Welcome to Foundation Stage at Oaklands!

A busy and enjoyable year lies ahead for all of our children. We will help your child settle into school life and develop a love of learning through engaging learning opportunities in and outside the classroom.


Phonics is a way of teaching reading and writing where your child is taught to read and write letters or groups of letters by saying the sound(s) they represent. Children can then start to read words by blending the sounds together to make a word, and writing them by segmenting.

At Oaklands we teach phonics every day. Your child will come home with a pack which shows which sounds we have learned. Please help them to practise reading and writing them.

The table below indicates the phonics stage and book band colour your child is expected to be on in each year group:


Please share a book with your child on a daily basis as this really helps to build enjoyment of stories and understanding of the wider world. We have made a short video on how you can support your child at home.

We have an exciting curriculum that is designed to inspire and enthuse our children. Take a look at our curriculum leaflets to see all the wonderful things we will learn each term!
