Little Acorns

Lead Learner: Hannah Albrow

Little Acorns caters for nursery and reception aged children. The classroom provides a bright, child friendly and stimulating environment where learning takes a play-based approach, with elements of structured activities. The pupils have a mixture of individual, small group and class sessions.

Little Acorns has free flow between the indoor classroom and outdoor environment. Each child has their own learning journal; which documents their progress and achievements throughout their time in the foundation stage. The journal uses a combination of pictures and observations from both school and home.

The Early Years Department at Manor Green follows the statutory Early Years Foundation Stage profile – a curriculum for children aged 0-5 years.

To celebrate world book day Little Acorns explored props and sensory trays related to the picture book ‘Flotsam’ by David Wiesner.

The children also came in dressed up as their favourite character for World Book Day.
