 Overview of the Foundation Stage

The Reception Class is your child's final year of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for Year One as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes.

Your child will be learning skills, aquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.

 Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development

These prime areas are those most essential for your child's healthy development and future learning.

The prime areas will help children to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are: 

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive arts and design

Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.

Foundation Stage and KS1 follow the Letters and Sounds scheme for phonics.
