Respect - Collaborate - Grow



Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage!


Miss Chana and Mrs Disney welcome you to the Foundation Stage Class Page.


In Foundation Stage, we aim to create a love of learning which will continue to develop as your child moves through Dorney School. Through purposeful play and activities, each unique child will constantly grow and develop into lifelong learners. This is an incredible first year of school for children and we hope to make it a memorable one!

We have so many exciting topics this year that will help them explore, discover and make sense of the world around them. Not to forget some delightful milestones such as their first school Nativity, first school trip, first sports day…and so many more!


Mrs Disney and I are fortunate to be spending the year with these amazing children!


We will keep you posted on information and general news, on this class page.


We look forward to a successful year.


Warm regards,

Miss Chana
