Foundation Stage

Welcome to the Foundation Stage

Hello, we are the teachers in the foundation stage. Our names are Mrs Ellidge (RGE) (Reception teacher and E.Y.F.S. Leader), Miss Alderson (RLA) (Reception  teacher), Mrs Heaton (Nursery teacher on Monday and Tuesday), and Ms Brodie (Nursery teacher on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday). As well as great teachers, we also have fantastic teaching assistants who support your children too. They are Mrs Kirk, Mrs Rowbotham, Miss McLuckie and Mrs Armstrong.

We are all excited and privileged to be teaching your children this year. Our aim is to provide a caring and stimulating environment which will encourage your children to progress to the best of their ability. We have lots of FUN being busy and it is through our play that we learn all we need to know.

We provide a wide, experience based curriculum that is planned with your children’s needs as the starting point. We offer a range of experiences, both inside and outside, in line with the Foundation Stage curriculum. Our topics this year include Seasons, Journeys, Dinosaurs, Toys and Superheroes. We are going to be very busy having lots of FUN whilst we learn.
