Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception)

In the Foundation Unit we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS). We support the children to become independent and collaborative learners. We provide a range of activities and experiences that encourage children to take risks, explore and make links between their explorations.

We have had a brilliant start to the school year. The children are settling in well and we are looking forward to sharing some exciting adventures with the children over the next year.

Here is an overview of some of the themes we will be covering this term in Foundation;

Our topic is - All about me!

We will be looking at the following areas;

  • What makes me special? – link to Religious Education and looking at different places of worship.
  • Families.
  • Special people.
  • Likes and Dislikes
  • Keeping healthy.
  • Making Friends  We will be having a focus on widening the children’s vocabulary this term. The types of words we are going to focus on are:
  • Gender: he, she, boy, girl, man, lady
  • Families: Mum, Dad, parents, grandparents, friends
  • Number names, letter names.

 When reading stories at home you could ask your child to find an interesting word and talk about the meaning, IE, gloomy, excited, bright.


Look forward to working with you and your child over the next year!
