Welcome to Little Acorns!
We believe that every early year’s child is unique and has the right to learn through play.
We provide a rich and enabling environment, where children feel they belong, are understood, and are inspired to succeed.
We know that this requires skilful interactions by knowledgeable adults to build the foundations for life.
Please see below this weeks activities, also there are other useful websites below to have a look at that all provide support with different activities too.
We have also provided a play dough recipe.

We have a few exciting days coming up this half term such as, World Book Day; Thursday 5th March. We will be dressing up and spending the day doing activities which reflect some of the children's favourite books. We also have another curriculum choice day, the theme is to be confirmed. These days are always special as we get together with Ebury class for the most fun and engaging days for our children.
We are still learning about our children's schema's and we are providing more activities to support them each week. We are currently putting together some parent sheets to support your understanding of how you can support your children at home when they have particular schema's.
We now have our new wet suits which allows us to play outside in all weathers as it keeps our clothes drier by wearing these. Thank you to those that a have brought wellies, please make sure your child has the appropriate clothing for the weather conditions:
Coat, hat, scarf, gloves and wellies.
If you would like to bring a pair of wellies and leave them here with us we can put their name on so that they can wear them as and when needed :)
We are still in need of some of some items for room and some of these you may be able to help with if you have any of thee at home that you do not want any more. If you have any of these items and are able to donate them too us then we would really appreciate this .
The items are:
We will continue to have our story of the week as well as the rhyme of the week. An interest of the children at the moment is animals so we have chosen stories and rhymes around animals. We have also chosen sound and feel books to support the children to join in to help build confidence at cirlce time.
