eady for school

Our Foundation Setting here at Bramble Academy has links with the wider school and provides a smooth transition to the next stage of your child’s learning. We endeavour to equip your child with the necessary skills to prepare them to be a lifelong learner and to move seamlessly through school. Foundation 1 and 2 share our amazing outdoor learning space and join together for special events on a regular basis.


Aims

We aim to make all aspects of learning fun! We provide children with a range of exciting learning opportunities which build on the skills they already have and enable them to develop the characteristics they need to become an effective learner. Children learn through first-hand experience, play-based activities and teacher guided focused groups.


Maths, Reading and Writing

Whilst maths, reading and writing are all essential aspects of your child’s learning we are committed to a holistic approach to educating children within the Foundation Stage at Bramble Academy. We place great emphasis on British Values and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of the children within our care.
Learning in the Foundation Stage is divided into the seven areas of Learning. These are:
Physical Development
Personal Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Mathematics
Literacy
Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design


Beliefs and Ambition

We strongly believe in developing exceptional learning habits, which become part of daily life within the Foundation Stage at Bramble Academy. As part of the Evolve Trust values we encourage children to be resilient learners who are willing to take risks, take on challenges and thrive. We believe all children can learn; if children cannot learn from our teaching, we adapt our teaching accordingly; this is our promise of integrity to you.


Learning

This takes place through a variety of exciting topics throughout year. We also encourage a child initiated approach allowing each child to explore their individual interests through our inspirational continuous provision and stunning outdoor learning environment. We immerse all children in early phonics; this is taught using Jolly Phonics songs, interactive games and following the Ruth Miskin, Read, Write Inc programme. We foster a love of reading through the use of high quality texts, a range of Traditional Tales and Nursery Rhymes as well as our beautiful book corner.


Every Child Matters

Your child and their learning are what matters here at Bramble Academy. We build on what your child already knows and ensure progression through the ages and stages of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Links between parents and school are vitally important to us. We encourage an open flow of communication between school and home so that you, as parents, really feel in touch with your child’s development and part of the school community here at Bramble Academy.
