We like to learn in Foundation Stage Two
We learn in the following areas:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Literacy - Reading/Writing/Phonics
Understanding The World
Expressive Arts and Design
Throughout the curriculum areas the children are encouraged to play and explore, solve problems, be creative and think critically.
Children are active in their learning and are given opportunities to take risks and develop resilience.
In the interest of health and safety, no jewellery is permitted in the Early Years Foundation Stage – Nursery (FS1) and Reception – Sunshine’s and Rainbows (FS2). This includes earrings, thela and religious necklaces.
