Ashton Under Hill First School

Shaping Bright Futures Together


The Mexican Cinderella story was a good way to introduce Acorn Class to life in a different country.  We found out about the lives of children living in Mexico City and imagined a flight there, thinking about what we would pack and how it would feel to take a long aeroplane journey.  We made passports to take to each country and use in our role play.

We have learnt how to play the maracas and have been trying to beat them in time to 'La Bamba'.  We also started to make a pinata out of papier mache, which was great fun but not very successful! We have been playing outside a lot, making wonderful assault courses, playing on trikes, in addition to lots of counting and listening for initial sounds of words.
