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!

Last week the long awaited snow finally hit High Green! The children were thrilled and couldn't wait to get outside and explore the snow and ice.
We made sure that we were ready for the cold weather and made sure that we wrapped up well! The children loved getting their wellington boots and snow suits on to make the most of the day outside.
The children were fascinated by the snow and the different forms that they found. We quickly discovered that some places were more icy than others and which snow made the best snow bricks!!
The high level of energy and engagement that the children showed lasted all day and the language and questions that came from the discussions were so good that we hope the snow will come again soon!!
