Foundation 1



Children in Foundation 1 learn through both indoor and outdoor activities. The learning area is arranged in zones that include mark making (writing), reading den, maths, role-play (both domestic and whatever the children are interested in at this time), malleable (crucial for finger strengthening), ‘small world’, construction, workshop, sand, water, mud kitchen, building and climbing, and a sensory garden. The children are encouraged to choose their activity, select their resources and tidy up when they finish. This encourages their independence with inspiration, practical help and careful guidance given when necessary or requested. Children also work with adults on pre-planned/ targeted small group activities indoors and outdoors.
