Class Information

At Ashwood Primary Foundation Unit, we celebrate learning through play. Our Foundation Unit is made up of F1 (ages 3-4) and F2 (ages 4-5). We also have a fantastic outdoor learning space that is available to both classes.

Here are a few bits of key information you need to know about Ashwood Foundation Unit:

  1. Your child will be taught Phonics every day to help them begin to read. We will do this through a programme called Bug Club Phonics. You can find more information about this programme in your welcome pack and on our school website.
  2. Your child can enjoy online phonics learning here https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0
  3. When your child receives their reading book, they will need to bring it to school every day.
  4. We are a reading school and your child will read with an adult frequently to monitor their progress.
  5. We will communicate your child’s achievements with you through Class Dojo. This is an app that you can download to your phone. You will be able to see photographs of the class learning journey here and your child will receive Dojo points.
  6. Dojo points can be spent in class on special rewards.
  7. Home learning is valued at Ashwood and we would love you to share this with us. Please upload any achievements to your child’s Dojo profile so we can celebrate these with you.
  8. On Friday’s we have a ‘Special Mention’ assembly. Your child may be chosen to take part in this assembly to celebrate their achievements with the rest of school. 

Areas of Learning

Our FS1 curriculum covers all aspects of the Early Years Framework and each area of learning is designed carefully to be progressive so that children are prepared with the necessary knowledge and skills to thrive in FS2.

Our curriculum is split into six engaging themes. Each theme introduces children to learning that is based around age appropriate and vocabulary rich texts. 

Our learning themes in FS1 are:

  • Autumn 1: Can you sing me a song?
  • Autumn 2: Who am I?
  • Spring 1: Do all stories have happy endings?
  • Spring 2: What makes a good pet?
  • Summer 1: What lives in my garden?
  • Summer 2: How many pebbles will I find on a beach?
