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 and their families who join Acorn Pre-school this term.

Please use the online learning journey ‘Learning Book’ to upload photos and information about what your child has been doing outside of school. To do this, use the ‘At Home’ tab and share anything and everything. We will use this information and these photos to share with the children in the Pre-school as an opportunity for communication development.

The children will be encouraged to enjoy a wide range of activities throughout the Autumn term which will include themes such as: Building and construction, colours, seasonal changes and celebrations, including Autumn, Divali, Bonfire Night and Christmas.

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 (via observations from home) – 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 usually lucky to be able to plan some exciting visits and visitors including a visit to our local farmer Rosie, at Weaver Dairy House Farm to enjoy exploring the farm through some colour hunting.

Weekly, you will be able to see how your child is getting on in Acorn Pre-school by looking at the Acorn Pre-school Blog and by logging in to your child’s ‘Learning Book’ online.

We work hard to make your child’s time at Nursery an exciting, happy and stimulating experience. If you have any concerns, we are very happy to speak to you about them – please use the email address: charlotte.alford@oak-view-academy.co.uk.
