A very warm welcome to the first half of the spring term in Acorns! We hope you’ve all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to lots of fun activities over the coming weeks.

Please can we ask that your child continues to bring a water bottle each day and a bag with a spare change of clothes in case of accidents.

PE Information

Physical development is an important part of the EYFS curriculum and is planned for on a daily basis both inside and outdoors. We also have a PE session with Mrs Bradley on Wednesday mornings where the children enjoy a wide range of activities either in the hall or outside. Children do not require a PE kit for this session.

Extended Learning

Sharing daily stories with your child is a great way to encourage a love of reading from a young age. Encouraging your child to count and sort objects in the home and recognise numbers in everyday contexts will also support their developing maths skills. This term, we will be introducing the ‘Read, Write, Inc.’ phonics scheme. For more information, please see


Our theme for this half-term is called, ’Let’s Explore….Space!’. We will be learning about our solar system and the astronaut Tim Peake. Our fictional stories will be linked to this theme to help fire up our imaginations. We will begin with ‘Whatever Next!’ and move onto ‘Winnie and Wilbur in Space’ and ‘Aliens Love Underpants’. Alongside our theme, we will follow the interests and developing skills of the children.

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

We look forward to getting to know you!

Many thanks

Mrs Salmon and Mrs Williams
