Welcome to Acorns

Where Playing Is Learning ! 

Acorns are taught by Mrs Fiona Sewter - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays and by Mrs Emma Jeffery on Thursdays and Fridays. They are supported by Mrs Andrea Smith, Miss Kim Hines and Mrs Pauline Boots. Mr Lee Bastyan is a student teacher based in Acorns this year.


We are really pleased to be back at Nursery after Easter and to see all our friends again. We are especially pleased to welcome Mr Bastyan back. We are looking forward to learning all about the seaside this half term. We have already been exploring lots of shells and finding out who might have lived in them and we have been thinking about courage... It took a lot of courage to hold a real fish!

Learning in Acorns

At Clyst Heath Nursery and Community Primary School we strive to foster a love of learning, a strong sense of curiosity and the determination and resilience to persevere and succeed within our youngest children. To achieve this we have a team of highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants who are passionate about early years education and share the belief that ‘play is truly a child’s work’.

If you would like to know more about the Early Years Foundation Curriculum, the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what your child will be learning at Nursery, then click on the EYFS Parent Guide document located on this page.

Please take the time to have a look at some recent examples of our learning and if you like what you see come and visit us—we have regular open mornings which are always advertised on our website.

Come and look what we’ve found…
This is heavier than I thought…
A little bit of peace and quiet with my favourite book
I want to be a robot
Because two pens are always better than one!
I wonder how many cups I can fill with one jug of water?
The next One Direction is born!
What shall we cook for dinner tonight?
Mmmmm, how am I going to get across here?
Today I’m interested in squares....
... yesterday I liked stripes!
