The Acorns worked very hard making Easter bonnets over the Easter break. We all had an opportunity to show off our hats and see others.
We all enjoyed making and talking about our bonnets. Mrs Murrell was very proud of all her Acorns and the effort they had put into making their hats.
The Reception children carried water on our Lenten walk to remind us of children and adults who have to walk miles for water. During our walk we were thinking about Jesus.
Thank you for all your sponsorship money. This will be going to the CAFOD charity as part of our Lenten fundraising. See if you can talk about our walk at home.
The Acorns went to the library. We walked to the library, talking about our local community. See if the you can take a walk and talk about the local community.
We were able to read a story as a class and predict what would come next. The Librarian also talked to us about her job.
During the holiday see if you can take a trip to the library and
enjoy reading a wide range of books.
Acorns and Conkers joined together to celebrate world book day. We retold different stories,
acted them out and predicted what would happen next.
The children and teachers dressed up as characters from books. We were able to talk about our costumes and used describing words in order to do this.
The children wrote stories, sequenced them and decorated characters from
different fairytale books. They enjoyed taking part in a treasure hunt where they had to read clues and find little red riding hood's lost treasure.
The Acorns and Conkers demonstrated reflection whilst thinking about their characters and how each are different or the same. Can you draw your characters at home and write about them?
Welcome to the Acorns Class Page
This week the Acorns and Conkers joined together
to learn about and perform different poems.
See if you can talk about some of these poems at home. Below are a few links to lead you to the poems. Can you remember what they were about?
Dancing for Charity
The Acorns and Conkers danced to raise money for charity.
The Acorns were raising money for water for a family, as part of their Advent preparations.
Think about how you could raise money for charity at home.
Please visit this page to find out
what your child has been learning and for any useful websites and activities
that could further support your child.
Monday- Homework and Books are changed. Your observations as parents/ guardians are crucial and form an essential part of your child's learning journey. Mrs Murrell will start to set homework using websites and these can be found on here each week.
Wednesday- Wednesday Word's are sent home for you and your child to share time in reflective prayer.
Friday- Newsletters are given out.
Uniform- Please make sure your child is wearing the correct uniform
and that it is clearly labelled.
You may have heard your child mentioning 'Dojo points' at school. These are to replace house points and are strongly linked to our values. Each child has their own avatar and as they are awarded more points, they get to see their avatar grow. Points are given out when a child has consistently showed one or other values throughout the day. Please celebrate this with your children.
The Acorns have been talking about how to develop strong
bodies and strong hands. We understand that by following
a healthy and balanced diet, exercising and keeping clean and hygienic we develop stronger bodies.
We have been continuing to develop the strength of
our bodies in different ways. This week we have been dancing and creating good hygiene posters to develop our strong bodies and raise awareness of how to maintain good hygiene.
Can you exercise at home and remember the ways in which we need to wash our hands?
We have also been practising our new 'Dough Disco'- a programme where we use play dough and move our hands and fingers in different ways, in order to strengthen them.
See if you can you follow the 'Dough Disco' at home in order to continue to improve the strength of your fingers. This will help you to manipulate tools when writing. Mrs Murrell has put a link on for you to access at home below.
