Summer Term 2

June - July 2019


We absolutely love our new sand pit in our outdoor space, it feels like we have our own Little Acorns beach. We also have added new resources to our outdoor space such as Water and construction. Everything outdoors is bigger which provides the children to enhance their gross motor skills. 

We are continually making 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. We now have a play dough area provided all session for continuous provision and have provided more resources within the mark making and workshop areas. 


There are a few items that we are still in need of and some of these you may be able to help. If you have any of these items and are able to donate them too us then we would really appreciate this :) 

The items are:

  • Dress up scarfs
  • Bangles/dress up bracelets
  • Pots and Pans 
  • "Tiny Baby" clothes
  • Hats 
  • Slippers (for our home corner)


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 we have chosen around interests of the children that we have noticed to support events from home life or nursery. 


"Stay and play"

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
