Foundation Stage Curriculum
Foundation Stage curriculum
The reception year is the last year of the Foundation Stage and the most important year of a child’s school life! It is the aim of the reception staff to make this year a happy, exciting and challenging experience for the reception children.
Our curriculum is broken down into 6 areas of learning:
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Communication, language and literacy
- Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
- Physical development
- Creative development
Because children learn best through play, we try to provide opportunities and space for children to be active learners both indoors and out. We aim to organise an environment that maximises opportunities for self motivated, creative learning because we want the children to be independent learners.
At the end of the reception year the children are well prepared for the challenges of Year 1.
