Acorn Class Information

The Acorn Class timetable changes frequently to reflect children's interests and needs. Important activities to remember throughout the week:

Woodland Learning - Friday AM - Every Friday morning we will have outdoor learning in our woodland area. Please make sure your child is dressed in jogging bottoms/comfortable bottoms on this day and comes to school with a suitable coat for the weather we have this time of year. 

PE - Tuesday AM - Your child needs to come to school suitably dressed for an outdoor PE lesson every Thursday. Mr Dickenson will teach PE on Tuesday mornings. Please make sure all PE kit is clearly named (just in case!) 

This term our topic will be 'Winter Wonderland'. The curriculum map in the document list, shows what areas of the EYFS curriculum we will be focusing on in our learning this term. The activities we complete each week will follow the children's interests. 

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 via Parent Mail. 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.

Homework is set on a Friday is to be returned by the following Wednesday. Home learning challenges are set within our weekly newsletter. 

Reading - Reading at home is very important to your child's reading development. Please try to listen to your child read everyday for around 5/10 minutes. Please write a short comment every time you hear your child read in the blue reading record book. Your child will read to an adult once a week at least on their set reading day. Their books will also be changed on this day.
