Term 3 Week 1
Welcome back Acorns. I hope you have had a super Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you so much for our lovely Christmas gifts.
Our learning this term will be themed around the people who help us, or our community heroes as we like to call them.
Have a look at our curriculum overview to see what we will be covering this term.
Term 2 Week 8
We have linked lots of our learning to the Christmas theme this week. We should all know the story of the Nativity now. We have also looked at Christmas around the world, thought about advent, and looked at popular Christmas stories. The children loved making Christmas biscuits and their Christingles for the church service.
We hope you have a lovely Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

Welcome back. We've had a lovely first week back. We have been consolidating the sounds we learnt last term. We also took advantage of the one nice day this week and had fun playing in the leaves. On Friday we went in the hall to do our Write Dance activities, this helps with gross and fine motor control and is great fun to do.

Book week had an amazing start with some traditional story telling by 'Tales from the Book of Life' The children experienced the spell binding stories accompanied by the harp, tin whistle and violin.

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.
