Foundation Stage Curriculum

At Forest Primary our Foundation Stage follows a child-led learning approach, where the children influence the topics they wish to learn about based on their common interests. Independence, intrinsic motivation and a desire to learn are some of the skills children acquire from this style of learning.

The children have access to a large outdoor space, nature area and shared KS1 classroom for expressive arts and design. 

As the children learn through play the staff in the EYFS are highly skilled at observing and planning the children’s next steps in learning. All learning is recorded using an app called Evidence for Learning and this is shared with parents at the end of each term.
