Welcome to Acorns and Oaks!
Hello and welcome to the Foundation stage page. We are the Nursery and reception aged children at our school; we learn and play altogether in our Early Years Unit. We have lots of time each day to explore and play but we also have short sessions where we learn our letters, our numbers, do beautiful singing and have cosy story times.
Nursery children come for 15 hours a week within a morning or afternoon session but sometimes stay all day as we offer day care sessions which you can pay for as extra.
If you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit for your Nursery child come in and see us, we are more than happy to show you around!!
Acorns and Oaks also get times of the day where they are separate to ensure high levels of differentiation and adult focus time.
Feel free to come and take a look at our wonderful displays!!

Reception's African drumming
Reception took part in an African drumming workshop for our culture day. The children learnt all about the djembe drum and what it is made out of. They all had a chance to play the drums and sing some songs as well.

In Nursery and Reception we have been enjoying building our own models out of the Duplo. Here are just a few of our fantastic creations. What do you think?
In Reception we have been learning about archery with Mr Needham. We have been working hard on out accuracy and aim and have really been enjoying ourselves.
In Reception we have been working hard in maths. This week we have been looking at putting numbers in the correct order starting from 1.
For Bonfire Night the Reception and Nursery class learnt all about fireworks and bonfire safety. We created beautiful firework paintings and made yummy chocolate sparklers to enjoy.
We loved mark making and name writing using the chalks on the playground.
