What Is Happening In Summer Term?


Welcome to our third and final term in Acorn Class!

We can not believe it is our final term in Acorn Class. This term will be all about getting you ready for Reception or becoming an N2 in Nursery, whilst continuing to have lots of fun both inside and outside the classroom. 

This terms projects will be an Arts focus, looking at music, art and dance. We will have several mini projects to learn about including plants, minibeasts and farm animals. 

Our key questions will be:

"How can change be good? "

For more details please see our Project Letter.

Acorns Environment

Our Nursery has had a little makeover over the Summer holidays.

We have had new lighting, decoration and a rearrange of the furniture.

We can't wait for the children's work to decorate our walls!

Here is a sneak peek!

Our first Talk for Writing story:

Hungry caterpillar

The first story we will be sharing in class is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This book is about the lifecycle of a caterpillar who hatches from an egg, eats lots of food before making a house around itself called a cocoon. At the end of the story it emerges as a beautiful butterfly. 


If you would like to hear the story you can watch a retelling of it on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75NQK-Sm1YY

Communication and Language

Communication and Language is one of the Prime Areas of Learning in the Early Years Curriculum.

We teach the three aspects of this, Speaking, Understanding and Listening and Attention throughout all of our adult directed and child initiated sessions. Communication and Language skills are important for learning across the whole curriculum so it is vital that we get this right for our children. 

If you would like to see the expectations for your child's Communication and Language skills please see the attached "Small Talk" document. 

We may talk to you in the first half-term if we believe your child could benefit from some extra support from Warrington's Speech and Language services. Please feel free to ask any member of the Early Years team if you have any questions.
