Welcome to Acorns Class

Welcome to Acorns Class – a Foundation Stage Unit for Nursery and Reception children. We currently welcome children aged 3-5 years. Our Nursery children are known as ‘Little Acorns’ and our Reception children are known as ‘Big Acorns’. We are ‘Busy Learners’ together, sharing our well-resourced indoor and outdoor areas.

The Acorns Team!

Lead Teacher: Miss Brown (Mrs Holding covers my PPA time)

Early Years Practitioners: Mrs Burgess, Miss Hitchings and Mrs Hunter

Teaching Assistants: Miss Wills and Mrs Radmore


We follow the curriculum guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage (further details below). We work on topics, themes and follow the children’s interest. This provides learning opportunities through lots of interesting activities and investigations. On this page, you can see photos showcasing a flavour of what we have been learning recently. There are also some useful resources for you to use at home to support your child’s learning. You can find even more tips for helping your child’s learning at home here: https://www.exevalleyfederation.co.uk/How-to-help-your-child-at-home/
