Nursery & Foundation

Holly Primary School-12

Welcome to Nursery

Our Foundation Stage begins with ‘F1’. They receive fifteen hours of education; either five mornings, or five afternoons starting the term after their third birthday. ‘F1’ is also be referred to as Nursery. In September of the academic year that children have their fifth birthday, they begin ‘F2’. These children form our Reception Class and attend school full time.

Foundation Fun Autumn 1 2017

We would like to welcome everyone to the Foundation Unit and hope that we will share lots of happy times.

If you read about F1 children, these children are part-time (morning and afternoon) and sometimes are called Nursery children.  If you read about F2 children, these children are full-time and are sometimes called Reception.

Could you please ensure that anything your child brings into school has their name in.  This is very important as children need to be able to look after their own belongings.

F2 children need a PE kit in school at all times.  We will send it home during half-term for you to wash and it needs to be back in school on their first day back.  Our PE day is Monday and it would be a great help if your children could dress themselves at home and learn how to turn their clothes the right way around.  We usually show the children to put their arm down their sleeve/trouser leg and pull it back through.

F2 children will be taking part in Forest Fun sessions on Thursdays whatever the weather so will need wellies, coats and warm clothing on this day.  We provide waterproof trousers for the children to wear over their clothes.  If anyone would like to help us on our Forest Fun session please let us know.

Mrs Cope’s F1 children will be doing Forest Fun sessions on Tuesday afternoon so will also need their wellies, coats and warm clothing.

Miss Sanders’ and Mrs Smith’s F1 children will not be going into the forest this term and we will let you know when they are settled and safe to enjoy this activity.

Our topic this half-term is finding out about ourselves and our families.  Please could you send a photograph in of your family together so that we can talk about special family members.

We will let you know in the reading diaries of anymore work at home we’d like you to share with your children.

If you would like your child to receive a free drink of milk during their school day please register online at

Thank you for your patience whilst the builders build our new classroom.

We all want the children to be happy and enjoy coming to school.  If we can help in anyway with any worries then please don’t hesitate to come and talk to us.

Thank you,

Foundation Team
