  13. THE EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE Our Foundation Stage prepares children for their school life as well as preparing them for future learning and success in Key Stage 1and beyond. We believe children in Nursery and Reception learn best through purposeful play, by exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking which takes place both indoors and outside.

  14. THE EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE Our children learn skills, acquire new knowledge and demonstrate their understanding through 7 areas of learning and development.

  15. THE EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE Most children develop the 3 prime areas first. These are: Communication and Language Physical Development Personal, Social and Emotional Development These prime areas are essential for your child s healthy development and future learning.

  16. THE EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are: Literacy Mathematics Understanding the World Expressive Arts and Design

  17. What can I do to help my child starting school? What can I do to help my child starting school? 1. Encourage independence Reception children will be expected to know the basics of looking after themselves. Encourage your child to dress on their own tackling buttons, zips and taking off and putting on jackets. They should know how to eat using a knife, fork and spoon independently and be able to go to the toilet without help. 2. Help them learn about making friends Having friends is hugely beneficial for children. Those who have been to pre-school, nursery or a childminder will have already had experience of socialising, encourage your child to talk to other children at play sessions or at the park and invite friends over for play dates. 3. Develop speaking and listening skills School children are taught to listen to what the teacher says, and to answer when spoken to. Get your child ready for circle time a time when the teacher and class sit together every day to discuss topics by trying it out at home. Either make your own circle time with siblings or use teddies and dolls and encourage family discussions at the dinner table, taking turns to listen and to speak.

  18. What can I do to help my child starting school? What can I do to help my child starting school? 4. Teach them to recognise their name Some children will already be able to read and write simple words by the time they start Reception; others will be new learners. It s important that your child can recognise their name so they can pick up the correct name-labelled uniform or jacket, and also find their own drawer in the classroom. With your child, explore what the letters in their name look like and help them try writing their name, too. 5. Talk enthusiastically about school Children's thoughts about school can vary enormously. Some can hardly wait to start while some find it stressful to leave their parents for the day. Start helping your child look forward to school by talking enthusiastically about it now. Talk about what your child will be doing and who they will meet in positive terms.
