The Foundation Phase Curriculum is a statutory framework in Wales for pupils
aged 3 to 7. The Foundation Phase is about enhancing the learning experiences
which enable children to be creative, imaginative and to have fun while learning.
All children will be given lots of opportunities to explore the world around them
This will allow them to understand how things work, through practical activities
both indoors and outdoors, which are fun, enjoyable and relevant to their
development stage. The Foundation Phase places greater emphasis on
experimental learning, active involvement and developing each child’s skills and
