Hello and welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage at St Swithun's school. Our vibrant unit is made up of two classes. We have our Caterpillar class who are our foundation 1 children and our Butterfly class who are our foundation 2 children. These children are registered and have differentiated sessions separately but come together for our child initiated play sessions. 

 

We have two teachers in the Early Years; Mrs Mitchinson who teaches on a Mon, Tue, Wed with Mrs Briers and Mrs Oxborough who teaches on a Wed, Thur, Fri with Mrs Myers. 

 

If you would like to speak with us we are available every morning at 8.45am on the main school playground or 3.10pm in the Foundation Stage playground. 

EYFS Intent:

At St-Swithun’s Primary Academy our foundation stage aims to deliver an ambitious curriculum centred around high quality teaching and learning experiences. Children are encouraged to actively learn through playing and exploring, allowing them to think creatively and critically across all areas of the curriculum. We strive to give children the very best start in life and support needed to enable them to fulfil their full future potential and success. A rich, vibrant, positive learning environment enables us to develop a lifelong love of learning.
