The Foundation Stage

WELCOME TO THE FOUNDATION STAGE

 

Here at Buswells Lodge we believe that the children learn through their play. We encourage the children to use the skills that they have learnt from the adult sessions in their own play. They are set challenges around the classroom but are also able to select and use the resources independently and decide which way to take their learning. The adults then develop and extend the child's learning through their own interests.

 

We ensure that the children have a welcoming environment which is accesible to all and where the children feel safe and valued.

Below is the policy for the Foundation Stage at Buswells Lodge Primary School

Foundation Stage 1

 

Both our Foundation Stage 1 classes (am and pm) follow a planned theme which lasts for the whole of the half term. This is interspersed with any relevant celebrations or festivals. During the year, the children will also look at the seasons and how the environment is changing. This will be planned in where relevant.

 

These themes cover all of the areas set out in the Early Learning Goals.

 

The themes for this year are;
