Hello from the Acorns class team!

Family learning: please see below for ways in which you can extend what your child is doing in school at home.

We are Acorns class this MER we are thinking about the world around us and our environment. We are going to explore the season of summer thinking about the changes to the garden and the different creatures or animals we may see. We are hoping to have a picnic in the Forest School area using salad that we have planted during fruits and vegetables week. We are hoping to enjoy lots of water play when the weather gets better and start to transition to the trampoline area and the Brack track! We are going to move on to some stage 2 Attention Autism activities as we are now engaging really well with this. We are working really hard on our independence and self help skills. We are being encouraged to wash our hands before eating dinner and holding our own bags to go home.


we are using choice boards in class for both snack times and songs, we will be adding activity boards to this later in the MER, please ask if you would like copies of these for at home or we can make personalised ones for things that you know your child likes to engage with.

Friends, relationships and community

Share with us on BOOP or via email pictures of what you are doing at home with friends and family or in the community. We can then share these with your child and talk about them to show we are aware of what they do outside of school. 

Independent living

Encourage independence by letting your child have a go at putting on their own shoes, or unzipping their coat. Also allow them to use cutlery to eat, it may be messy at first but it’s a great skill to have. All of Acorns are doing so well at sitting together at snack and dinner time, we are extremely proud of them

Good health

Practice washing hand and faces! encourage them to do this on themselves but also can be done with toys, dolls and animals

Please remember to let us know what you get up to at home we love to hear about fantastic moments and see any pictures. You can email on our class email address. 

If you have any good news stories please email them to and we will be in touch to include you in our weekly community news bulletin.
