Within the Foundation Stage classroom, children are welcomed into our school tribe - the Tribe of Delabole - where they are supported to become, as we call them, Learning Warriors. Learning Warriors use our whole school Learning Toolkit - eight essential skills or qualities for learning - to challenge themselves and question the world around them. We in Early Years believe that these qualities are essential to promote effective, independent lifelong learning, and these skills are transferable to new experiences as the children grow up through their school and beyond.

Early Years provides every child with a series of carefully designed, unique experiences in which to learn through play and exploration. Alongside taught adult directed elements, the children's interests play a vital role in sculpting our learning journey throughout the year.

Each term, the whole school delves into an Enquiry - or Big Question - which Early Years practitioners adapt to meet the needs of our children and tap into their interests.
