Kingfishers Class

Early Years Foundation Stage

On joining Kingfishers the children will work through the Early Years Foundation Stage continuing their Learning Journey already started in nursery or preschool. The children are encouraged to continue to engage in learning through play, using both the indoor and outdoor learning areas. At the same time, they will be getting used to general school life and progressing into the National Curriculum in Year 1.

We have very close links with our local nursery and preschool and these children visit the school regularly before they start.

All children are entitled to full-time early education from the September following their 4th birthday. Parents can request to defer the date their child starts school however, we find that usually children benefit from starting together in the September term.

Key Stage 1 – Year 1

Key Stage 1 begins in Year 1 and continues to the end of Year 2, when the children will be formally assessed along with all other children of this age nationally. 

In Year 1, children begin to experience more ‘traditional’ learning, but continue to learn in the more nurturing environment, sharing staff and activities between Reception and Years 1&2. We emphasise enjoyment of learning through our Creative Curriculum and cover all areas of the National Curriculum.
