Welcome to the Wren's Nest!
Early Years Foundation Stage
Hello! Thank you for popping over to visit our page!
There’s always LOTS to see and do over here as we’re always SO busy! We are based in a purpose built Foundation Stage unit at Wren Park and have a fantastic environment in which we grow and develop through structured, play-based, practical & hands-on learning. Our own safe & secure outdoor space provides so many opportunities for learning throughout the year and is available for all our ‘Owls’ to access daily – come rain or shine!
Our Reception year is made up of two registration groups & we are known as either a Tawny Owl or a Barn Owl. All our ‘owls’ have opportunity to work together at various times throughout the day and week, either indoors or out, taking part in either adult-led or child-initiated learning.
Our children access a broad and balanced EYFS curriculum, which covers 7 areas of learning. Within these areas of learning, there are three Prime Areas:
Communication and Language
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
and four Specific Areas:
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
We have a topic approach to teaching and learning which makes it meaningful to our owls. All our activities are based around a theme for each term and then broken down into smaller weekly topics.
