What a fantastic first term we have had in Acorns. We have been very busy getting to know our new school, and enjoying our learning. We were very excited to get a visit from the local fire brigade, which linked into our ‘people who help us’ topic. They came and showed us their gear and even let us have a turn on the fire hose and hear the siren on the fire engine!
We also had a visit from our polar ambassador; Dr Jackson, and she helped us to understand how important the North and South Pole are to us. We enjoyed learning about ice and all the animals that live there.
We have been lucky to take part in regular yoga sessions every fortnight with pre-school, led by the lovely Katie. The children have got much better at listening and stretching their bodies for all the fantastic postures. Acorns have really enjoyed yoga as it gives us time to calm down and has helped us to concentrate on instructions better.
We have concentrated this term on the weather and changes in the seasons, so we have been busy exploring our environment and using what we find to help us in art, literacy, music, maths and drama.
Right now we are very busy putting the finishing touches to our amazing nativity and all our Christmas crafts! So all there is left to say is thank you for all your support this time and we wish you a very merry Christmas!
