Acorn 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Acorn Class
Hello my little Acorns!
I hope you are as excited as I am for you to experience your first year in our wonderful school. In Acorn Class we aim to engage, immerse and stimulate children and their learning through a play based curriculum. We aim to develop each child individually and in all aspects of their learning.
We will make sure all of the children's needs are planned for and supported to allow each child to reach their full learning potential. This will be done through adult directed teaching but also through child led learning. This will enable the children to become architects of their own learning.
In Acorn class, we aim to promote and foster a love for reading and stories. A lot of the learning in Acorn class will therefore be done through a range of exciting and engaging texts that help the children's imagination flourish.
Stay and Play...
This year you have the opportunity to be a part of your child's learning in school. Our morning Stay and Play sessions provide the chance for you to help settle your children in to class as they get straight down to learning with our Stay and Play activities. Our gates open at 8:45am and parents are welcome to stay until 9:00am.
Fridays provide the opportunity for your child to choose a book from school and take it home with them to read. These will need to be brought back by the following Wednesday. In addition to this, when they have acquired the skills to read, they will bring home a school ‘Book Bag Book’ reading book. We use ‘Go Read’ to record all the books that go home.
I am super excited to teach my little Acorns PE this year. Our PE sessions will begin on Wednesday 14th September and then will run every Wednesday morning. Please make sure your child's kit is ready and in school for the first session. Blue t-shirt and shorts will be worn. Pumps (indoors) or trainers (outdoors) will be worn on their feet. When doing PE outside, a blue tracksuit would be required. All PE kits will be left in the cloakroom until the end of the term.
My little Acorns are always outside, so please provide a warm coat, wellies and weather suit for wet days. All wellies will be stored on our outdoor welly stand.
