Welcome to Acorns


Reception is an exciting time in a child’s school life and we are committed to providing the best possible introduction to learning. We follow the Early Years Curriculum which is play based in a creative, vibrant manner in both our inside and outside environments. We work closely with parents and pre-schools prior to the start of the Autumn term to ensure a smooth transition. Children learn best when they feel happy and safe and their emotional wellbeing is paramount.


In the Autumn term, we observe the children closely to match learning to their interests and needs, and these are then incorporated into our planning alongside the other topics we follow through the year. Children learn letter sounds through the Jolly Phonics scheme which links actions to sounds and has very catchy songs to support their learning. As the school year progresses, our literacy and maths teaching becomes more structured in order to prepare the children for future school life.


Children are able to access their own learning and are taught how to use items safely. Healthy snacks and drinks are always available and children are taught how to be self-sufficient in selecting their food choice and clearing up after themselves.


We visit the local Church to celebrate Harvest Festival and put on performances to parents and the rest of the school at Christmas. In the summer term, Safari Stu comes to visit with his wonderful collection of animals.



This year our topics have been:


Autumn 1: Do you want to be friends?

Autumn 2: Why do squirrels hide their nuts?

Spring 1: What is a reflection?

Spring 2: Will you read me a story?

Summer 1: Why do ladybirds have spots?

Summer 2: Are we there yet?
