Welcome to Cubs Class (Foundation Stage)
The Early Years team consists of Mrs Barlow-Kempster (Teacher), Sue Tilly (Early Years Practitioner) and Naomi Keeping (Classroom LSA). As a team we work together to make each day a fun and memorable learning experience for your child.
As a parent you will receive regular updates , photos and videos of what is happening in class as well as reminders for important diary dates. We use an app called Class Dojo for this and all parents are provided with an individual login to join.
The Foundation Stage curriculum is organised into seven areas of learning -
Learning in the classroom environment takes many forms. As well as direct teaching through small group and whole class activities, the children develop deeper learning through opportunities to play. The classroom (inside and outside) is set up with continuous provision. This includes activities that cover all areas of the curriculum and the children access these independently.
We believe that nurturing personal growth and interpersonal skills is extremely important. Therefore, developing these skills is a vital part of our curriculum and at the centre of our ethos in Early Years.
