which build up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us.

We would really appreciate it if you could also upload your own 

observations, photos and videos to enable us to create an even

greater picture of your child's development.


Our EYFS Lead is Miss Gray.


Our Lead Key Worker is Mrs Rymer.

Friday 17thJuly.


Good morning Little Acorns,


It is here, the last day of term and the school year.  How very strange this year has been, especially the last few months.   Well done everyone for taking part and adapting so well with the online provision.


Miss Hodgson, Miss Marriott and myself would normally be giving you a hug and wishing you well today, but sadly this year we cannot. 


So instead, please take a look at the link below or cut and paste it into your browser...


Wishing you all well,


Mrs Rymer, Miss Hodgson

Thursday 16thJuly.


Morning Acorns,


How did you get on drawing your ‘teacher’ yesterday?   Did you remember the colour of their hair, or if they wear glasses?   I do hope you gave them a great big smile!

I wonder, today could you tell someone what you are looking forward to when you start in your new class?  Is there something that you are worried about?   Shall I tell you something? I get very excited when my new children start but I also get butterflies in my tummy. I think “what if the children don’t like me?”    So I speak to Mr Rymer and Miss Hodgson and they always tell me that it will be fine and that we can sort any worries out together.  So, these feelings are all natural and lots boys and girls get them when they start school, just remember the story of ‘Jellybean’.



Mrs Rymer.heart





Wednesday 15th July.


Morning Little Acorns,


Did you enjoy the story of ‘Jellybean’ going to school?  I know the ‘Conkers’ did, as they watched it too!


Today I would like you to think about your new teacher, could you draw a picture of them?  Try and remember what colour hair they have. Do they wear glasses? Have they got long or short hair?  If you haven’t met them yet, draw what you think they might look like.


I would love to see them once you have finished so please ask your grown up to send in a photo of the drawing.


Mrs Rymer.smiley





Tuesday 14th July.


Good morning Acorns,


Did you take part with Jamie yesterday? If so, did it help?  I feel really relaxed and ready for today’s activity.


I have found a lovely story which I think you will enjoy.  Click on the link or cut and paste it into your browser and take a look.

Monday 13th July.


Morning Acorns,


Welcome to the last week of the school year!  Oh my, hasn’t it gone so quickly?

Below is the link.

Wednesday 8th July.


Hello Little Acorns,


How did you get on with yesterday’s Nursery Rhyme activity?  Did you remember the actions?  I hadn’t heard the second verse of the rhyme before, had you?


I thought today we would keep to the theme of ‘Spiders’ and I have found some craft ideas you might like to try at home.


If you try any of these don’t forget to send in some photos, I would love to share them in the Newsletter this week.






Mrs Rymerheart

Friday 3rd July.


Happy Friday Acorns!


I hope you had lots of fun creating your own sports day yesterday?

For today we shall finish the week doing something a little less physical.

Could you find some lined paper in your house and practice writing your first and last name a few times? Let’s see how many times you can write it in your best handwriting.  You could also practice writing the short date which is 3.7.20.

Have a fantastic weekend and remember to stay safe.


Miss Hodgson heart

Thursday 2nd July.


Good morning Little Acorns,


If you had been at school, then this week we would have been doing our sports day.

So, for today's challenge, how do you feel about having your own sports day with your family?

I have included a few race ideas for you but if you can think of any of your own, that would be great!


  • Running race.
  • Collecting 3 items in a bucket.
  • Egg and spoon.
  • Hopping or jumping.
  • Bean bag balanced on your head.


Please do send Mrs Rymer your photos; we really do enjoy seeing what you are all getting up to.


Have a great day,


Miss Hodgson heart



Wednesday 1st July.


Good morning Acorns,


Did you enjoy the domino activities yesterday? 

What do you think about making some model ‘Bugs’ today?   You can use things such as Playdoh, clay, plasticine, salt dough, or any junk-modelling items you have at home.  I have added some ideas below to help you.









Don’t forget to send in some photos. 

Mrs Rymer.

Happy Friday Acorns,


Miss Hodgson and I really liked the Maths activity from yesterday, what did you think?


Today we thought you could try making your own ‘Ladybirds’ from bits and pieces around your home or garden.  We have added a few ideas, which we think might be useful.


Don’t forget to ask your grown up to take a photo of any activities you do, especially if they are some of our suggestions.smiley


Keep safe and hopefully we will see you all very soon.


Mrs Rymer and Miss Hodgson.heart







Thursday 25th June.


Good morning Acorns,


What did you think to the French greeting and goodbye yesterday?  We thought we would tease you.


What about Maths games for today’s activity?


We have found a great link for you to go on.


We hope you have fun doing it.


Mrs Rymer and Miss Hodgson




Wednesday 24th June.


Bonjour Petit Glands,


Did you like the French greeting this morning?


So for today’s activity would you like to watch the story of 'What the Ladybird Heard' by Julia Donaldson?


Can you remember…

  1. What do we call the name of a person who writes the story?
  2. What do we call the name of the person who draws the pictures?
  3. If there is information on the back of the book, what is it called?


Extra dojo points for each one you can remember.



Here is the link for the story.


Au revoir Petit Glands,


Madame Rymer et Mademoiselle Hodgson




Tuesday 23rd June.


Happy Tuesday Acorns,


If you took part in Cosmic Yoga yesterday, how did you do with 'Enzo the Bee'?  Some of the older children in the 'Bubbles' had a go and really enjoyed it!


Today’s activity is going to be a creative one.

How would you like to do some handprint butterflies?

Below are some links to show you examples of how to create them, you can use other resources to make them look beautiful.




We hope you enjoy making these and we look forward to seeing the end results.


Mrs Rymer and Miss Hodgson.smiley

Monday 22nd June.


Good morning Acorns,


We hope you are all well and have had a lovely weekend.  So, it’s Monday again, where did that week go?


Did you get up to anything interesting over the weekend?  If so please share any pictures with us that you may have.


Well as it’s Monday it is cosmic yoga. Below is attached a link to Arnold the Ant.

Mrs Rymer and Miss Hodgson

Friday 19th June.


Happy Friday Little Acorns,


What a busy week we have had!  So today I think we should have a more relaxed activity, don’t you?


I wonder if you could imagine that you have grown a delicate pair of wings?  Then could you pretend to float, fly and flutter like a beautiful butterfly, flying from flower to flower or tree to tree, gently landing on them then carrying on to the next?  If you have a brother or sister maybe they would like to try this too? 






Have a lovely weekend.smiley



Mrs Rymer.heart




Thursday 18th June.


Good morning Little Acorns,


Well, how did you get on with the colour by numbers yesterday?  What a great way to have some fun and make sure you recognise and remember your numbers!


Today, I thought you might like to try and make a paper or card 'moving' Caterpillar, what do you think?  If you decide to have ago, then I have added a link below to help you.


All you need is either a piece of paper or card, a pencil, a pair of scissors and a drinking straw.smiley


Hopefully you will have lots of fun doing this activity, don't forget let me have your photos so I can share them either in ClassDojo or in the weekly 'Sparkle and Shine' newsletter.


Keep safe.smiley


Mrs Rymer.heart

Good morning Acorns,


I hope you enjoyed making your 'Hungry Caterpillar' sandwiches, salads or fruits yesterday?


Today, I thought you might enjoy some Maths?  Don't worry it's not too tricky.  Below is some colouring by number worksheets.  If you have a printer at home, you could ask your grown up to print the out and then you could colour them with crayons, felt pens or even paint them?


Mrs Rymer.smiley

Thursday 11th June.


Good morning Little Acorns,


Yesterday was another wet day wasn't it, raining pretty much all day!

Eva and I still made the most of it though, we got our coats on and went for a walk splashing in puddles again.

I let the paddling pool down yesterday as it was taking up to much space in my living room.

What did you little lot get up to?


So for today's task how would you like to make a bug hotel?

I have attached some things below to help you create one. If it is to wet, maybe you could collect some natural resources and create it inside.


Have a great day and stay safe!


Remember, "Catch it, kill it and bin it".


Miss Hodgson heart








Wednesday 10th June.


Happy Wednesday Acorns!!!


So what did you cheeky little lot do yesterday then?


I went for a lovely walk with Eva and spotted some Donkey's and Horse's, which she absolutely loved!

We also blew up her new big paddling pool in the living room and filled it with toys and blankets surprisesmiley


So tomorrow I thought you could maybe do a sorting activity if you would like? (Big and Small)

If you have any kind of bugs or insects in your home to use that would be great but if not, don't worry you can always use animals or craft pom poms or anything really, as long as you have big and small objects.


Have a wonderful day Acorns, we look forward to seeing your pictures from home.


Stay Safe!


Miss Hodgson heart







Tuesday 9th June.


Hello Lovely Little Acorns,


How are we all this morning?


So for today's task I would like you to do some scissor and pencil control. wink

I have attached some worksheets and video links below to help you all.


Please send us in your work, we are really missing you all, so would really like to see what you are all doing!

Monday 8th June.


Good morning Little Acorns,


Did everyone have a fantastic weekend in the rain? Did any of you go puddle jumping?

I took Eva out on Saturday morning in her puddle suit and wellies! We found lots of puddles but especially a really BIG one that she just kept running back and forth through. 


So for today's task, how would you like to make a Hungry Caterpillar Finger Puppet?  I have attached a picture underneath of one I have found and maybe you could have a go at your very own.



Don't forget to send in any photos of what you have done at home for us to share.


Remember....... 'Catch it, kill it, bin it!"


Miss Hodgson heart

Friday 5th June.


Happy Friday Little Acorns


I hope you are all well!

How did you get on with doing the bug hunt? Did you find many?


I have a new challenge for you today...

I would like you to complete the following worksheet if possible.


Firstly, could you colour each shape and remember to try your hardest not to go out of the lines.

Then once you have completed the work, do you think you could go around your home and see if you can find any items which have the same shape, a little tricky but if you need your adults' help, just ask laugh


Please remember if you can send in some photos of your activities we will share them in either our weekly news letter or our 'class story' on dojo.


Don't forget.......... 'Catch it, kill it, bin it'


Have a great weekend all!


Miss Hodgson heart



Thursday 4th June.


Good morning Acorns,


I hope you have all had a wonderful night's sleep ready for another great day ahead.


I just wanted to remind everyone about making sure we are washing our hands much more and don't forget to sing 'happy birthday' twice whilst you do it, then you know they will be thoroughly clean.  Also when sneezing and coughing don't forget to 'catch it' 'kill it' and 'bin it' using tissues if possible and then again, do the 20 seconds of hand washing.


So today do you fancy going on a bug hunt?  If you do and you manage to collect any, how about you then do some counting and see if you have more than one of each bug?


Here is a worksheet to help you along your way.


Miss Hodgson ❤


Wednesday 3rd June.


Good morning Little Acorns


Did you all have a great day yesterday in the lovely sunshine? I think today is going to be a very different day!

So today with it being wet, would you all like to work on your singing voices and practice some bug songs?

I know 'Incy Wincy Spider' and 'The Ants Go Marching', could you have a think of any you might know?


We miss seeing you and hope to see you all soon, please stay safe smiley


Mrs Rymer and Miss Hodgson


Tuesday 2nd June.


Hello Little Acorns,


Where did that week go?   


It was lovely to spend time in my garden enjoying the fabulous weather.  I did take my dogs for early morning walks, before it got to hot and uncomfortable.   It was so peaceful listening to the birds singing and then watching the rabbits playing in the fields.


What did you get up to?  Please don't forget to share your photos or send a message telling me what you have enjoyed doing.


Today could you try some 'Cosmic Yoga'?  I found 'Stella the Stick Insect' on the internet and I thought this would be perfect for our topic this term 'A Bug's Life'.smiley


Mrs Rymer.

Friday 22nd May.

Whichever you do please send in your photos so I can share them in the weekly newsletter.


Mrs Rymer.smiley






























Tuesday 12th May.


Good morning Little Acorns,


A much brighter day today.  I have of course already been for a lovely walk with my dogs.  I did see other people walking their dogs too, but at the moment I just wave, keeping my distance and say "hopefully we can stand and chat soon."


My question is have you tried the 'Billy Goat' footprints from yesterday?  Please remember to ask your grown up before you do.


Here are a few ideas for you to try, don't forget to send in photos of any activities you have been doing, there are always dojo points for you to earn.smiley

Good morning Little Acorns,

What a busy time we had in the 'Nest' last week.  I hope you had a chance to look on the newsletter and see what we got up too!smiley


We are going to continue with our story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff'.  So I wonder, if you have paint at home, whether you could paint

your feet, then make footprints on some paper.  You could pretend you are 'trip trap, trip trapping' over the bridge, just like a billy goat.  Ask your siblings or parent to have a go too.   Then can you compare/describe your prints with them?  


I would love to see photos of this activity.smiley


Finally, I have added below a link to The Children's Centre which the adults might find helpful.

Mrs Rymersmiley

Tuesday 21st April.


Good morning everyone,


Thank you for sharing all your pictures yesterday, it was lovely to see you all and what you have been doing.

How did you get on with Cosmic Yoga?

Did you find any different story endings to "The Three Little Pigs?"


I have a few ideas you might like to try at home.





I wonder if you can tell me the total number of eyes "The Three Little Pigs" have altogether?

You could try counting the ears, noses, trotters and tails.  I am waiting for your answers, extra Dojo points if you take part.


Keep safe,



Mrs Rymer.smiley

Monday 20th April.


Good morning Little Acorns,


I hope you are well and have enjoyed what would have been the Easter holidays.

My question is, did you get lots of chocolate treats?  Mrs Rymer had far to many.wink


Our Topic this term is "Once upon a time..."

So we will be looking at one of my favourite tales over the next couple of weeks, The Three Little Pigs.  If you have the story at home please share it with each other if you can.

Could you use an Ipad/tablet/laptop at home to find the story?  Make sure an adult checks the site.  

Are the stories all the same?  Do they have different endings?

I would really like to know.

As it is Monday, we would be taking part in Cosmic Yoga this afternoon.  If you ask an adult to help you google Cosmic Yoga, The Three Little Pigs, you can still take part.



Please keep safe and keep sending me your photos.smiley


Mrs Rymer.

Learning opportunities at home.


Popcorn Football/Olympics - use straws to blow popcorn along the table to a goal at end or add obstacles to go over or around.

Fashion shoot - everyone at home to dress up in their best clothes and then take photos.

Make an Easter hat or bonnet.

Create a touch and feel bag - place an object inside a bag.  Get someone to guess what's inside by just feeling it?

Play some favourite rings games - farmers in his den, ring a ring a roses.

Make some wrapping paper - dip cut potatoes or carrots into paint then press them onto paper.

Make your own play dough or salt dough and use it to make models.

Decorate your own Easter card.

Guess the animal - without making any noise, act like the animal try an elephant, cat or penguin.

Try building a tall tower using dried spaghetti and one 30cm piece of sticky tape.


Thursday 2nd April.


Good morning,


What a beautiful day.smiley


I have been for a lovely long walk already this morning enjoying the peace, quiet and sunshine.


Thank you for all your wonderful pictures and messages over the last couple of weeks.  It's great to see

Thank you for all your pictures yesterday, it was great to see what you have been up to.

I can see that you enjoyed the shape hunt, so could you make some shape pictures today? 

Show me your cutting skills for extra dojos.


If your grown up has signed up free to twinkl, there are more shape activities for you to try.

Tuesday 31st March.

Good Morning,


Did you remember the pig's houses were made of straw, sticks and bricks?   Well done if you did.


Please keep sending in your photos, I like to see what you have been getting up to.


Today I wonder if you can look for 2d shapes inside or outside?  If you have access to Twinkl there is a worksheet to help '2d shape hunt'.

Please remember Twinkl is free to sign up to at the moment and it has lots of ideas, activities and PowerPoints for you all to take part in.


Extra dojo points for the Little Acorn that finds the most 2d shapes.

Monday 30th March.


Good morning,


I am getting ready for PE this morning with Joe Wicks, are you?


I have just looked out of my window and it's a bit of a splishy sploshy day, so I think I will go outside after PE in my wellies and puddle jump.

Could you do that too?  I would love to see photos if you do.


This afternoon I am going to read a story - The Three Little Pigs.  What did the pigs make their houses from?  I look forward to your answers.


Please keep sending me your pictures and photos.  :)

Friday 27th March.


Good morning everyone,


Wow it's a bit chilly, but so sunny.

I have just said 'hello' to the chickens and collected another two eggs.  Maybe today you could count how many eggs you have

at home.  Should we count the Easter eggs too?


Miss Gray, the children and I are getting ready for Joe Wicks at 9am this morning.

If you are taking part please send in some pictures, I would love to see them.  You can always get your grown up to take part as well.

Learning opportunities at home.


Sing together a favourite nursery rhyme - shout, whisper, rap and dance to the beat.

Paper chain rainbows - use the colours of the rainbow in sequence.

Indoor camping - use an old sheet/blanket, move the furniture, turn out the lights and use torches.

Adult to help web search good morning in another language.

Make a paper pirate hat.

Fruit/vegetable faces.

Learning to juggle with 2 pairs of socks - if you are good at that try 3 pairs!!

Make a weather chart.

Treasure Hunt inside or outside.

Make a time capsule.





Useful websites.



Hope some of these ideas help.  Please don't feel their is any pressure to do them all, but I will be updating the weekly ten on a Thursday.
