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!

The children have had lots of fun today during our sports day! They all participated, offering great team spirit.
Well done to all the children that took part. You were amazing, both individually and as a team! You should be very proud of yourselves.
Everyone then enjoyed a nice, refreshing ice pop!

This afternoon, Year 2 and FS2 took advantage of the lovely sunshine and shared some special time together.
The Year 2s paired up with a child from FS2 and shared their books with each other.
Here's a few pictures of our magical moment.
This week in FS2 we have enjoyed listening to a story called On The Way Home by Jill Murphy. In the story Claire has a little fall but decides to make up stories to tell different people what has happened to her. As moral children we have discussed if this was the right thing to do? Some of us thought that this was the wrong choice as Claire was telling lies. However some of us thought it was ok as she was just using her imagination. What do you think? Is lying and using your imagination the same thing?
