At Carrington Primary School, we have a Foundation Stage Unit where Reception and Nursery children play and work together. Children learn through a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. These include whole class (carpet time) and group activities as well as challenges that have been set for children to complete independently. The learning environment is arranged in zones that include a writing area, a workshop and a Maths area. However, children can move resources from one area to another in order to complete activities. Throughout the day there are times when children have access to outdoor learning, including water play, sand play and building with large construction equipment.

Reading Books

Children read in a group three times a week. We change children’s reading books every Friday and they take home the book they have read in class. Reading bags need to be brought into school every day.
