Hello Acorn Families!
I hope you have had a good week - it has been lovely to see the sun out at last! I've seen plenty of signs of Spring around when I have been out and about this week - what about you?

Thank you so much for all of the home learning you sent in last week - We're going on a bear hunt is certainly proving popular both at home and in school! We have loved seeing the pictures of what the children are learning at home and awarding them with Dojo's.
Don't forget to keep sending photos of learning in - there will be a
prize at the end of the week for the children who have completed the most home learning challenges... 
We are looking forward to welcoming the children back to Acorns Nursery on the 8th March. Look out for a letter about with more information about our return shortly...
Your child's key person  will be in regular contact with you during lockdown. They will be on hand to support with home learning and answer any questions or queries you may have...
Work will be placed on our web page and class dojo weekly - I will try and send out a list of resources a few days in advance just in case you want to get ready...
The nursery mobile is always on - please leave a message or voicemail if need be! 07753 861879
The nursery team have recorded some story and rhyme sessions which can be found further down the page. This way you can watch them at your leisure and they will not interfere with live learning sessions for the older children...
