EYFS Hockney

Welcome to Class 1

Our Foundation Stage Class is made up of mixed age Nursery and Reception children. A well planned play-based, creative curriculum is key to our children's learning. Emphasis is placed on active outside learning all year round. Our outside areas have  been developed to allow for a broad coverage of all curriculum areas. A highlight of the week is 'Wellie Wednesday', when we don our boots and head off to explore the local environment. The small class size ensures that adults are able to work with the children in a relevant and appropriate context that matches the different needs of young children.
