Foundation Stage Curriculum
A creative and balanced curriculum means everyone can achieve, enjoy learning and prepare you for the future ahead. We aim to provide an environment that supports and encourages investigation and curiosity – a key part of early learning.
Learning in the Foundation Stage is a balance of direct teaching, games and play. The Nursery and Reception classes have dedicated outdoor areas. There are opportunities to work with the teacher, to practise independently what has been taught and to play in and out of the classroom using all our new skills.
Each teacher is responsible for planning and delivering lessons and organising activities that follow the requirements of the curriculum and is personalised to each child. This ensures knowledge and understanding, even at an early age, builds on previous learning and supports each individual’s progress.
Speech and Language is a vital area of development in all phases and the foundations for this are embedded in the Nursery and Reception classes. Good speaking and listening skills are crucial to learning now and in the future.
