Welcome to Acorn Class in EYFS

In Acorn Class, the children develop a love for learning through child-initiated, group work and one-to-one activities. We promote a growth mindset in Acorn Class, where the children develop the opportunities to grow because they understand that they can improve their abilities by pushing themselves and not giving up! The children will encourage each other to try their best and understand it’s ok if they can’t do it….. yet.

Our PE day will be a Friday, please ensure your child wears their PE kit into school on this day and we ask if all clothing could be named, thank you.

We look forward to welcoming you into Acorn Class!


Our timetable can be downloaded below. Here, parents and pupils have the opportunity to view the class schedule to see the day-to-day routine including the range of curriculum that is covered. We have found that children with SEND have responded well to visually seeing the structure of the day ahead.

Terms/Topic Information

Curriculum planning here at Sedley’s follows a thematic approach, with topics at the heart of each term of learning. We have a programme mapped out for the year in which we make meaningful links so that learning opportunities are maximised.  Teaching staff have developed the themes for our children to explore, ensuring coverage of the National Curriculum Programmes of Study.  These plans, however, are fluid and are developed, revised and changed according to the needs and interests of the children.

More Infomation about the subjects can be found on our curriculum pages.
