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.

If you are needing to stay at home we don't want you to miss out on our fantastic learning so we will be providing weekly activities, our song of the week and our book of the week. Please take a look at our weekly home learning activities that we have provided for you too, this gives you an activity to take part in each day and will support some of the routines that we have in our daily sessions.
There is also a play dough recipe and useful websites for you to use in this time.
Whilst we are still in uncertain times at the moment it is so lovely to be in school with the children. There are some celebrations this term that we will be taking part in.
Remembrance day - 11th November
Children in need - 13th November
Diwali - 14th November (will celebrate this on Monday 16th November)
Christmas - Throughout December
So we have lots to look forward to this term!
We will continue to have our story of the week which will be provided on our newsletter along with the rhyme of the week, so that you know what will be doing too.
For those children that may need to take part in Home Learning we are also providing the story and song of the week along with weekly activities, so that you can continue to learn from a distance!
We now have a 'story shelfie' along side our story of the week. This is where we provide props that link with the story. This can support further engagement with the story of the week as they can use the props to retell the story and this can also support vocabulary.
Now that the weather is getting colder and wetter could you please provide wellie boots for your child as we play outdoors in all weathers! Thank you.
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 .
The items are:
BBC Nursery rhymes - https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/nursery-rhymes-a-to-z-index/z4ddgwx
There are lots of different nursery rhymes you can sing with your child.
This website has lots of books that you can read for free online.
