Welcome to St Anne’s CE Primary Early Years
Early Years Foundation Stage
“Welcome to St Anne’s Early Years Foundation Stage. The Early Years Foundation Stage is made up of the Nursery and Reception Class who work closely together to provide an exciting and stimulating learning environment.
At St Anne’s we are passionate about children learning through play, and as much as possible, using real-life experiences to underpin their learning. We know that children learn best when their levels of wellbeing and engagement are high, so our team work collectively to ensure children feel safe, secure and valued. Our Nursery and Reception Class are not only a happy place for pupils but a welcoming place for families too”. Miss Ellen Taylor

We are all looking forward to teaching your child and working in partnership with you to support your child’s learning.
Our Nursery: We offer both full-time and part-time places. Children in Nursery learn through a mixture of short carpet sessions with focused intentions, self-directed play and planned small group interventions to support them in key areas. We welcome parents to come and share in their child’s learning at different points throughout the week as this helps us work in effective partnership with you to support your child.
Our Reception: Learning in our Reception Class is a balance of child-initiated play and adult led sessions. We believe that this leads to the best levels of progress and well-being for our children, and we ensure this is achieved by building on the children’s interests, motivation and developmental stage. We teach Phonics, Maths and Literacy daily in short sessions on the carpet. The remainder of the day is mainly self-directed, with children leading their learning through play and adults responding in order to move learning forward.
