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!

Across the Foundation Stage children enjoyed a pyjama celebration and got the opportunity to dress up in their pyjama's during some point of the day. This was all for a very good cause. We were raising money to help every child get a bed time story across the UK. Your kind donations will help the Book Trust fund stories to be given to children for free across the UK. We celebrated this in many ways. We had lots of lovely stories accompanied by chocolate milkshake and marshmallows. We wrote our own stories and designed our own front cover and made sure we put our names on as we were the author's of our own books. Some people even had a cheeky nap including Mrs Hurst!
Within FS1 Bella was lucky enough to receive one of the Queens Common Wealth seeds.
Bella brought one of these seeds into nursery for us to plant.
Take a look at Bella and some of her friends planting the seed in our school grounds!
There were only 200 seeds available and we are lucky enough to have one of those in our school!
