5th March : Acorn class on countdown!!
This week we have been on countdown and we are all very excited to be coming back to school next Monday!
On 1st March we found out about St David’s Day , listened to the story of ‘Elen Benfelen a’r Tair Arth’ (that’s ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’) read in welsh by the lovely Mrs Clayton, investigated and made daffodils and explored google earth to locate wales and many other places as well.
Our theme this week has been farm animals and we have enjoyed a range of stories which have led us into map making, creative writing, ladybird themed maths, weighing and measuring and all sorts of creative activities from biscuit making to rock chicks.
However the big excitement of the week was on Wednesday when we had 30 members of Acorn reception and preschool together on a googlemeet and we put some chicken eggs into the incubator in our classroom. If we look after them carefully over the next three weeks, and are very lucky, we hope to have some baby chicks in Acorn class just before Easter.
On Thursday many of us chose to dress up for World Book Day as well as creating our own gallery of dressed potato storybook characters .
