Welcome to Foundation Stage at Nafferton Primary School where we aim to provide a safe, enabling environment in which children feel part of a community, are valued and safe, enjoy and achieve.
This is done by:
- Building on the child’s learning from the end of their pre-schools.
- Ensuring quality and consistency, so that all children make good progress.
- Provide a secure foundation which creates exciting and creative learning opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of the children and are informed by talking and developing a deep understanding of the children and through regular team discussions.
- Working as partners with parents.
We believe play is essential to childhood. Play is a child’s means of expression and discovery. When children explore and re-enact with others, they grow socially, and their understanding of the world is strengthened. Children learn to concentrate, be creative, make decisions, problem solve, work with others, build resilience and persist when faced with challenge. Many play based activities take place outside where children have access to two well-resourced outdoor areas.
Please enjoy looking through the photographs of some of the activities we have enjoyed this year.
In Foundation & KS1 we follow the letters and sounds programme to deliver Phonics.
