Foundation Stage Curriculum



There are three prime areas of learning which are fundamental and underpin the rest of the curriculum. These are Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Communication & Language, and Physical Development. Then there are four specific areas of learning – Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World (science, IT, humanities, RE etc), and Expressive Arts & Design. In each of these areas there are objectives for children to be taught and assessed upon in age bands roughly correlating with the year in which they become 4 years old (Pre-School) and the year in which they become 5 years old (the Reception Year).
