Acorns Class

Acorn class is for our younger pupils who are developing their early learning skills – ‘Learning to Learn.’

We follow the Early Years model, which has three prime areas of learning:

Communication and Language: There is a strong focus on giving children opportunities to experience a language rich environment, develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves as well as speaking and listening in a range of contexts.

Physical development: Which provides opportunities for young children to be active and interactive, develop their co-ordination, control, and movement, understand the importance of physical activity, and make healthy choices about food.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development is embedded within our entire curriculum, helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves and others, form positive relationships, respect others, develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings as well as understand and regulate appropriate behaviour and have confidence in their own abilities.

These three prime areas are strengthened by four specific areas of learning: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding of the World, and Expressive Arts and Design.

 

We cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into our son. You are amazing and we appreciate everything you have done for us as a family.
