In the Foundation Stage at Manor Community Primary School, we enjoy learning both with our friends and independently, and have fun exploring the different learning areas inside and outside the classroom. We take part in a range of activities, developing our knowledge and understanding of the world around us, exploring different ways of being creative, as well as developing our communication and language skills.

The children learn to read and spell using the Read Write Inc phonics scheme, and have daily fine motor and handwriting sessions to improve their handwriting. 

During our small group time we also learn a range of Numeracy skills.

The children are encouraged to become independent learners and thoroughly enjoy taking on the challenge of learning something new!
