Welcome to Our Foundation Year (Children of Reception Age).

‘Children have a right to provision which enables them to develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender’. (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child)

In the early years phase, children are taught through topics covering the 7 early learning goals:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design
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.
