Welcome to Acorns!
Acorns marks the start of KS1 for your child. However, we believe that the transition to a different curriculum shouldn’t mean a different style of teaching. Children learn best through play. Enjoyable, explorative experiences are essential to best answer the ‘Big questions’ we channel our learning through.
We are lucky to be able to access outside space directly from our classroom which backs onto a beautiful orchard. As much as possible of our learning is done out here and in the woods around the school. 6 and 7-year olds need to move and use their hands and bodies to learn, and we always undertake practical activities to explore our learning. Stories, books and drama are essential to enrich children’s language and imagination.
Acorns class also provides a transition between the EYFS and KS2, we support children to become increasingly independent in their recording on paper, both in English and in Maths -but at the right pace for each child. (We prepare our children to do their very best in the Year 1 phonic check and KS1 SATS.)
