F2 (Reception) - Acorn Class
Welcome to F2
In our class we have 31 Foundation Stage 2 children who are aged 4-5 years. Our aim in the Foundation Stage is to have an immersive environment which the children can enjoy, learn and achieve. The children’s interests are important to us and we try and plan these into every opportunity of learning.
We have a busy, well-structured timetable with opportunities to explore the continuous provision and outdoor learning during these sessions. All activities are focused around hands on education where children are equipped to deepen their learning by questioning their experiences. We encourage children to think about their learning at all times, explaining their understanding.
As children begin their learning journey at Mexborough St John's, the Acorn Class is where they will first hear the expectation that they are members of the school and the wider community. They will learn the importance of choices and will be supported, encouraged and guided to make decisions that help them feel proud of themselves.

Each week we will send you an overview of what we will be learning during phonics lesson. This will help you to support your child at home with reading and writing
Ensuring that your child is reading regularly at home is the most important thing you can do to support their learning in English and other areas of the curriculum. As well as their own individual reading book and diary, they will be encouraged to bring home a book from the school library each week.
