Learning through the foundation phase:
Our children will be given the opportunity to explore the world around them and understand how things work. We encourage this learning by allowing the children to take part in practical activities relevant to their developmental stage. They will be challenged through practical activities and develop their thinking with open-ended questions.
The Foundation Phase has 7 areas of learning which are delivered through practical activities and active learning experiences both indoors and outdoors. The areas of learning are:
- personal and social development, well-being and cultural diversity
- language, literacy and communication skills
- mathematical development
- Welsh language development
- knowledge and understanding of the world
- physical development
- creative development.
Our aim is to make learning fun

As I’m sure you are aware we try to take the children outdoors as much as possible so if you could ensure they have the correct clothing to suit the weather such as coats, wellies and so on this would be great. Oh and don’t forget to label!
