Welcome to the Foundation Stage
The staff in the Foundation Stage are Miss Brookes (EYFS Lead), Mrs Taylor and Miss Smith.
Our Key Workers for our Mini Saints are Miss Dixon and Miss Bryan.
Each child in the Foundation Stage has a key worker group.
We use these key groups to develop our communication and language, through conversation and turn taking games.
Our Mini Saints children are able to attend Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This is dependent on funding.
The school day runs from 8:45am until 3:00pm.
Fruit and milk is provided free of charge throughout they day. The children have hot lunches, for a small fee, which they share in the classroom environment with their teachers to encourage table manners and communication skills.
A member of the Early Years team is always available in the morning or afternoon at the classroom door to pass on any messages. Appointments can also be made at the school office.
Our Topics are linked to our RE Curriculum and are as follows:
Our Wonderful World. A Saviour is Born. We are Family. All Aboard. Spread the Word and Gather Together.
These topic areas then link to a story and a rhyme that we share with the children.
They share the children's interests and what they would like to learn, they then decide on a focus and what activities they might like to take part in. This is completed every two weeks; topics may stretch if the children show an increased interest.
