Success for today; prepared for tomorrow. Nothing is beyond our reach.

Acacia - Reception

Teacher: Mrs Ngwa

Support Staff: Miss Mulligan

Coming up! 


Acacia's Class Assembly will be on Thursday 16th March at 3pm! Please come and support the children as they show you a bit about what they have been learning.


Trip to the Unicorn Theatre 

Our trip to the Unicorn Theatre will be on the 29th March. Please ensure your child is wearing school uniform and dressed appropriately for the weather.

Welcome back! We hope you all had a fantastic holiday break. This term our topic is 'Once upon a time'. We are looking at Traditional Tales and have been looking at the story of  'The Gingerbread man'. 


The children have been retelling the story to each other and have enjoyed role playing traditional tales in our new Fairy Tales Castle! It looks fantastic!


In Maths we have been doing lots of number work and the children have been working very well to recognise teen numbers and working on finding one more or less than a given number. 


We have started streaming for phonics with Year 1 and 2 every day. Thank you for sending in your child early as we recieved the early bird this week- this allowed them the chance to get as much out of their phonics sessions as possible from 9:05 every morning.


Don't forget to ensure your child has their P.E. kit back in school ready for P.E on Tuesday! 

More Reminders!

Thursday 15th at 2pm is our Nativity Performance. Please buy tickets from the main office!

If you are not sure what your child should be wearing for the performance, please speak to Miss Edwards!


Friday 16th is Elf day where staff and children come to school dressed up as Elves!


And on Monday 19th, is our Christmas Jumper Day!


The next Parent's meeting will be on Monday 14th November. Please check the times on Acacia's door for your appointed slot.

Our Class Assembly is on Thursday 1st December at 3pm!

Have a listen to the Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds (British English). Please practise these sounds with your child!

Listen to the 42 letter sounds of Jolly Phonics, spoken in British English. Each letter sound is clearly spoken twice, before an example word is given. Perfect for parents, teachers and children who aren't sure how to pronounce the letter sounds.
