Foundation Class

Welcome to Foundation Stage Class!

This is our school. With God’s help we care for one another, are curious in our learning, and know we are all loved.

Luke 10:27  'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'

Reception Home School Learning



Hi everyone! laugh

How is it July already? 2 and half more weeks to go of this term! 


 For those who are not returning to school, I will still be putting learning ideas on here to help with your learning from home.  These will now be uploaded every Wednesday by 12pm. I really hope you are all well and staying safe.  I have also included a couple of social stories to read to your children about their return to school and to help them understand and adjust to the new routines.

Missing you all and hope to see you all soon!

Take care,

Mrs Lord

During our time in the Reception class we learn the importance and joy of being part of our school community, by joining in with school routines and events.  By the end of the year we are confident, independent and firmly established within school life.

Curriculum Subjects

In the Foundation Class we follow the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum (EYFS).  During the day we learn through play, exploring and discovering from all the learning areas in our classroom.


These 7 learning areas include:


Prime Areas - Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, and Communication and Language


Specific Areas - Numeracy, Literacy, Understanding the World, and Expressive Arts and Design


Reading is a very important part of the Early Years curriculum, so we spend a lot of time enjoying listening to and joining in with a variety of stories.  A strong grasp of phonics helps us to become independent readers.



  • Reading 5 x per week- Checked every Monday for Reading Reward stickers
  • Keywords- Weekly check on a Friday
  • Phonics/letter formation homework- Due in every Wednesday. Given on a Friday.
