In the Foundation Stage our aim is to provide the very best start in life for your child by developing the skills they need to become independent learners. We follow the statutory framework of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets the standards for learning and development for all children up to the end of their Reception year.
Learning through play underpins all of the EYFS and the framework is split into three “Prime” areas of learning and development: Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), Physical Development (PD) and Communication and Language (CL). There are also four “Specific” areas of learning and development: Literacy Development (LD), Maths (MD), Understanding of the World(UW) and Expressive Arts and Design (EAD).
At Savile Park we encourage children to become independent and curious learners and our environment is structured to reflect children’s varying interests and individual learning styles. We are also very fortunate to have access to a fantastic outdoor classroom. We place equal importance on the indoor and outdoor learning environments. Within each classroom the children have access to nine areas: Role Play, Writing, Reading, Sand, Creative, Construction, Numeracy, ICT and Continuous Snack. In each area there are activities for the children to complete in order to consolidate and extend prior learning.
On-going formative assessment is at the heart of our practice. We observe children which allows staff to plan experiences and learning opportunities through a highly structured environment in order to deepen children’s understanding and drive their learning forward to the next stage.
Homework: Will be set linked to topic work as and when it is appropriate.
PE: Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon
Reading: Bring your book to school every day. Please read 3 times a week.

Trips, events and visitors:
Reception children learn through a play based curriculum where they are given the opportunity to talk, observe, plan, question, experiment, test, repeat, reflect and respond, independently, with peers or with adults. The EYFS provides children with the skills they need to progress onto Key Stage One which includes Year One and Year Two. The staff across these stages of development work closely together to ensure your child has the best possible experience of education right from the start.
Wren class went to the park as part of the big bird watch week. Last week the class were searching for birds in our outdoor area and couldn’t find any. As a class we thought of where we might see birds and decided that we might be able to see some in the park. Whilst we were there we saw lots of blackbirds and some pigeons. We also saw some smaller bird who had made their nests high in the trees. We used our binoculars and recorded the birds we saw on a chart.
