Forestdale Primary School

Believe - Aspire - Excel


Remember to be on time - 8:50.... if you can get here at 8.40am even better - that is when learning starts!


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.


Welcome to Nursery!

Nursery Sessions run from Monday to Wednesday 8.40am-3.10pm



**Monday is Nursery P.E. day** 

Children are able to come in wearing joggers, leggings and velcro trainers or pumps.  No laces please!

This half term…


Nursery Rhyme Topic

We will be exploring nursery rhymes, learning to sing them and do the actions.  We will be discussing new vocabulary from rhymes and finding out which is our favourite nursery rhyme!


All About Me Topic

During this topic we will be learning about what makes us, us, our preferences, similarities and celebrating our differences! We will be looking at our own life story and what makes us special. We would love to see any family photos and photos of the children as babies so that we can help the children make sense of their journey so far! We will gladly take copies of precious photos. 


My Five Sense Topic

We will be exploring natural materials and new experiences with sight, smell, taste, hearing and feel! 


We will be reading:
