Welcome to our Reception (Foundation Stage 2)

At Warren Wood Primary Academy, we aim to provide children with the best possible start to their school life. We inspire a love of learning through providing first-hand experiences in a nurturing, play-based environment, with adult-led activities, that incorporates and embeds our Skills for Life principles in everything we do.

In Reception (FS2) we work hard to provide a rich and stimulating environment where your child may learn from new experiences and make good friendships with ourselves and other children. We get to know your children really well so we can cater for their individual needs by using topics and children’s current interests to plan and deliver the curriculum. We enhance our continuous provision with these topics and interests to generate curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.

From September 2020, Warren Primary Academy have decided to be an Adopter of the new EYFS Curriculum.  We will be following the Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage, Setting the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five – EYFS reforms early adopter version July 2020.

The Foundation Stage at Warren Wood Primary Academy applies to all children joining us between the ages of 3 and 5 years old. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the curriculum. There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in all early years settings. All areas of learning and development are important and inter-connected.

Three areas are particularly important for building a foundation for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, forming relationships and thriving.

These are the prime areas:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development

As a provider we must also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:

  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design

 

The Foundation Stage staff work as a team to monitor children’s progress through making observations of each child, assessments of their individual abilities and collecting evidence of a child’s achievements such as paintings, drawings, writing and photographs which we capture on an online learning journal, called Tapestry, that parents can access.

Welcome to our Nursery (Foundation Stage 1)

For most children, their first experiences of school are Nursery. Every child at Warren Wood Primary Academy receives a wonderful start in life. We offer a rich and stimulating environment that is warm and safe, where your child will feel happy and secure. Your child will love playing, exploring, experimenting, socialising, discovering and learning with a qualified teacher who sets engaging activities.

Right from the start of their school life at Warren Wood Primary Academy children will be experiencing and embedding the Skills for Life principles that will ensure that they will be ready to start their Reception class (FS2).
