Welcome to Acorns!

The staff who support the children's learning in nursery are:
Mrs Palmer  Mrs Pirie  Mrs Burrows  Mrs Seaton   Miss Samango
Our lunchtime staff are Mrs Croxton and Miss Palmer

Our Topics for the Spring term will be Traditional Tales and Dinosaurs.

Traditional Tales:

This topic will enable the children to enjoy stories by talking about characters, settings and how stories can be constructed. The children will have the opportunity to discuss stories both in book form, through the internet story pages and from word of mouth. The stories we will cover will be Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs and the Enormous Turnip.


The children will begin Phase 2 of their letter and sounds development. This term we learn new letter sounds through the Jolly Phonics programme where each letter sound has an action. We will be sending home the pictures of the actions each week.


This term we are concentrating on teaching the children the recognition of the numbers 0-10 and above and encouraging the children to order their numbers.

This half term will be very busy!
The children are going to have lots of activities to do this half term plus the topic dinosaurs. The children will celebrate Pancake day, World Book Day, The Disney step Challenge, Comic relief and Easter.

During the topic we will be reading the books Dinosaurs Love Underpants! Cave Baby and  Harry and his Bucketful of Dinosaurs. We will also be looking at non fiction facts through books and the internet.

Can we remind ALL parents/carers that children need their own PE kit in school at ALL times.
