Our unit is made up of 3 classroom bases:

Holly • Maple  • Oak


• Every base has its own drop off point in the morning

and collection point at the end of the day.


• Each base has its own teacher and classroom assistant

to greet you and your child every morning, give out

messages, answer questions and listen to concerns.


• Reception (F2) home bases are Holly and Maple;

Nursery (F1) home base is Oak.

Foundation Stage Unit


We provide a balance of child initiated, small or large group planned activities, where adults identify particular skills, knowledge and attitudes your child needs to develop. This means children can make choices and suggest the focus for their play.


• Letters, sounds and numbers are taught daily in groups.


• At Marpool we have several wonderful outdoor spaces.


• We make the most of our environment and spend lots of time learning outdoors.


• We enjoy planting, growing and harvesting our own fruit and vegetables which we use for our school lunches.



• Apples grow in our orchard and we love using them to make apple crumble.


• We look after of all of our animals. We feed and groom the goats. We collect eggs from our chickens and sometimes use them to make scrambled eggs!


• We hatched our very own ducklings and watched them grow.


• At Forest School we climb our trees, toast marshmallows on the bonfire and work together with our friends.
