Welcome to Acorns

Dear Children and Families,

I look forward to welcoming you and your families to Whitegate CE Primary School. I am really looking forward to meeting you all and helping you settle into school life. We are going to have lots of fun in Acorns class, learning and making friends. We are going to start the year off in Reception by learning all about ourselves.

I look forward to working with you all over the coming months.

Remote Learning Document Week Beginning 23.11.20






Things to remember:


Learning to read is one of the most important skills your child will learn in the Early Years. The more children read, the more confident and fluent they will become, so one of the most important things you can do at home is encourage your child to read every day. The expectation in Acorns is that children read with an adult at least 5 times a week. Please sign and write a comment in your child’s reading diary when they read.

Your child will read regularly to an adult in school, so reading books need to be sent into school every day. Reading books will be changed 3 times a week.


Reception PE will start week beginning 14th September. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE Kit on the days they have PE. Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Children will not need to bring their uniform to school as they will stay in their PE kits all day.



Reception are given the opportunity to learn outdoors every day whatever the weather so please ensure that your child has a waterproof coat, preferably with a hood in school every day.


Fruit and Milk/ Water

Please do not send water bottles into school. Reception children have fruit, milk and water provided. The children will have access to water throughout the day using disposable cups.
