Foundation Stage Ethos


 In the foundation Stage we encourage children to make choices, problem solve and think critically.  Through continuous provision we encourage children to become independent learners and nurture their interests through enhancements within the environment.  Staff observe and record children’s achievements, and work together to ensure next steps are taken. Each child’s progress is recorded in their Learning Journey which is shared with both parents, children and the Senior Leadership team.


Welcome to Foundation Stage 1

Nursery Sessions run from Monday to Wednesday 8.40am-3.10pm

We are learning about colours and colour mixing as well as focussing on lots of different artists.  We will be celebrating Mother's Day and talking about people we love and how we can be kind.  The children will be  continuing to help develop the Foundation Garden by planting seeds and helping them to grow.  We have enjoyed seeing our autumn bulbs emerge and we hope you agree that the daffodils are bringing some lovely colour to the garden! If you have any gardening resources (seeds, plants, tools or planters), we would appreciate any donations! We will also be celebrating Easter and doing some Easter hunts!


We will be reading:
