Learning for life with Jesus

Foundation Stage

During our time in the EYFS, we learn the importance and joy of being part of the St Thomas' community by joining in with school routines and events.  By the end of the Reception year, we are confident, independent and firmly established within school life.


Curriculum Subjects


During the day we learn through play, exploring and discovering from all the learning areas in our classroom.


These seven learning areas include:


Prime Areas - Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, and Communication and Language


Specific Areas - Numeracy, Literacy, Understanding the World, and Expressive Arts and Design


Reading is a very important part of the Early Years curriculum, so we spend a lot of time enjoying listening to and joining in with a variety of stories. 


A strong grasp of phonics helps us to become independent readers.


Each term, we focus our learning on a particular theme:




Autumn 1



Autumn 2


Spring 1

My community


Spring 2

The community around me and in the UK

Summer 1

The big wide world

Summer 2

Beyond the big wide world
