A very warm welcome to the first half of the summer term in Acorns! Please can we ask that your child continues to bring a water bottle each day and a bad with a spare change of clothes in case of accidents. As much as children like to bring a toy into school, we are trying to encourage them to leave toys at home from now on in preparation for Reception.

PE Information

PE sessions are on Wednesday mornings. Mrs Bradley leads the sessions and the children enjoy a wide range of activities either in the hall or outside. Children do not require a PE kit.

Our theme for this half-term is called “Growing and Changing”. We will be doing lots of outdoor learning as we investigate seasonal changes, including a spring walk to Bob’s Garden. We will be growing our own bean plants and learning how to care for them. We will learn about the life-cycle of a butterfly and observing our own caterpillars and reading “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to us at nursery or alternatively, e-mail us at

Many thanks

Mrs Salmon and Mrs Williams
