Red Hall Primary Foundation Stage.
We are very fortunate at Red Hall to have a refurbished Foundation Stage unit comprising of both Nursery and Reception classrooms as well as a large, shared outdoor area.
The two year groups work closely together to provide exciting opportunities for all of our Foundation Stage children both indoors and outdoors.
We deliver a curriculum of planned purposeful play as well as adult led activities following the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage Development Matters’ guidance. This curriculum precedes the ‘National Curriculum’ and is made up of seven areas of learning. They are; ‘Personal, Social and Emotional Development’, ‘Physical Development’ and ‘Communication and Language’ (known as the Prime Areas) and ‘ Literacy’, ‘Mathematics’,’ Understanding of the world’ and ‘Expressive arts and design’ (known as specific areas). All of these areas are planned for daily and opportunities are provided indoors and out. Our planning is flexible as we use the children for our starting points, where possible following their interests so as to ensure and exciting and creative curriculum.
February half-term 2019 the Early Years playground had something of a make-over. These were the before photos to remind us how much it needed doing to it!
