Summary Cadle Primary School in Swansea is a pilot school for the new Foundation Phase. This programme looks at how they are encouraging language and literacy in their reception classes. Teachers Wendy Taylor and Lynette Erasmus are doing lots of activities to encourage speaking and listening. Under the FP, children only begin writing when they are developmentally ready to do so.In the programme, Welsh Minister for Education Jane Davidson explains the aims of the Foundation Phase and why she feels it's important for Wales to have a new early years curriculum. A key aspect to the Foundation Phase is lower adult to pupil ratios. It is now 1-8 in nursery and reception and 1-15 in Years 1 and 2. The teachers discuss how support staff are now more involved with the childrens learning
