Early Years Foundation Stage

At Lansbury Bridge school, we believe that learning for foundation stage children should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience in which they explore, investigate, discover, create, practice, rehearse, repeat revise and consolidate their developing knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes.

During the foundation stage, children will be given the opportunity to develop their learning through playing and communicating in their preferred mode with each other and interacting with practitioners.

 Practitioners will support children’s learning through direct teaching, interacting, questioning, responding to questions, working with and observing children, assessing and reporting children’s progress. This includes planning and creating the learning environment, organising time and use of resources to support and extend children’s learning.

 Strategies used in learning and teaching will be varied in response to children’s individual needs and will include:

  • Children being encouraged to initiate activities and learn from each other
  • Children being given time to explore their own ideas and interests in depth
  • Children being given the opportunity to learn in different ways and at different rates.
  • Practitioners modeling appropriate use of resources and positive behaviour
  • Children being presented with opportunities to learn individually, in small and  large groups

Well planned and appropriately resourced provision areas will provide children with opportunities to explore and develop a range of skills, knowledge and understanding across all seven areas of learning.

At Lansbury Bridge School we shall make systematic observations and assessments of each child’s achievements, interests and learning styles and use these observations and assessments to identify learning priorities and plan relevant and motivating learning experiences.
