AM/PM ACORNS - Miss Hill

Welcome to Lower Foundation Stage


Miss Hill -


In our Lower Foundation Stage we have up to 26 children in two sessions; one in the morning from 8:30-11:30am and the afternoon session from 12:00-3:00pm.


The staff members are Miss Hill the teacher and Mrs Davys the Nursery Nurse.


Our children learn through exploring, investigating and playing. The day is broken up into sessions and includes phonics, maths and storytime in groups and free play sessions. During the free play sessions, all staff work with the children to achieve objectives that are focused and unique to each child.


Whilst your child is on their exciting journey through Lower Foundation Stage they will be developing their self-help skills and independence. You can help them with this by encouraging them to:


  • Be independent at going to the toilet
  • Put on their own coats and zip them up
  • Put on their own shoes/wellies
  • Find their own coat, bag and accessories such as hats, gloves and water bottles
  • Recognise their name


Every child has a named coat peg and they are encouraged to place their belongings on their peg independently.  Please could parents refrain from entering the cloakroom.


The children are encouraged throughout the day to drink water to ensure they are well hydrated. Please send your child to school with a named water bottle.

Please note these should not be filled with juice/flavoured water.



Your child should wear uniform which follows our school policy. In Foundation Stage your child will need appropriate clothing all year round for outdoor play. In winter, please make sure you send your child to school with a waterproof coat, hat, scarves and gloves.

In summer, please send your child with a sun hat and with their sun cream having already been applied at home.


It is a good idea to send a pair of wellies to school with your child for all year round as we will use them daily when playing on the grass, in the mud kitchen and for water play.

Please remember to label ALL items of clothing and shoes as this will help return lost property as soon as possible.


If your child is going to require spare clothes please put them in a named bag. If your child requires help with toileting please see Miss Hill or Mrs Davys.




Every child receives a book bag when they attend Nursery. We politely that these are brought daily for their pictures, information letters and library book.
