Foundation 1 + 2 Blog

Welcome to Foundation Stage! We work with children from three to five years and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We have a FS1 Base (Nursery) and a FS2 Base (Reception). The teachers in FS1 are Mrs Hotchkiss and Miss Hotchkiss who are supported by Curriculum Specialist Mrs Byrne and Teaching Assistants Mrs Stephens and Mrs Harrison. In FS2 the teachers are Mrs Bell and Mrs Hurst who are supported by Teaching Assistants Miss Shaw and Miss Crooks.

During children’s time in Foundation Stage they will cover three prime areas of learning through child led and adult led activities. The prime areas are: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. These prime areas are the most essential to a child’s healthy development and future learning.

They will also cover four specific areas which are: Literacy, Mathematical Development, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. We work closely together as a Foundation Stage team and with the rest of Angram Bank School. We take part in Achievement Day, termly Parents Evening, parent workshops and fundraising events. Children get on the Angram Bank bus in our Foundation Stage and continue on an exciting learning journey!

We are cultural children in FS1
We have been very caring and cultural children this week in FS1. We have been discussing Mother's Day and how different countries celebrate this. 

Here are a few things we have been doing in nursery to celebrate Mothering Sunday...

We expressed our views this week, discussing who is special to us and ways in which we can show our love to others.

Hope everyone has a lovely Mother's Day.

New Playground
We are very excited to introduce our new PEZ (Primary Exercise Zone) on the junior playground!

The paintwork doesn't only look impressive but it is designed to be multi-purpose and will encourage and support children in PE lessons, afterschool clubs and in break times. It is a 'non-slip' surface which means children can really take off around the track safely. The PEZ will be opened on Monday 8th April after the Easter holidays to all children. Feel free to come and see it yourself and have a race (or two) after the holidays! Thank you to Sponsor Sport GB who installed the PEZ. Here are some before and after photos!

Red Nose Day in FS1

As cultural children we all participated in comic relief.

We are also spiritual children because we discussed the importance and reasoning behind comic relief showing empathy towards others. 

We also had a dance-athon and competed with FS2.

Thank you to everyone who donated!
