Welcome to Foundation Year.

We aim to provide a stimulating and rich curriculum where each child can flourish in a caring environment which promotes effective learning and development. This curriculum is based on six key areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication, Language and Literacy
  • Problem solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
  • Knowledge and Understanding of the World
  • Physical Development
  • Creative Development

Many of the activities which the children undertake are initiated by them – often making use of areas like our home corner and writing area – while they are also regularly involved in whole class, group and individual tasks.

Please find below the termly curriculum overviews for parents: Autumn, Spring and Summer. Also you can find the National Curriculum relevant for this year group. There is also a document showing the skills to be learnt in this year groups foundation subjects. Should you need to know any further information please speak to the class teacher.
