Acorns (Nursery)

Welcome to Acorn Class
Acorns is our Nursery Class. The unit is overseen by our EYFS lead Miss Adams,  with the assistance of Mrs Henderson, Mrs Swordy and Mrs Tait The majority of children attend for the three hour morning session, although some families do access the 30 hours per week. Our curriculum is based on learning through play and the children thrive in this environment.

Friday - Little Movers PE 
Ambulance Visit
Mr Tate visited us to talk about his job and taught us some first aid. We also got to look in the ambulance. 
Dinosaur Fossils 
We used the salt dough to make dinosaur fossils. We then hid them in the sand pit and dug them up. 
The Greedy Elf Pantomime 
We are so proud of the children for their first Nativity!
Santa Dash
Remembrance Day
We learnt about Remembrance Day and why we wear a poppy. We then created our own poppies using egg boxes that we painted red, black pom poms and green painted straws. We also made tissue paper poppies and used them all for our big display. 
We have enjoyed learning about Diwali. We used clay to make our own Diya lamps, we used the tools to create patterns, we then pained them and added glitter. 
Bonfire Night
We have loved celebrating bonfire night. We have made our own firework marks, paintings and even watched a firework video whilst having some yummy hot chocolate. 
Little Movers
We have so much fun at Little Movers.
Exploring Pumpkins 
The children have really enjoyed exploring pumpkins. They used their senses to describe the pumpkins. We loved making pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie. 
European Languages Day 
For European Languages Day we have been learning all about the country Norway. We have worked with an artist Katherine Renton to explore feelings and colours. We learnt about the flag of Norway and used the maps to find the country. 
Learning Through Play 
Our new nursery children have gotten off to a wonderful start in our Early Years unit. They have very much enjoyed playing in all of our provision areas and experiencing all of the wonderful activities set up for them. They have loved to play and learn outdoors.
