Welcome to Acorns Class

Spring Term

This half term our class story is "Were going on a bear hunt".

In this story a family go on a bear hunt, they encounter different environments such as grass, a river, mud, a forest and a snow storm. The family have to decide what to do; they can't go over, they can't go under so they have to go through each one. Each time they say they are not scared until they find a cave. When they go inside the cave they find a bear! The family are not so brave anymore and race back to their house where they hide under the bed deciding that they are not going to go on a bear hunt again! On the last page it shows the bear walking along on it's own looking sad. 

Through the term we will be learning the story and different actions so that we can tell the story without the book. We will be drawing story maps to help us remember and later in the term we will even write our own Bear hunt book with different words! 

We will talk about how the family feel as they start their bear hunt and how this changes at the end when they are hiding under the bed. We will explore ideas about how the bear feels and why he followed the family out of the cave. We will relate how the bear feels with how we might feel if our friends are not being kind or don't let us play. We will talk about how we can be a good friend and encourage the children to share, and include others.

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)
Mrs S Forbes (1-1 Teaching Assistant)
