Acorns 2019 - 2020

Miss Daniels

I am delighted to be teaching at Whitegate C of E Primary School and being part of the school community. This is my second year as Reception Teacher at Whitegate and I love being part of each child's learning journey. I feel passionate about helping Reception children settle into school life and feel privileged to welcome new parents and their children. My passion is making learning exciting and enjoyable for all children. Outside of school I like to spend time with my family and 'try' to keep fit.

Note to Parents/Carers

Acorns parents/carers… Thankyou to those who have shared photos, videos and comments on tapestry. I absolutely love to see them. If you haven't, please could you send me a quick email just so that we know all is well. Thank you.

As it is the Easter holidays next week, this will be last jigsaw until Monday 20th April.  However, I will be uploading the St John’s virtual church service each Monday morning.

Happy Easter to you all. 

Stay Safe.


Safe Remote Learning

As we adapt to these strange circumstances and establish new routines we need to ensure that our children remain safe online.  Please visit to see how you can keep informed to assist in maintaining the safety and well-being of your children and family, when using the internet.


EYFS Remote Learning

Please find attached below a daily jigsaw puzzle containing several activities for your child to complete whilst at home. Remote learning activities have been carefully planned around the EYFS seven areas of learning.  Please do not worry if children are not able complete all the daily learning challenges on the jigsaw the children’s happiness and wellbeing is our biggest priority! It is important to us that the children enjoy their learning so please feel free to select the activities which engage children’s interests and to do other activities based on your child’s interests EG: build a den, make a cake etc. It is however important that the children keep up with their daily Phonics, Literacy and Maths activities

I will look forward to seeing the work the children have completed on Tapestry.
