Welcome to Acorns!
We are the youngest members of Oakley Primary Academy and share our classroom with Saplings.
Our teacher is Miss Randell and we have Mrs Flint and Mrs Green who are amazing at helping us in the classroom with everything we do.
We provide a positive, caring, safe and stimulating environment, following children’s interests through activity-based topics. We are active learners, exploring the world through a range of indoor and outdoor experiences, always bringing along our wellies so we can experience the different types of weather!
When we achieve great things (in our work or living our school values), we can move our pegs up the achievement ladder. If we get to ‘outstanding’, we get a golden ticket to place in the prize box. On Fridays, we pick two tickets to win a class prize.
Early Years will be kick starting the year with a fantastic new topic called Paws, Jaws and Claws. We will explore all things ‘beary’ and ‘beasty’ looking at familiar tales such as Goldilocks and The Tiger Who came to Tea. We will be inviting our own teddy bears to join us for a picnic as we settle into our new classroom and get to know our new friends.
Our focus this term is settling in and feeling at home. We will be learning through play as we explore the setting and learn to use all the equipment.
We look forward to sharing photos with you on our online learning platform to show you how busy we have been very soon!
Summer Term 2021:
In the summer term Early Years will be venturing on a journey into our new topic, Land Ahoy!
We will be going on a voyage around the world, looking at different countries and cultures and exploring how people travel to different places. The children will become pirates to explore the seas as we create maps, look for treasure and delve deep into the ocean.
Our little voyagers will also be planting vegetables and flowers in our greenhouse and planter and observing the changes as they grow.
There will be adventures galore as we open up our new improved mud kitchen, sand and gravel pits, water wall and trim trail. As always, we will share your child’s learning with you on our online Platform, ILD.
