In the Early Years, play is an essential element of learning and is positively encourage within both the indoor and outdoor environments. Quality first interactions are part of our quality first teaching which allows children to develop their language, creativity, and thinking skills. Pupils in nursery have daily inputs linked to the different areas of learning including phonics which focuses on developing their ability to listen, copy and distinguish between different sounds. Pupils in Reception have daily inputs for phonics, maths, as well as other areas of learning.
Moat House Primary School Foundation Stage aims to provide a carefully designed curriculum that is both exciting, provides diverse, rich and memorable opportunities from which children can learn and ensures coverage and progression. Through this we hope to raise pupils aspirations, promote a sense of pride in personal achievements, provide a purpose and relevance for learning and help every child find strengths and interests.
