The Early Years Foundation Stage is based on the recognition that children learn best through play and active learning. 

At Forestdale we developed this around the 4 themes that underpin the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Have a look at what we have been up to ... .

F2's topic this term is 'food' and this week we have been learning about fruit and reading the story 'Oliver's fruit salad'. We had a fruit tasting, we tried pineapple, watermelon, grapefruit and lime.  Following this we then made our own pieces of fruit out of salt dough and then decorated them.

We enjoyed a very windy afternoon today.

We made some kites and took them outside to investigate the effects of the wind on their kites and their bodies.

Here are some wonderful quotes from the children:

 

Yasmiin "I was running around with my kite and it went in my mouth!"

Amara "I was running and my kite was floating on my leg!"

Aidan "The wind blew me away.  I fell over then my kite flew very higher and higher.  My kite went down and down and wouldn't go up and up!"

Lillie B "The kite blew in my face and it blew on to the grass!"

Scarlett "The kite blew on my face on my forehead and then it blew on the grass!"

We would love to hear any comments you may have on the photos of activities we share with you.  Please follow the link to our contact us page and leave a comment in our guest book.

 

Foundation Stage Ethos

 

 In the foundation Stage we encourage children to make choices, problem solve and think critically.  Through continuous provision we encourage children to become independent learners and nurture their interests through enhancements within the environment.  Staff observe and record children’s achievements, and work together to ensure next steps are taken. Each child’s progress is recorded in their Learning Journey which is shared with both parents, children and the Senior Leadership team.
