Welcome to Swallowfield Foundation

Garden FoundationOur ‘Foundation’ classes are for our children who are in their Reception year, from when they start school until they enter Year 1 in the September after they are 5.
The early years of a child’s life are an important stage when the foundations for future development are established. At school, in the foundation stage, we foster the child’s own interests and offer activities that extend, enrich and develop potential. Activities and first hand experiences are the key to learning and lay the foundations for their further education.

Young children learn as they play. Attitudes, skills and knowledge are acquired as the child strives to understand his world.

Foundation Christmas Crafts for Christmas Around the World Day

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

We had a very exciting Christmas Craft day in Foundation creating lots of ‘Christmasy’ things and getting rather messy! (Just how we like it). We made a melted snowman treat and animal finger puppets and got messy with homemade ‘snow’ play dough. Have a look at the fun we had below

Foundation Ice Skating

Thursday, December 14, 2017









Foundation have had a FANTASTIC time at Frost in Woburn Sands today taking part in festive ice skating.

The children were so bold and brave on the ice with lots of them not wanting any grown up support! They also remembered their manners and were very sensible and careful on our journey to and from our venue.

Another big thanks to the PTFA, who from our Coffee Afternoon were able to help us keep the price of the skating incredibly reasonable.

Have a look at all the fun we had in our photos:
