Years 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!

SEND Parenting Programmes

New support is available to parents and carers of children with SEND, through free parenting seminars and group programmes.  These provide people with tips and strategies, and are based on international research carried out over the past 30 years.

This includes three programmes for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), for younger children, 2-8 year olds and teenagers.  There are also new programmes led by parents themselves.

More than 70 people attended SEND parenting programmes last term, with 97% rating them as good or excellent.

Visit www.sheffield.gov.uk/parenting or contact the Parenting Team on 0114 205 7243 or sheffieldparenting@sheffield.gov.uk to book a place and find out more. Everyone is welcome to attend

Today we took this one step further by working in pairs. Here are a couple of examples of our favourite paired shapes:



Back to back sitting pike



Side to side tuck on back



Head to head supported straddle
