Welcome to Acorns!

We are so pleased to have everybody back in the classroom. During this half term we will be focusing on the 'Prime Areas' of learning and re-establishing our rules and routines.

 For the first few weeks of the summer term we will be delving into our ‘Dinosaur’ topic. You can find our Summer Term Newsletter attached below or on Tapestry in the ‘Memos’ section. 

Tapestry Tuesday

Share what you have been getting up to at home. We will use this as way to discuss what we have been getting up to. It is also a great way for the children to explore and celebrate the similarities and differences that we have within the classroom. 

Important dates coming up: 

Reception Zoom Meetings will be held on Zoom on Thursday 27th May 2021. 

Book your slot for this meeting via School Spider. Slots will go live at 4pm on Friday 30th April 2021. 

You will be send the Zoom Meeting Link via email. You can also find more information in the ‘Memos’ section on Tapestry.
