Acorn Pre-School

Termly Newsletter

Dear Parent/Carers,
Welcome to Acorn Pre-school!

Mrs Alford, Mrs Woodall, Mrs Owen and Mrs Williams would like to give a warm welcome to the children who have returned to the Acorn Preschool, and also to those children who are new to the setting.

To help them each day, please could you remember to send in:
– A named, filled water bottle;
– The purple book bag;
– A waterproof coat (we enjoy playing outside in all weathers).
– A sunhat and suncream (during hot weather) and
– Gloves, hat and scarf (during cold weather)

To support your child with any self-care needs, we ask that where needed, you provide us with a change of clothing for the lower half,  in case of a toilet accident or just too much wet play!

Your child will be enjoying a PE lesson every Tuesday morning with our Sports Coach, James, this year. No special PE clothing is required.

The children will be enjoying a wide range of activities throughout the Spring term which will include themes such as: Winter, Food, Growing, Transport and Seasonal events.

These themes will provide a loose structure to the planning, however notice will be taken to the interests being shown by individual children in the Nursery – so that the curriculum is relevant and of interest to them. Please feel free to share with us any interest that your child is showing at home.

We are also planning some exciting visits and visitors including a visit to our local farmer Rosie, at Weaver Dairy House Farm to go and see the newborn lambs and a visit to Manchester Airport to see the planes.

You will be able to see how your child is getting on in Acorn Pre-school by looking at Facebook, Twitter or logging in to your child’s ‘Learning Book’ online, using the details that have been provided by the teachers.

We work hard to make your child’s time at Nursery a happy and stimulating experience. If you have any concerns, we are very happy to speak to you before or after Nursery.

Mrs Alford, Mrs Woodall, Mrs Williams & Mrs Owen









Once staff have had time to get to know your child/children and have completed their baseline assessments, they will plan for the next stage of their development. This will form a Medium term plan, the focus for learning in each half term.
