Welcome to ‘Foundation Stage’ at Worsley Bridge Primary School. We are made up of three classes. RW, RB and RP. In order to provide an environment that is happy, warm and secure we pride ourselves on our induction programme.
We find that by doing all of these things that we really get to know your children inside out and upside down.
The Foundation Stage curriculum states that ‘parents are children’s first and most enduring educators’ and so working in partnership with parents is very important for us. We really encourage a trusting home-school relationship.
We are very proud of our approach to Early Years education, believing in its distinct importance in being the foundation for children to then build upon in later schooling and life.
We constantly aim to provide an environment that is stimulating, encouraging the children to think for themselves, exercise their imaginations and, very importantly, have fun and develop a love of learning.
We follow the Foundation Stage curriculum thoroughly, offering the very best opportunities through play, which underpin all future learning through supporting, fostering and promoting children’s development. The curriculum is made up of seven areas of learning, all of which are of equal importance and interconnected.
Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
These are known as the Prime Areas of learning;
We also equally support the 4 Specific Areas; through which the 3 Prime Areas are strengthened and applied;
As well as lots of opportunities to play and explore both inside and outside of the classrooms. We also have group activities with our teachers. These are usually phonics, writing or maths based. We also love carpet time sessions where we listen to stories, explore mathematical concepts, have group discussions, sing songs and listen to one another.
As we progress through the year we are also involved in Forest School Learning and Music sessions; both of which are taught by specialist teachers.
