In the Foundation Stage, our children are experiencing the familiar world through enquiry by investigating the indoor and outdoor environment. They are given experiences that help them to increase their curiosity about the world around them and help them to begin to understand events, people and places, living things, and the work people do. Using all their senses, children are encouraged to enjoy learning by exploration, enquiry, experimentation, asking questions and trying to find answers. They are developing and communicating using an increasing range of vocabulary. They express their own ideas, opinions and feelings with imagination, creativity and sensitivity. They are beginning to think about questions and ask them, listening to the answers and to others’ ideas.

The children participate in different types of play and a range of planned activities, including those that are child initiated and those that build on previous experiences. We have learned about who we are and where we come from, how plants grow and change, animals that live around the world as well as animals that become our pets.

Here are just a few of our experiences, which have included: how water flows down guttering; making cakes in the ‘mud kitchen’; creating new colours; sharing books and telling stories; measuring using cubes to compare heights; mixing ingredients to see how they change; making imaginative worlds; climbing across different pathways and using technology to enhance learning.
