Welcome to the Foundation Stage!

As the Foundation Class teacher, it is my privilege to be working with 14 children (4-5 years old). We refer to the class as the Foundation Class because of the critical skills children learn that lay the foundations for the rest of their lives. There are seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

More information about these areas can be found in Development Matters from the British Association for Early Childhood Education. We focus on learning 40-60 months and the Early Learning Goals.

Information about some of the learning ahead this term can be found in this letter: 9-January-2017

Kind regards,

Mrs Skinner
Foundation Class Teacher
