W/C 26th March- We have lots of exciting Easter activities planned, including Easter basket making, chocolate nests and Easter egg hunts.

W/C 19th March- We has a fantastic time with our families on Thursday's stay and play session. Our families were invited to join in our exciting Easter activities. On Friday we shared our lovely singing voices with our families and friends in our end of term singing assembly.

W/C 12th March- We all had a fantastic time on Wednesday on our school trip to Cannon Hall farm. We were so lucky and managed to see lots of baby animals. We enjoyed a petting experience, a tractor ride and a trip into the reptile house. This trip has led us all to doing some fantastic writing and drawings to help us learn more about  Spring and New Life.  

W/C 19th February- We have all had a fantastic start back after the half-term holiday. We have enjoyed the start to our new topics of new life and spring time. Our classroom has been filled with lots of spring time activities. We enjoyed celebrating a late pancake day by tasting yummy pancakes with orange juice. 

W/C 8th January- We have had a fantastic first week back and really enjoyed seeing all our friends again. Our classroom has had an amazing make-over and we became stuck in straight away to new activities. Our new topic has been all about houses and homes. We have made some fantastic models and done some amazing writing about our homes and families. 


  W/C 4th December- We have all had a fantastic trip with the rest of the school to the pantomime to watch Beauty and the Beast. We loved singing and dancing along to all of the songs and dances. The rehearsals for our Nativity are continuing to get better and better. This term is proving to be a fantastic one and we cannot wait to celebrate Christmas time further. 


W/C 27th November- Santa's workshop is open for business! We have worked really hard to write out Christmas cards and notes to deliver around the workshop. Presents are getting wrapped and we have loved dressing as little elves. Outside we have been working really hard to make animal shelters to help the local wildlife this winter.


The 1st December has brought Acorns class a very exciting new friend. Eric the Elf has made an appearance, bringing with him lots of exciting challenges. Over the December month Eric will be setting us new challenges and tasks such as, helping him to form his letters correctly, having a try at writing new words, reading challenges, helping him with his maths (as we all know elves have lots of present counting to do), creating beautiful artwork and lots more. Eric will also be keeping an eye out for those extra special boys and girls who are good. 


W/C 20th November - Rehearsals are well under way for the nativity, 'Follow the Star'.  The children are all doing so well to learn their lines and song lyrics.  Well done!


 W/C 25th September- We have had a very busy week with lots of exciting things taking place. We have baked some yummy buns for the Macmillan bake sale, had fun and been creative with conkers to produce some wonderful autumn art. We have also taken home our first real reading books. 


W/C 9th October- We have enjoyed preparing, making and eating yummy vegetable soup. We looked at the story of Oliver's vegetables and decided that we could also make our own snacks and meals using healthy foods. We looked at where vegetables come from and enjoyed other activities using vegetables such as printing, role-play soup kitchens and farmyard small world. 

Wow Moments!  

Well done to Jacob, Sammy, Erin, Sophie, Roma and Emilia for earning a Merit Award this term. These six children have shown a fantastic effort in all of their work and are always willing to help others.

We had a fabulous time at Cannon Hall farm. We were so lucky and met lots of lovely farm animals. The trip helped us to learn lots about new life and Spring animals.

The children in Acorns class have been very excited to start taking home reading books. They have worked very hard to practice new phonic sounds and new words.

We had  a very exciting visit from Tesco. They talked to us about taking care of our bodies and making sure we try our best to eat health foods. We tried lots of different fruits and yogurts and all voted on our favorites. 

We are all very exited for Christmas and have worked very hard to help decorate the classroom with winter themed activities and decorations. We have prepared for the winter fayre by donating our old teddies and renaming them, ready for a lovely new home. The Nativity will soon be coming around and we are all working very hard to learn our lines and practice the songs. 





Winter fun!
