Acorn Class – Foundation Stage/Year 1
Welcome to Acorn Class 2021/2022!
“We are looking forward to sharing our adventures with you!”
Each day the children have lots of opportunities to explore, imagine, create and learn through their own play as well time with an adult to learn new skills and knowledge and apply these through practical play based activities. Wherever possible our planning will take account of the children’s developing interests.
We want to encourage the children to become independent learners and thinkers.
Their learning is focused around the three prime areas and four specific areas of the Early Years Curriculum.
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Physical development
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design

Welcome to the Acorn Class home learning zone
Summer term 2020.
As we work through the Summer term we have provided you with a set of daily activities. Each day there will be a power point with lots of activities including writing and maths ideas. This will follow a similar structure to that of our school day. It is not intended to be followed rigidly as we appreciate that there are lots of other things going on at home. The daily packs will remain on the website so you can access them when you need to.
Y1 children – The pack includes a rainbow tracker that will carry over the week as it would in class. This provides extra little activities linked to the week’s learning and can be dipped into as and when you wish. Please note that your child only needs to do the phonics activity.
EYFS – Little and often remains the key. During the day the children are used to lots of free ‘play’ time – we call it ‘choosing for learning’. Small world play, construction, singing, dancing, play dough, cooking, playing board games, chatting, drawing, making activities and being physically active are all valuable learning opportunities. Don’t underestimate the everyday activities that you do with your children.
We would love to see their efforts so please take a photo and email it to our class iCloud account. email@example.com
