Welcome to Acorn Class!
Welcome to the Acorn Class! We are a mixed pre-school and reception class and cater for children between the ages of 3-5 years-old. In the Acorn class we fully implement the EYFS framework where learning through play is at the heart of our curriculum and 'Laughter and Learning' is our ethos. Mrs Fielder is the class teacher and Mrs Taylor, Mrs Worrall and Miss Cotton are the class assistants.
Our current topic is 'Fairies, Dragons and Knights'. In this first topic of the year we will be focusing on settling in, learning the school rules and values while exploring feelings and emotions, people who help us as well as the Royal Family and Britsh values linked to our topic. We send home a topic fact sheet about the our learning which includes topic tasks, key topic vocabularly, books and questions that we will be focusing on in our topic. You can also see it here too by clicking the links below.
We have PE on Monday and Thursday afternoons. This term we are developing our PE skills in gymastics and basic ball skills.
We usually hold a Book and Bisuit on a Wednesday morning at 9.00-9.30am and welcome all parents or carers to come and read a story with us and where you can support your child to choose his/her library book to take home and share with you.
New class reading books are given twice a week for the reception children and we encourage these class readers to be read with daily at home to support your child's developing reading skills. Reading books from RWI scheme will also be sent home for the phonic stage of reading for your child.
Home learning activities to support your child's learning will also be uplaoded to Class Dojo weekly. These alternating activities will support the maths, literacy as well as daily phonics and letter formation skills we are practising in class. Throughout the year we will be holding a Phonics and Reading workshop as well as a Early maths workshop. In these we will discuss how we teach these early skills and how these important skills can be further supported at home.
We will regularly update our Class Dojo page and your child's portfolio on the Dojo app. Your child will receive Dojo points for their efforts at school, such as taking pride in their work, working together as a team, homework and reading tasks completed and being ambitious in thier learning. We will also be uploading pictures and observations of your child weekly to your child's portfolio on Class Dojo and encourgae you to add comments, photos and videos of activities your child likes to do at home. We love to see them!
Mrs Fielder, Mrs Worral, Mrs Taylor and Miss Cotton.
