The Acorn team would like to welcome you to the class page. On this page you will find information on upcoming events, weekly routines and useful documents that may help to support your child.
In the event of school closure or self-isolation, please use this page to keep track of work that the children can do at home. Please see the 'learning at home and information for parents' document below for more guidance and keep updated with the 'lesson idea overview' document which will be updated weekly.
Please check tapestry for updates/stories/videos from teachers.
Here are some useful links and Apps for Acorn class to continue their learning at home:
Paint Number- A free app to develop children’s mathematical skills as well as a fun, mindfulness activity using a ‘paint by numbers’ idea.
Happy Colour- Another free app to develop children’s mathematical skills as well as a fun, mindfulness activity using a ‘paint by numbers’ idea.
Weekly time table for Acorn class.
We do PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday. We request that PE kits are kept in school at all times, just in case this is altered for any reason. It is also useful if a spare set of clothes is needed. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.
Every Wednesday afternoon we have our Welly Wednesday. This involves visiting a natural place in our local environment and basing our learning around an aspect or opportunity that couldn't be accessed in the classroom. This does include our nature garden where we regularly use the fire pit. If possible could children wear their own Welly Wednesday clothes to save school clothes being spoilt. If not an overall will be provided.
On Friday the class will visit the computer suite. The main interactive tool the class use is Purple Mash. The children will learn to use basic programmes that may be vital for later learning and life.
Reading books and records.
Children will all receive a reading book and record as well as some key words we would like them to learn. Please read with your child as regularly as you can. Aim to develop word recognition using phonics, sight reading of key words and fluency when reading. Enjoy the story and ask lots of questions or even act it out!
