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
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.
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.
