Acorn F.S.


Welcome to Acorn Class 2016/17!

“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

Please take a look at the links above to give you more information about our Foundation stage class, our current learning, how we learn and the assessment methods we use.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us

Where is our learning taking us this week?

Welcome back!


The children have been busy continuing their work on Jack and the Beanstalk and have written their own versions of the story. They have also been having a go at simple computer coding by following instructions and programming a beebot to reach the giant’s castle.



The children have also been studying daffodils. They have created observational paintings using water colours and observational drawings using oil pastels and chalks. They studied the daffodils using magnifying glasses
