Early Years Foundation Stage
On entry to school, the children are submerged into life in Foundation Stage – this is the stage of education prior to National Curriculum.
Children work on a curriculum based on three prime areas of learning, and four specific areas of learning.
The three prime areas of learning are:
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Communication and Language
- Physical Development
The four specific areas of learning are:
- Expressive Art and Design
- Understanding the World
The Dolphins and Whales Classrooms are organised so that pupils have access to areas of Continuous Provision, and systems are in place to ensure that pupils experience all areas on offer, including our fantastic Outdoor Classroom.
Computers are part of our everyday life at St Chad’s, and our children are fast becoming very confident when using them. We regularly make use of the following websites, click and have a look:
ICT games – Literacy and Numeracy games – lots of fun on here!
Nick Junior – lots of activities with favourite characters!
Cbeebies – a wide range of activities, again with their favourite characters!
