Welcome to the Acorns class page - comprising our YR class.  Here you will find out about your child's learning and any key information that you need to be aware of.
Mrs Lawrence teaches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays with Miss Pedlar teaching on Thursdays and Fridays. Mrs Schofield is with the class every day.
Our PE day is Monday, however we do ask that PE kits are in school every day to allow for flexibility.
We visit the school library on Friday afternoons, and encourage the children to change their books weekly to develop their love of reading and experiencing a range of stories and text types.
We change reading books on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and ask that books are read at least twice before being changed. If your child seems confident in reading, then encouraging them to discuss events and characters is a good way to develop comprehension. It is just as important for children to understand what they are reading as it is to be able to read the words.
It is important that children have named coats all year round and sun cream and sun hats for the summer term to allow us to explore the outdoors in all weathers. Please provide a pair of welly boots to be kept in school along with a spare change of school clothes in their PE bag in case of messy or wet play.
April 2020: Acorn Parents, please find weekly 'Home Learning Packs' to guide you through learning at home in the 'Home Learning' section of this website. Materials to further support learning at home can be found on Google Classroom through the Wonde platform. 
Below is an article to help support parents of Early Years Foundation Stage children with home learning whilst social distancing. It emphasises how important play is for young children's development and the types of activities you can do at home to enhance your child's learning.
