Acorns Curriculum/Learning

Learning Objectives

what we will be learning in class this week:

Week Commencing Monday 9th July 2018

Topic Title

Houses & Homes



In literacy we are practicing our letter formation and trying to form
recognisable letters from our names.  While reading stories we will be trying to predict how the story might end or offer an alternative ending to our stories.  We will also be listening to stories and be able to tell our teachers what happened or our favourite part.


We will be continuing to work on our counting and number recognition. We will be starting to identify how many objects are in one or more groups.  We will continue to develop our shape knowledge and choosing shapes for particular purposes in our building games.



General Information

Please do not forget our family fun sports day on Wednesday 18th July - see letter on Friday post for further details.

Please remember to send your children in with sun cream already applied and named sun hats to wear while outside.


Whole School Curriculum plan 2017/18

National Primary Curriculum


Parent Planners 

Each term, before the children embark on their learning in a new topic, we send home a Parent Topic Planner explaining for parents and carers the learning opportunities across the curriculum that each child will receive. Teachers select and suggest useful websites and places to visit which will enhance and prepare the child for the topic they are about to start. There are also useful dates and a bank of topic words that families may choose to talk through with their children.
