Forest Way School

Foundation & Key Stage 1 (3-7 Years)

We are lively, enthusiastic and extremely busy classes where every day is exciting and different!

Foundation & Key Stage 1 (3-7 Years)

Our classes deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Key Stage 1 curriculum to our youngest pupils. We appreciate that children learn and develop in different ways and different rates, so we a have multisensory approach to learning where pupils can engage and interact at their own level. We follow a structured timeline which is displayed in the classroom preparing pupils for their day ahead and giving the pupils structure, routine and the opportunity to comment on what they are participating in.

We cover the 7 strands of the EYFS through planned developmental play using work stations around the classroom where adults are placed to encourage independent, spontaneous child initiated learning. We also cover the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum through topic based activities and tasks that recognise children’s interests and thirst for knowledge as they develop their understanding of the world around them.

Outdoor learning is a key element of every child’s day and we enjoy sharing play times, where children are encouraged to interact and communicate with each other through team games, construction activities and using our vast range of bikes! We also particularly enjoy going to the woodland area and multisensory garden where we allow the children freedom to explore their natural environment and observe their surroundings.

Our pupils enjoy a link with a neighbouring primary school, where they are given the opportunity to play and interact with their peers. We also enjoy out of school experiences such as visiting our local fire station, Drayton Manor Park and Conkers.
