Intent

At St Thomas Aquinas RC Primary School, we are committed to providing our children with the best possible start to their school life. We believe the experiences that a child has in the first two years at our school is vital in developing skills, attitudes to learning and values that build on the early experiences in pre school settings.

Impact

The impact of the EYFS curriculum is reflected when well rounded, happy, resilient and confident children transition into Year 1 with the foundations firmly in place ready to continue their learning journey.

Our Learning...

Hamster Houses

Creating hamster houses with Junk modelling resources.

Creation walk

We are learning about what God created.

We also visited the prayer garden to say thank you to God and sang the song, 'God made the stars'.

P.E.

The children showed good independence skills getting changed for P.E. for the first time.

We are so proud of how well they responded to instructions and rules for the first time being in the hall for P.E. We all had a lot of fun!

Well done Foundation One. 

Extraordinary Experiences

Foundation One have enjoyed two of our 'Extraordinary Experiences'. Going on an Autumn walk and Taking our own photographs using an IPAD. We had so much fun finding and exploring Autumn objects.
