Our children in Big Acorns are beginning their preparation for ‘big school’ and the transition period that this brings. As part of this transition, staff will engage the children in adult-led activities whilst providing the children with the opportunity to make choices for themselves during free flow play.
Big Acorns staff introduce letters and sounds activities, opportunities to develop the muscles needed for writing and plenty of outdoor exploration to refine the skills needed for school.
The children love spending time in our forest area with its purpose-built classroom come rain or shine.
The children’s learning is also enriched on a Wednesday when we are joined in the nursery by Carol who teaches the children French.
Staff work on a 1-8 ratio.
