3 Transition from Foundation Stage Morning sessions will be slightly more formal than Foundation, with an emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy. The learning in the afternoons in Year 1 will be very similar to the foundation stage.Throughout the week your child will work with the teacher in a small group on a focused learning activity.At other times of the day your child will be learning through activities that are independent and can be accessed at their own level, providing the correct level of challenge. These activities will be split into 7 areas:Explain ‘quality time’ during focused activity. Discuss table activities and progression throughout year.
