Foundation Stage Unit
Welcome to the Foundation Stage Unit!
Our unit caters for children aged 2-5 years and is comprised of two bases, a reception base and a nursery base.
Our youngest children (2 year olds) access the Hedgehog room.
Our older nursery (3 years +) children access the Fox and Rabbit rooms.
The Reception children access the Squirrel and Owl rooms.
We are very fortunate to have access to our fabulous Forest School. The Reception and Nursery children visit the Forest every Friday Morning. Two year olds will visit the Forest regularly to ensure all part-time children are able to share in the experience.
To ensure that all children get the maximum time in the Forest, we would really appreciate your help in supporting your child to get changed into their Forest School clothes. We provide all children with a waterproof coat and trousers. Please supply your child with a name pair of wellington boots, to be kept in school if possible.

The theme in our Reception class this half term is Summer. We will be learning about the seaside, exploring under the sea and we may encounter some pirates! We will delve into a range of summer themed books including The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch, Dear Greenpeace and The Night Pirates. Together we will be creating an ice cream van and role playing buy and selling ice creams.
