Acorns Class (Years 1 and 2)

A Message from the Class Teacher Mrs Gaskain 



I am so happy to be the new Acorns Class teacher and I am really looking forward to meeting  you all when we get back to school and am really keeping my fingers crossed that it will be soon.

It's a funny start to the Summer term, even though the weather is lovely and very summery.  We are all getting to grips with remote learning.  In English this term, we will be looking at George's Marvellous Medecine and in our Maths we will be consolidating our knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and thinking about fractions. 

I hope that everyone is getting outside as much as they can during this difficult time and in our Science we will be thinking about the weather and how it changes.  We will also be thinking about our local area, which we will be able to explore individually.  It will be interesting to think about the differences between all the different areas we live in.  

I hope you are enjoying doing PE with Joe Wicks or with Cosmic Yoga.  I will also be giving you lots of different ideas of things to do in the afternoons.

It's important to remember that every family is different and you all have different amounts of time to support your children's learning.  I will try and make the learning as accessible as possible independently - children don't generally get 1:1 support in class, so you must let them get on with it as much as they are able.  Most importantly, please don't get stressed and look after YOUR relationship with your children during this difficult time.  

As always if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Acorn staff team. 

Thank you for helping us by supporting your child’s learning both at school and at home, which is invaluable to their continued progress. 

Mrs Gaskain
