Wk1 Term 2
Welcome back to all of the lovely Acorns.
I hope you all had a great half term.
We have had another busy and fun week. We have learnt about how to stay safe on bonfire night and thought about all of the words we could use to describe fireworks. We even sounded some out and wrote them down. We have been practising our tricky words. Remember these are words that don’t sound out so we need to keep looking at them. In maths we started to add two groups together using the part, part, whole method. On Thursday we took part in a whole school art project. Our buddies in Oak class were on hand to help us out. Our finished work will be displayed in the Orchard room.
The Leaves have been fun too!
Term 2 Week 2
Our learning this week has been based on the Three Little Pigs. We have ordered the story on a story map and retold the story using our 'Talk for Writing' method. Ask the children if they can remember the actions we used to tell the story.
In maths we used the words heavier and lighter to describe the bricks, sticks and straw that the pigs houses were made from. We all found an item in the classroom that was lighter than a brick.
We listened to the Last Post on Friday and had a minute silence to remember the soldiers from the wars.
Happy Birthday to Libby and Ollie.
Term 2 Week 3
This week Acorn Class have been learning about the Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have retold and ordered the story using a story journey and actions. We used adjectives to describe the troll and have made fantastic bridges for the goats to cross over the river. We were careful to make sure that the goats could get on to the bridge and that it was long enough to cross the river. Jacob and Eli even build sides on their bridge so that the goats wouldn’t fall off.
On Tuesday Adele a dental health expert came in to talk to the children about how to look after their teeth. I wonder if they remember how they should brush and how much toothpaste they should use.
We all got the giggles making our trolls, we counted out how many eyes, horns and legs we wanted them to have. We hope you like them!
Week 4 Term 2
“Oh help! Oh no! It’s a Gruffalo!”
Well its Gruffalo soup at least!
This week we have probably had too much fun! We have been looking for Gruffalo’s in the school grounds. We decided that to stop the Gruffalo wanting to eat the mouse we would make him some Gruffalo soup. For our Maths we shared out the ingredients we needed, and for our English we followed instructions to make the soup.
We had a Forest School session looking at habitats and at what animals might live in the school grounds (a family of moles seen to have taken up residence) we saw a squirrel and a bright green caterpillar, I wonder if he was hungry.
We took our soup outside to eat and left a bowl for the Gruffalo.
It was so yummy, I bet he never wants to eat a mouse again.
Happy Birthday Riley!
Week 5 Term 2
Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
The Children looked fantastic today in all of their jumpers, nobody had the same one on which was amazing!
The elves have been in to the classroom and transformed it ready for all of the festive fun.
A special visitor has been today. He's a bit early but I suppose he has lots to do.
We have also been learning this week, in between nativity performances.
The children love our new maths resource Numicom, they have been using it to order to 10, take away and work out 1 less. We have some fabulous mathematicians!
Week 6 Term 2
What a busy week!
We have made lots of Christmas craft. We have even printed our own wrapping paper using a repeating pattern. we hope you like it.
We have also been practicing really hard for our Christmas performance.
There are a few little bits to iron out, but we hope you enjoy the show next week!
Term 2 Week 7
What a fantastic and busy term. Looking back we have done some super things. The children are really well settled now and are all learning their sounds at a great rate. The reading is fabulous with all children beginning to blend some sounds together to make words. They are such superstars.
This last week has been very busy with the children enjoying our Nativity performances and the Panto and our little party and Church, phew! I think we all need a rest.
Thank you for all of your support throughout the term, from reading at home to packed lunches in carrier bags to bringing them back at quite a late hour for some of us. It really is appreciated and your support makes our job so much easier.
Have a lovely Christmas
