We are a fantastic class family of two adults and 20 wonderful pupils who love learning and having fun along the way!

EYFS is an exciting year during which the children are encouraged to become enthusiastic, independent learners. All children are unique individuals and as we get to know our wonderful Acorns, their interests are interwoven into the learning that takes place very day within the different areas of continuous provision set up in our amazing classroom.

We adhere to the Statutory Framework of the EYFS and the four guiding principles that shape practice within Early Years settings. 

  • Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
  • Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
  • Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers.
  •  Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.


We want our pupils to feel safe, happy and thrive in their learning environment and endeavour to make each day count as your child begins their school journey with us. Please access the Tapestry website, on which you will be able to participate in adding to the evidence which will showcase your child's learning journey. 

Our themes this year will be:

Getting to know you.

Let's celebrate.

The big freeze.

The land before time.

How does your garden grow? and...

All things bright and beautiful.


To help communicate between class and home, we have Class Dojo which allows parents and school to keep in touch and see what the children in class have been learning. Check this app regularly for updates and information to support your child’s learning at home.

We also use some amazing online resources to support your child’s learning. ‘Bug club’ for home reading, ‘Numbots’ for maths and ‘Charanga’ for music. Please check your child’s log in details and have fun learning at home.

We hope you enjoy looking at our photos, which I am sure you will agree, show lots of fun and happiness being had in our amazing class!


Everyone has been working really hard this week.

We have had great fun in our outdoor area, wearing our fabulous blue suits! In class we are learning more sounds and numbers and Mrs Porter and Mrs Bailey are really proud of the enthusiasm each pupil is showing! 

This week, Acorn's stars are Ollie and Ajay! Ollie has been working hard in phonics, learning new sounds and Ajay has been a number expert! 





Well done boys! Keep up the hard work.


Remember our 3 school rules!


                       Mrs Porter, Mrs Bailey and Acorns.




                      This week we have loved putting on our outdoor suits and wellies!
