It is a relief to hear Leighton Andrews (Education Minister in Wales) celebrate the successful roll out of the Foundation Phase for all children aged 3-7 years in Wales. The full article can be found at http://wales.gov.uk/newsroom/educationandskills/2011/110906foundationphase/?version=1&lang=en .
We very much believe in the principles of the Foundation Phase and the opportunity it offers our young learners. From a personal experience, I saw the impact it had on the learners in my class – the increased motivation, engagement, confidence, learners leading the learning, independence and interdependence.
A carefully designed ‘Foundation Phase’ experience has the ability to make a positive impact on every child. Lets hope it is here to stay!
