Welcome to Upper Foundation - the Cherry class! Our curriculum is based on the framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and we deliver this through a play-based and teaching input approach. The curriculum is organised in a way which meets each child's individual needs and interests. Throughout the year, the children will have fun, make friends,  make memories, learn and develop at a pace matched to each child's stage of development. We encourage children to take risks, be curious and explore.  We would like them to become resilient individuals, who are able to problem solve and persevere with tasks even when they find them a challenge. By doing this each child will be equipped with the skills to be a life-long, independent and a effective learners.

We will cover several areas of the EYFS during this topic, paying particular attention to the prime areas, which include: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language and also Maths and Literacy.


Below are some photos from the Number morning we held at school. The children had lots of fun exploring maths in a variety of interesting ways:
