Nursery Acorns

Set Work During School Closure

In Early Years (Chestnut and Acorn Classes) we will be using your child's Tapestry account for daily learning.

The rest of the school will be working differently to us with set timetables and class work.

PLEASE check your child’s Tapestry account for daily learning.  Below are messages and a list of useful websites for you to use with your child.

Easter Craft

Create an Easter ‘hat’ using what you have got in the house.
Photograph your Easter ‘hat’ and post on Tapestry.


Also, how about...............


Easter Growing Challenge
Acorn Class

Using recycled things from your house, plant any type of seed to grow. If you have a sunflower, then great but anything, broad beans, runner beans, wildflower seeds, cress.
Top tip, maybe put a few seeds in at a time in case one doesn’t work.
Post your pictures on Tapestry.

Happy Easter and have fun!

"Hello Amazing Acorns!

Thank you for all the videos and photos you are sending.  We absolutely love to see them.   We are posting videos on 'Tapestry' each day now, as well as the distance learning information, with ideas of some fun things to do.    Check them out, have a go and send through some pictures.   Also in a couple of days we will set two Easter challenges so look out for those!  

Also have a look at ‘Wash your hands with Baby Shark’ on YouTube. ‚Äč

Virtual high-fives and fist bumps"

EYFS - Useful Websites for Home Learning


Reception children should be using numbers up to 20, reading them, writing them and putting them in order. Also exploring addition and subtraction within that range.


We have learnt all the single sounds and some diagraphs (two letter sounds). When using ‘Phonics Play’ or other phonic websites please focus on the Phase 2 games. As the phases do not relate to our ‘Read Write Inc’ phonics scheme there may be some sounds the children are unfamiliar with.

Also during school closure, are offering free parent access using:

Welcome to Acorn Nursery Class
Academic Year 2019-2020


Our Class Teachers are Mrs Catherine Ashley each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Sinead Roberts each Thursday and Friday.


Welcome to Acorn Nursery!

In Nursery our focus is on learning through play. The casual observer might consider that children are merely playing with sand, dough, bricks and so on. The children are in fact working hard to make sense of and to master their environment.

We use our online journal ‘Tapestry’ to record, track and monitor children’s learning and progress. Please do add contributions from home to your child’s journal!
