Foundation Stage 1 & 2

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!

Foundation 1 (Nursery) and Foundation 2 (Reception) are being taught in the same building from September 2017. It is a big change for all of us but we are already beginning to see the benefits of working as a unit. We have a very experienced and dedicated team of staff. They are:

Miss Boraston - Early Years Foundation Stage teacher
Mrs McCoy, Mrs Richards, Mrs Cleave, Mrs Munson - Nursery Nurses
Miss Farrier - Nursery Nurse Assistant
Miss Crawford, Mrs Joyce, Miss Thomson - Teaching Assistants
Miss Prout - Mealtime Assistant

The Early Years Foundation Stage recognises that children learn best through play. There are 3 Prime areas of learning (Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language) and 4 Specific areas (Mathematics; Expressive Arts and Design; Understanding of the World). The Prime areas contain essential skills which children need to help them learn. We will be starting a new Learning Project in a couple of weeks so do keep checking back for information.
