Foundation Stage / Early Years

Children who attend the Foundation classes (nursery and reception) at St Andrews CofE School will have the opportunity to learn the EYFS curriculum. The curriculum is split into prime areas of learning and specific areas of learning. The prime areas include communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development.  The specific areas of learning include literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design. The children are encouraged to develop and learn skills in all these areas using playing and exploring, active learning and creating and thinking critically. We also use a range of cross curricula and topic work to aid children to make links when learning new concepts.
