Foundation 1 team
In the Early Years at Wath C of E Primary School we want every child to be happy and confident and have a love for learning. We believe in providing all children with a safe and stimulating environment that builds on each individual’s abilities, needs and interests.
We believe that children should have meaningful opportunities to learn through play which is fun, engaging and suitably challenging. We feel it is important to create an environment where children can become fully engaged and immersed in their learning, allowing them to explore and deepen their thinking and understanding. We want your children to feel secure and happy to learn and to be willing to challenge themselves and take risks.
We are committed to providing the best possible start to school life, equipping children with skills and giving them experiences which will ensure that they grow in confidence and independence.
In Foundation 1 we are keen to involve parents in their children’s learning journey and share experience such as school trips with parents and carers. We have good relationships with families and invite parents and carers into the classroom at the start of each day. Our sessions are run either each morning or afternoon for 3 hours each.
Our curriculum is centred around what children are interested in but also what is meaningful to them at their age. Our Autumn term topic is “Who and I? and What is a Traditional Tale?” We will be reading lots of stories around traditional tales and visiting the Bear Workshop to make our own reading bear that the children can take home in turn to share traditional tales with. During this term we are thinking about our favourite things and making lots of new friend, we will have lots of fun explore our setting, being creative and getting to know one another.
