Welcome to Acorns Class

This half term our class story is "Owl Babies".

Our three baby owls Sarah, Percy and Bill wake up to find they are are all alone in the forest. Where has Mummy gone? 

We will be talking about how the baby owls feel when Mummy is gone and when she comes back. We will be linking the story to our own feelings about being in Nursery.

We will be using natural materials to make nests, models of owls and mark make in different ways. We will talk about what the owls hear in the forest and link this with our own experiences of what we can hear around school. 

The children are enjoying taking charge of their learning and are increasingly confident to put their ideas to the test! It is lovely to see how independent our Acorns are becoming.

What We Do Each Day

Each day, children come to nursery and spend some time relaxing and getting ready to learn. We do activities that help us to develop skills that will prepare us for school and wider life, such as communication, language and social skills. We have plenty of time to play and explore the environment both indoors and outside. Every day we have a healthy snack during 'big talk' time. We do phonics and maths activities in small groups. Before home time, we sing songs and share a story together. 

Key Worker System

Every child has a key worker who works with them closely, helping them to settle into school and making sure that their needs are met. Key workers use your child's next steps to make sure that they fulfil their potential. Key workers work in partnership with families, providing them with support where necessary. They are responsibile for recording children's progress in their Learning Journey book. The Key Workers in Acorns class are:

Miss R Downs  (Class Teacher)
Miss C Hoek (Teaching Assistant)
Miss L Moran  (Teaching Assistant)
Mrs S Forbes (1-1 Teaching Assistant)
