But while 'I forgot my keys at home' sounds quite natural, I'd hear 'I've forgotten my keys' more frequently. Especially if it's in the morning and you're on the way out the door. Right after leaving the house, I don't think you'd say 'I forgot my keys at home'.
But again, that's just me.
I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
