Reception Class (UFS)
Welcome to Upper Foundation Stage. I am Mrs Simpson (Foundation Stage Teacher and Phase Leader) and I shall be teaching alongside Mrs Eyre (Teaching Assistant), Mrs Waite (Foundation Stage Teacher) and Mrs Iveson (Nursey Nurse).
We are delighted to welcome you to our Foundation Stage setting and we are looking forward to supporting you and your children as they continue on their learning journey.
We believe in nurturing independence, curiosity, self belief and an excitement to learn amongst our children. We work collaboratively with Lower Foundation to plan and deliver a wide range of exciting learning experiences through both child led and adult initiated activities. We are committed to ensuring all children are able to reach their full potential.
Throughout their time in Foundation children work progressively through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which consists of 7 areas of learning;
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
The children have access to a rich indoor and outdoor environment through which they are guided, challenged and encouraged to practise and develop their learning through their own independent play.
We value the contribution of parents within the children’s learning and we offer several opportunities during the year for parents and family members to work alongside your children and share in their learning.
Overall, we aim to ensure that your child’s experience in our Foundation Stage is a positive, exciting and fulfilling one. It is important to us that all children feel valued, safe, happy and encouraged.
