Learning in the Foundation Stage

Children in Nursery and Reception classes (age 3 – 5 years) develop their learning and skills through a variety of activities, based largely around structured play situations, as well as gaining an understanding of the world around them.

Indoor and outdoor provision is carefully planned using the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance and encourages pupils to extend their intellectual, creative, physical, social and emotional development through first-hand experience in a wide range of situations. It is through play that children are able to explore and make sense of their world. We encourage all our pupils to become confident and independent learners, who ask lots of questions and learn how to find out the answers, whilst having a challenging, fun and enjoyable time.

Children follow a programme of work planned from the Early Years Foundation Stage. This comprises of seven areas of learning which are:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive arts and design

  • Welcome

    We offer you a warm welcome and thank you for showing an interest in Spring Grove Primary School.

    Spring Grove is a happy school with a positive and inclusive ethos, within which we aim to make everyone feel safe, secure and valued. We are proud of our diverse cultural community and encourage all children to achieve their personal best, academically and socially. We believe that children flourish when home and school work together. We encourage parents to become involved in their children’s education and the life of the school. We aim to work with parents and carers to develop caring attitudes, thoughtfulness, mutual respect, self discipline, self confidence and good manners alongside academic progress. We treat all of our pupils as unique individuals who will become independent learners and view their education as a positive experience.
