23rd April : Welcome back to the summer term in Acorn Class!
It has been so lovely to welcome our Acorns children back to school this week, refreshed and ready for an exciting term of adventures ahead and we have been so impressed by their enthusiasm for learning and by the superb work they have been doing.
We have been busy adding our ideas to the plan for the term ahead where we are exploring a theme of ‘Once upon a time’, however we are starting off the term organising a birthday party for all our children who have not been able to celebrate with their friends during lockdown. This has given us lots of opportunities for writing such things as lists , treasure hunt clues, instructions for games and invitations and some exciting open ended maths tasks counting and arranging candles on cakes, ordering birthday cards by age and solving problems.
Our preschool and reception children have also been hard at work preparing the school gardens for planting. We have delighted in the discovery of many worms and woodlice and have planted up pumpkins and our pea and marigold seedlings which we prepared last term.
