Acorns have been taking full advantage of the sunshine this term! The children have been busy enjoying all the new resources in our garden; including the new mud kitchen and bug hotel. We have been out and about exploring the allotments and the neighbouring woodland trail again; recently using a wildlife checklist to identify different flowers that grow.
We have had an exciting visit from the Zoo lab where we met a wide variety of bugs and pets. We also visited Putlake farm in May to learn all about the animals and life on the farm. We continued with this topic back at school and created animal fact sheets using all that we had learnt.
We have been busy in the classroom too with lots of writing happening; Emma the elephant has been visiting everyone again for more adventures and staying over for tea. All the Acorns have done a great job of writing about it and we have even had a go at writing our own stories and making them into a book for the book corner.
This term we have been thinking about being healthy and we have enjoyed taking part in our daily mile and trying to run a little further each time. We have also had our running shoes on getting ready for sports day; all the Acorns are looking forward to competing with their houses. Now all that’s left is to get our bucket and spade ready for our bus trip to the beach trip!
