Welcome to Acorns!

Our teacher is Mrs Wade, and our teaching assistant is Mrs Clayton

In Acorns, we start the day with a morning activity, handwriting, finger gym, Maths or English. Then we have our register, talk about the date and the weather and discuss what we will be doing during the day.

At 9am every day, we do 20-30 minutes of Phonics. (On Wednesdays, we have PE with MNR and so Phonics is before lunch instead.) After phonics we either have English or drawing club, a class input then small group work. 

Just before lunch, we have 20-30 minutes of Maths (again, except Wednesdays!). After lunch, we have reading practice sessions, followed by Foundation subjects, and then independent learning. We finish the day with a review of our learning, and storytime.

Children in Acorns are encouraged to be independent in their learning inside and outside. Our classroom is open-ended, and offers many opportunities for children to choose their own resources and challenge themselves.

Have a look at our learning!
