Welcome to Acorn Class

Within each tiny acorn there lies the potential for a mighty Oak to thrive and grow 

 

Our Nursery aged and Reception aged children are taught in Acorn class by Miss Miller (Class teacher), Mrs. Owen (Higher Level Teaching assistant), Miss Lloyd and Miss Bunn (Early Years Teaching assistants).  Our Early Years Unit,  catering for children aged 2 to 5 years, opened in November 2014.
Acorn class are very lucky to benefit from two spacious classrooms and an outdoor area to allow them to fully access all areas of the Early Years curriculum.
If you are interested in your child attending our Early Years unit please contact the school to arrange a visit/ collect an admissions pack.

                  

All of the fantastic learning that the children demonstrate in Acorn class is recorded using ‘Seesaw’.

This is a safe and secure electronic record of your child’s learning journey.  Parents have access to view their child’s Learning Journey with their unique ‘log-on’.  Parents can comment upon their child’s learning and also share with us some of the activities their child does at home.

Teaching of Early Reading at West Felton

At West Felton we teach phonics (learning letters and the sounds they make) through the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme published by DfES.

We make use of some of the resources provided by ‘Teach your monster to read’ and ‘Phonics Play‘ some of which can be accessed for use at home.
Our reading scheme is primarily based around ‘Oxford Reading Tree’ schemes.  Some e-books can be accessed at home by clicking on the icon below.

The children have all settled in really well.   A reminder that we have P.E sessions on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons (weather permitting).  Please send children in wearing their P.E kits for those sessions.
