Welcome to our Foundation Stage! 

St. Joseph’s is a happy, caring and nurturing place where we will lay the foundations of your child’s future success. 

We follow the children’s interests and use these to ensure our classroom environment is set up for learning and developing at the children’s own pace. Topics include Me and my Community, Once Upon a Time and Dinosaurs! 

A mixture of child initiated and adult led learning such as for phonics and maths ensures all children have access to a balanced curriculum which focusses on the seven areas of learning:  

  • Communication and language.
  • Physical development. 
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development. 
  • Literacy.
  • Mathematics.
  • Understanding the World.
  • Expressive Arts and Design.
