Early Years Foundation Stage

"The positive start they make in the early years, especially in developing their personal and social skills, prepares them very well for learning."  

(Ofsted 2015)


We have a 60 place Foundation Stage Unit with Nursery and Reception children. Within the unit we have four family groups. Each group is led by a key person who has special responsibilities for working with a small number of children.


Our theme this term is.....

‘Let’s Celebrate’

This topic will give the children lots of opportunities to look at how people celebrate various celebrations and festivals around the world.  The children will also have lots of opportunities to listen to, read and retell celebration stories. 

We want to make learning exciting for your child and so welcome any ideas from home. If you have any suggestions please speak to a member of staff.

You can download our intended learning for the Autumn term below, along with our newsletter.
