Little Acorns Nursery

Welcome to Little Acorns Nursery Class


Little Acorns outside play zone: the children can play in a safe and secure environment and have a variety of brilliant resources to play with.

Welcome to our brilliant Little Acorns Nursery webpage.  Little Acorns is the name of our nursery for 2yr to 3yr olds which runs every morning between 8.45am - 11.45am. We have a comprehensive nursery provision at Mrs Bland's and we pride ourselves on making sure your child is ready, keen and confident to attend our nursery. Parents and children are very welcome to visit, meet the staff and view our classes, please contact the school office if you would like to visit. Further advice on admissions can be found at the bottom of this page

We have a wide open door policy within Little Acorns. A member of staff will greet you on the door every morning and see your child out at the end of the session. We encourage you to come and speak with the staff with any concerns or queries.

We love to be outdoors whatever the weather, our covered area means fresh air without the rain!

Your child will be allocated a Key Worker. The key worker will ensure your child is settled and will monitor their progress, ensuring their needs are met. The key worker will also be a point of contact should you wish to discuss your child's progress.

We offer a healthy snack and drink throughout our session but children can also bring water.  During the cold period please make sure your child has a coat, we go outside every day

We are looking forward to welcoming your child into Little Acorns. During the first weeks we will spend quality time settling and getting to know your child. We offer a rich and varied curriculum and focus each term on a different topic.

Our theme for this term

This term in Little Acorns our topic will be 'How many colours in the rainbow'? 

We will be finding out about how rainbows are made, what the colours are and reading stories about rainbows.  We are REALLY hoping to find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow too!

We have been reading a story about the Very Hungry Caterpillar, and eating hairy kiwi fruit! We also talked about different fruits we like to eat. Some of those we like were BIG fruits, like a melon, and some were small fruit like grapes.

Painting rainbows can get very messy, very quickly!

We love to sing and this term we will continue to have weekly hall sessions for singing and our P.E session. The children enjoy taking part in yoga sessions, practising their yoga poses!

Fantastic Yoga 'Tree' pose! keeping mind and body together

We also enjoy weekly singing session with Acorns to help develop the children 's confidence and for them to become familiar with other areas of the school.
