Acorn Class – Foundation Stage


Welcome to Acorn Class 2017/18!

“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. This is a recent display that we have put up to remind the adults in our school that trying to do things for themselves and solving problems is one of the best ways the children learn.

Their learning is focused around the three prime areas and four specific areas of the Early Years Curriculum.

These are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical development
  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Where is our learning taking us this week?


The children have loved learning about Chinese New Year. They have made noodles, tried using chop sticks, had a go at Chinese writing, sang songs and learned about Chinese New Year traditions and customs.
