Acorn Class Reception and Year 1

Welcome to Acorn Class


Acorn Class is our first class.

It has twenty Year R pupils and 10 Y1s. This class is taught by Mrs Gray (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Lakin-Hall (Wednesday-Friday).  We also have Mrs Summerscales and Mrs Johnson (TAs) in our class to help support the children with their learning.


Children in Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and children in Year 1 follow Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum. We combine this learning in a learning map for each term. The annual plans and termly plans are added to our class page below.

Phonics and Reading


We teach phonics in the Early Years and Key Stage 1 through ‘Little Wandle’ using a synthetic phonics approach. We use 'PhonicsPlay' online as a useful resource of games and activities to develop skills.

We use ‘Book Bands’ to organise a range of reading materials for children learning to read.

In the Early Years Foundation Stage, books are sent home from the reading scheme, once a pupil is a confident 'blender' of the first 19 phonemes.



If your child has to self-isolate, it is expected that children at home will complete their learning as set by teachers.

Please go to your child's Online Learning Platform 'Seesaw' to access a range of personalised, allocated  activities.
