17th July – The end of a very strange term – our final week of summer term in the Acorn bubbles
And so we have come to the final day of this very unusual school year.
This week the children from both Acorn bubbles and the pirate bubble met on the field for a mini sports day .
We all sat in a different area of the field and cheered on one another’s bubbles as the children did their races. We enjoyed lots of races including egg and spoon, bean bag on the head, hurdling, hoop skipping races and an obstacle course . Then it was time for a picnic on the field followed by an ice lolly treat.
Up at forest school this week the reception children have been very busy building dens. We have worked in small teams of four and the children have planned and made some superb, waterproof dens . Today, amid great excitement, we took our lunch up to forest school with us and had picnic lunches in these dens – what fun!
We also had another very special job to do today which was to bury our time capsule. Each of us has made a very special booklet about ourselves now and we put these booklets into a tin along with a special letter to our future (10 year old) selves . We hope that, when we are big and in Year 5 and just before we leave Ashton First School, we will be able to find and dig up our time capsule and see how things have changed.
In the preschool bubble this week the children have had great scientific fun exploring different types of gloop and jellybath slime and using wonderful language to describe the different textures .
We have thoroughly enjoyed our year in Acorn Class and it has been a real delight to share in so many adventures with our little people, even though our time in school together has been interrupted. This year has certainly been one which none of us will forget . It has been a real delight to have many of our Acorn children back in school over recent weeks and we look forward to September when we hope that we will all be able to be back together in school once again. In the meantime we wish you all a wonderful summer.
