Acorn - EYFS

Welcome to Acorn Class!

We are looking forward to welcoming Orange group and Lilac group EYFS children back to school on Monday 8th June.  As their thoughts return to school we thought this PowerPoint may help start off the transition.

Acorn Class have been busy creating, making, building and learning so much at home on their home learning adventures. Here are some of the things they have been up to. Well done Acorn Class families - you are doing a great job!

Home Learning Support from 20th March

Our physical school building may be closed, but it'll take more than that to stop our learning journey!


Here is a list of activities for you to work on at home.  Remember, just do what you can, and feel free to contact us and send us messages through Tapestry or our class email address:

A bit about us...


Class Teachers - Mrs Jacqueline Özcan from Monday to Thursday and Mrs Esther Grove on a Friday.

Teaching Assistant - Ms Smith Monday to Friday


Class Overview

Welcome to Acorn Class! We can be found learning busily near the main entrance to the school in Room 1. Our class teachers are Mrs Ozcan and Mrs Grove. Mrs Ozcan teaches us from Monday to Thursday and Mrs Grove teaches the class on a Friday. On a Tuesday afternoon Mrs Tarring works with the class while Mrs Ozcan is preparing for the next week's learning. Ms Smith supports our learning throughout the week.



We deliver a curriculum based on the framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

We cover seven areas of learning and development which are implemented through planned, purposeful play, both outdoors and in. This learning is developed through rich, challenging learning experiences, which offer opportunities for the children to to explore and take risks, learn through first-hand experience and to gain greater independence, supporting their natural curiosity, and motivation to learn. As the children cover the areas of learning, we respond to their individual emerging needs and interests, guiding their development through warm, positive, skilful interactions, which we develop daily.


Life in Acorn Class

Each day we all embark on an exciting learning journey in Acorn Class, which stimulates and grows our  love of learning. We enjoy sharing this journey with our friends and teachers alike and new experiences both from school and home are celebrated and discussed with great enthusiasm. P.E. lessons are every Tuesday and Friday. Reading books are changed daily and library books will be changed on a Tuesday.
