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.

Thankfully (!) the weather cleared up and  Foundation were able to take part in the field events this morning. The 4 events that all children took part in and were awarded points for were as follows:

-Beanbag throw

-Target shot at goal

-Standing long jump


The Foundation team were all very proud of the children – they all listened carefully to instructions, tried their best and most importantly had lots of fun!

Foundation’s Special Visitors

Monday, July 10, 2017

We were very lucky today to have our grown up chicks come back to visit us today. They are now very cheeky and very pecky but have grown up into beautiful hens and cockerels! Thank you so much to the Barbers for bringing them in for us to see again.
