Acorns - Reception

Welcome to Acorns!

Abbeywood First School is a happy and exciting place to learn. In Reception, our warm and nurturing environment provides children with endless opportunities to play, explore, question and discover.


We aim to: 

  • inspire creativity 
  • foster curiosity inside and outside 
  • build confidence and resilience
  • promote independence 
  • develop emotional well-being
  • encourage kindness and empathy 


At Abbeywood, we support children to develop a love of learning whilst experiencing quality learning opportunities. 



Children should bring the following each day:

  • water bottle 
  • coat
  • book bag
  • lunchbox or lunch ordered via ParentPay


PE kit, wellies and waterproof all in one should be kept in school so children can access outdoor no matter what the weather!
