Term 3 Week 4
This week we have been learning about the Police. We were very lucky to have George's dad come in and tell us all about what it was like to be a Police Officer. We have learnt about finger prints and had a go ourselves. We looked at enlarged fingerprints and could see that they are all different. We also took robbers out of jail to learn subtraction. The children enjoyed making pictures with the tap tap hammers, a really good fine motor activity.
Term 3 Week 3
This week we have been very busy learning about Chinese New Year. The children have learnt that this year is the year of the rat. Some of Acorn Class were born in the year of the Horse and some in the year of the Goat. We have tasted Chinese food which everyone tried and written Chinese writing. The children had a problem to solve this week. They needed to make an envelope to hold six coins. This linked with our learning about money and the Chinese custom of giving red envelopes when it is new year.
We are practising our handwriting and lots of children are making fantastic progress forming their letters correctly.
We have been singing days of the week, months of the year and seasons songs. The children are learning them well and feel really proud when they do.
We also spent some time at Forest School looking at seasonal changes.
Phew! What a busy week!

This week we have been learning about the people who help us in school. We have used question words to ask Mr Elgar about his job. We have looked at materials and which would be the best to be waterproof. We have been learning addition in our maths and had great fun playing with some new class resources with our friends.
