We have been learning how to use the language of size this week. The children ordered from biggest to smallest and found things in the classroom bigger and smaller than a given object.
Term 1 week 4
We have been learning about our teeth this week. We looked at how we should clean them and were given a toothbrush and some tooth paste each. We sang some songs and looked at NHS advice.
Term 1 Week 3
We have looked closely at acorns and how they grow this week. We have planted our own acorns. I really hope they grow.
We also listened very carefully to different musical instruments to see if we could remember what they are called. Then we made some of our own music. It got very loud!
Term 1 Week 2
Well done Acorns! we had a lovely lunch today. The children enjoyed their school dinners, they had lots of help from the Teachers and our year 6 buddies.
Should school really be this much fun?
At Elham it is!
Acorn Class had their first taste of Forest School today. We explored our lovely Forest School area and found some really interesting things. We saw animal homes in the ground and in trees, and looked at the perfect circles made by the local woodpeckers. The children we able to build and explore, learning how to manage their own risk and building their gross and fine motor control by manipulating the natural resources in their play. They worked together and managed their own groups, helping each other and sharing. The free play they participated in is a fab way of building friendship groups as well as of course having lots of fun.
