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!

On Tuesday the 3rd of July, 8 x Year 6 students represented Angram Bank at an art celebration day at the Institute of Arts at Hallam University. The students participated in clay and pop art activities.
At the end of the day, the children displayed the work they had brought along from school. Pupils from all schools then voted on which school had the most fun delivering this project.
It was with great excitement that with an overwhelming vote we won this award resulting in a prize of art resources for school that we can put towards future projects.Well done everyone !!
Angram Bank Primary School was fortunate enough to be part of the Forest School Project which is an outdoor educational experience. The activities gave our children the opportunity to achieve and develop confidence through hands-on learning in a woodland environment. Forest school uses the woods and forests as a means to build independence and self esteem in children and young adults.
On Thursday 7th July our Year 1 & 2 children had a wild time at the “Yorkshire Wildlife Park”. The children went on an exploring journey meeting lots of wonderful animals along the way. Everyone had an amazing time and the children showed what wonderful ambassadors they were for Angram Bank Primary School. Well done children!!
Our Infant sports day theme was an “African Adventure” and the children had a variety of different activities to do. The children had to tame lions, mine for diamonds, pack a suit case, survive the mosquito attack and lots more! A huge thank you to Mrs Bell for creating the African adventure and thank you to all of the parents who came to support their children.

Foundation Stage Two had a fabulous time on the school visit to Cannon Hall Farm. The weather was lovely and sunny which allowed them to explore the whole farm.
The children were extremely excited to go on their very first school visit. They have been learning all about different animals and farming in the past and present. The children couldn't wait to find out more!
