Where Everyone Belongs

Little Acorns

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.

Staff you will meet are:


 Miss Perry - Lead Teaching Assistant

Miss Matthews - Teaching Assistant 

Mr Cheetham - Apprentice Teaching Assistant 



Hello everyone in Little Acorns class! 


We've recorded you a little message to say Hello and so you can meet our staff in Little Acorns :)

Autumn Term 1

September - October 2020


Welcome back to Little Acorns! We've missed you so much and are so excited to get back together to play and learn this term!

Whilst this term might be a little different we have still got all of our areas of provision available to our children to support all of the children's areas of development. 

We will continue to have our story of the week as well as the rhyme of the week at circle time, this term we have chosen to focus on traditional nursery rhymes. Also we have chosen a variety of stories and will now be providing story props to support the children with their own story telling, which will help with their vocabulary and imaginative development. 


We are really focusing on schema's in children's play (this is patterns of behaviours children display through play) . We have now created a sheet for all the different schema's that we can share with you for when we see certain schema's in children. This can help to explain why children play with certain toys or in a certain way. This can also then help you to support their play and development at home by providing certain toys for them. 


We are still in need of some of some items for our room and some of these you may be able to help with, if you have any of these items listed below 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 smiley.

The items are:

  • Pots and Pans 
  • "Tiny Baby" clothes
  • Hats
