Welcome to our Foundation Stage Class Page

Please click here to view the information we presented at our FSU curriculum meeting.

Our Nursery and Reception class together, form our Foundation Stage Unit. Each class has a teacher and there are three teaching assistants, who work across both classes.

Children learn through play and adults plan experiences using The Birth to Five Document and Development Matters Document.

There are learning opportunities in seven areas of learning:

Personal and Social

Physical

 

Communication and Language

 

Literacy

 

Mathematics

 

Understanding the World

 

Expressive Arts and Design

 

Through theses areas of learning, a range of child initiated and adult led activities are planned.

The classroom is set up in areas of Continuous Provision and this includes our outdoor provision.

 

Children can access this continuous provision to develop their skills and knowledge, with the support of the adults.

 

Each child is assessed using the Birth to Five and Development Matters documents. Every child has a Learning Journey folder, which contains photographs and pieces of work, alongside observations of their learning. This folder is kept in school and is available to the children to share with adults and their friends. Parents also have access to these learning journeys at parent’s evenings and at other times throughout the year.
