Acorn Class Information
The Acorn Class timetable changes frequently to reflect children's interests and needs. Important activities to remember throughout the week:
Tuesday am: PE - PE will be on Tuesday mornings and will take place in the school hall. Please make sure your child has PE shorts, shirt and plimsolls, all of which should be clearly labelled.
Thursday pm: Forest School - All children should come into school with long, comfortable bottoms (jogging bottoms etc) and be appropriately dressed for the weather. A waterproof coat should be brought into school everyday as much of our learning takes place outside. All children should have a pair of named wellies which will be kept on our welly rack in school.
Friday: Library - Please make sure your child's library book is in their bookbag each Friday so that the book can be changed.
Tuesday pm : Parent drop-in - A chance for children to share their recent learning within the classroom with their grown ups. Parents are also welcome to look at their child's learning journal during this time.
The curriculum map below (in the document list) shows what we will be focusing on in our learning this term.
Friday is show and tell day in Acorn Class. To make sure every child has a chance to talk about their special items, we run show and tell by rota. Please find a copy of this term's rota in the document list below.
Every Friday a class newsletter is sent home. This gives you an overview of what we have been learning throughout the past week and tells you about anything you may need to know for next week.
We know and value that your child's learning and development does not stop at the end of the school day, but very much continues and grows when they are at home. Home learning challenges will be set each Friday via our class newsletter. Please return a 'home learning comment note' telling us how your child got on with the challenge, as your comments will be added to your child's Learning Journal.
Homework is to be returned by the following Friday.
