Summer Term 1

April - May 2019


As you may have noticed we have made lots of changes to our room regarding the resources and areas for the children to learn and explore. Please come in and have a look at what we offer within our provision. We will be also be focusing on our outdoor space and spending more time to learn and explore outside as we build on this area. 

Our focus for this term will be spring as the children have taken an interest of bugs outside, and watering the planters. We will be using this interest to support further learning. 


We will continue to have our story of the week as well as the rhyme of the week. We do send home a copy of the song of the week as this gives you a chance to join in with activities we carry out within Little Acorns. The stories of the week are texture books this terms to support language. We are using "that's not my..." books. 


We are now offering "Stay and Play" sessions every 2 weeks to give you the opportunity to play with us and your children to see what the children gain from the activities and areas of learning provided. These are half hour sessions 8:40 -9:10 for AM and 12:15-1:15 for PM. Please come and join us for a play smiley
