Acorn - EYFS

Welcome to Acorn Class!

We are looking forward to getting to know you all very soon!  To help you get ready why don't you create a count down calendar so that you can tick off each day.  First of all we will visit you at home and have a little play together.  We would love you to share your favourite toy or book with us. 

A bit about us...




Class Overview

Welcome to Acorn Class. We can be found near the main entrance to the school busily learning both indoors and outdoors. Our class teacher is Mrs Özcan and Mrs Halford on a Wednesday. Miss Iggulden, Miss Gourley, Ms Rowe and Mr Mckenna support 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 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, skillful 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.


What to bring when

Please bring in your book bag and water bottle everyday.

A change of clothes and a pair of wellies should be brought in and remain at school.

Our P.E. day will be determined and posted here in September.  P.E. kits usually stay at school and are sent home for a wash each half term.  P.E. shoes are not needed until later in the year as we will work in the school hall.
