A very warm welcome to the second half of the spring term in Acorns! We hope you’ve had a good half-term 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

Wednesday morning sessions are led by Ms Bradley and focus on developing ball skills, throwing, catching and balancing. On Friday mornings we also go to the Hall for “music and movement” sessions. Children do not require a PE kit.

Extended Learning

For extended learning, your child can complete any of the tasks below:

  • Choosing some activities from the ‘Homework Grid’ (Activities can be brought into nursery, shared on Tapestry or emailed to
  • Sharing stories, singing nursery rhymes and playing counting game

Our theme for this half-term is called, ‘Under the Sea’. We will be learning about The Great Barrier Reef, hermit crabs, turtles, blue whales and how to care for our seas and oceans. Our fictional stories will be linked to this theme and include ‘Sharing A Shell’ by Julia Donaldson. 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

Many thanks

Mrs Salmon and Mrs Williams
