Dear Parents/Carers



Summer Term 2018


Welcome back to Summer Term 2018 in Acorns Foundation Stage. We hope that you have all had a lovely Easter break.

We welcome all our new families, who have joined in Little Acorns this term.


Attached is the planning that your child(ren) will be following this term. We will begin by exploring different lifecycles and mini-beasts.

Please ask if you have any questions or if you feel you have any resources that could support us for this topic.


Summer Weather – Please ensure that your child has a sun hat, sun cream and a water bottle in school daily.

Children need to come into school, already wearing sun cream and we will reapply sun cream before the hottest parts of the day.


Transition into School– There will be a series of events in the 2nd half of this summer term, to prepare your child for starting school. Dates about these events will be sent home in June and you will be able to meet your child’s new class teacher at the Open Evening (date to be confirmed). Information about transition into school will follow.


Illness – Please ensure that you keep your child at home if they are unwell. We have had occasions where children have been brought into school and have been unwell. If you are unsure of the school’s policy on certain illnesses, please call and speak to us or refer to our school website. We follow guidance from Devon LEA on times children need to be away from school. If your child has had sickness, they must be off for 48 hours after their last bout of sickness. Please ensure you contact the school to inform us of your child’s illness before 9.00am. If you do not contact the school your child will be marked in as an unauthorised absence.


This is busy, exciting term and we look forward to welcoming you at the events above. Please do not hesitate to come and speak to any of us if you have any questions, queries or concerns.


Kind regards


Donna and Becky
