The Foundation Curriculum
We believe that the children need to have a sense of belonging and self-confidence.
They need to be encouraged to contribute and to participate, take risks and make
mistakes safely; to make connections and to think imaginatively and work
independently to express their thoughts, feelings and ideas in an encouraging and
supportive environment, to help build self esteem and self confidence.
The Reception Class undertakes the Foundation Stage:
· Personal, Social and Emotional Development
· Language and Literacy
· Mathematical Development
· Knowledge and Understanding of the World
· Physical Development
· Creative Development
