Mount Pleasant Primary School

Early Years Foundation Stage

Welcome to Early Years. 

In FS1 our Class Teacher is Mrs Sharples and our learning is supported by Miss Allen & Miss Zaib. 

In FS2 our Class Teachers are Mrs Parker-Knapper and Miss Lonsdale and our learning is supported by Mrs Britcliffe, Miss Lane & Miss Allen.


The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is based around seven areas of learning and development which are equally important and interconnected.  There are three prime areas which underpin the others igniting children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, developing their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, social and Emotional

These areas are strengthened and applied in four specific areas;

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design 

All children demonstrate different characteristics of learning, these are reported on at the end of the year.  These are:

  • Playing and exploring  - engagement
  • Active learning - motivation
  • Creative and thinking critically - thinking
