Teaching and Learning in the Foundation Stage




Click to read details of Learning in the Foundation Stage


Teaching and learning in the Foundation Stage is very carefully planned. The curriculum is based upon the new Foundation Stage National Curriculum, which all providers of Early Years Education must follow. We deliver our curriculum through a highly structured environment which incorporates the following areas of learning:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Education
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • We follow a structured phonics programme, Read Write Inc from Foundation stage up to Year 2.
  • During the teaching sessions, the children have the opportunity to become involved in a wide range of activities. They learn with other children in small and large groups. Some activities will be independent and others will be led by staff. Teaching and learning is based on learning through play and structured individual or small group teaching.

Parents visit school with their child prior to starting school and discuss their child’s admission on an individual basis and share any queries or concerns with staff.
