Foundation Stage 2021 - 2022
In the Foundation Stage, learning is through...
We immerse ourselves in fabulous topics and develop in three Prime and four Specific areas of learning.
The EYFS Framework explains how and what your child will be learning to support their healthy development.
Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and demonstrating their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in

Reception have PE lessons every Tuesday/Friday morning however, we ask that they have their PE shoes in a bag in school everyday as we may use them for dance and movement. We recommend that your child brings their PE kit in at the beginning of each half term and we will send it home at the end of each half term. They will also take part in forest schools and need wellies and waterproof clothes.
Rainbow Reading Challenge
To encourage children to read for pleasure at home, the children are invited to take part in our whole-school reading reward challenge. Children will receive stamps on bookmark cards based on how many books they have read at home. This does not include their school phonics reading book but instead books of choice. We have attached a link to the website of the recommended reading list for Reception to help with suggestions for high quality texts.
- Reception children will receive 1 stamp per book or 2 stamps if they choose to read a book from the recommended reading list of books for Reception. Your child does not have to read the book - the challenge is simply about sharing and enjoying stories as many books as you can together.
- Bookmark cards will be stamped by your child’s class teacher once an adult at home has confirmed the book has been completed. Just a signature in your child’s reading diary is all that’s needed.
- Each time your child fills a bookmark card (see below for how stamps and badges correlate) they will receive a colour badge in our class celebration assembly with the aim of collecting all the colour badges of the rainbow. Once the whole rainbow reader challenge has been achieved for the new academic year, your child’s name will be entered into a raffle for a prize.
10 stamps = red badge 50 stamps = blue badge
20 stamps = orange badge 60 stamps = indigo badge
30 stamps = yellow badge 70 stamps = violet badge
40 stamps = green badge
