Acorns have been busy battling all weathers this term! We have been getting out and about exploring our environment around Langton with nature walks, with only one muddy puddle dive(!), using the allotment to learn about how the fruits and vegetables grow and also plotting our walks on our very own maps. We have carried on our yoga focus every fortnight with our new yoga teacher, Sam, and have been busy on bear hunts and visiting the hungry caterpillar!
In maths we have been learning about ordering things by height, sharing things equally (with the help of some yummy pancakes!) and working hard with our adding and subtracting, too. Our reading and writing is coming along fantastically, and we have enjoyed using different materials for our writing - including cling film around the table legs!
We all worked very hard on our World Book Day celebration class assembly for parents, talking about our favourite books and all reciting 'The Gruffalo' from memory, which was brilliant. We have also introduced 'Acorns' Story Share': everyday a different child has the opportunity to read their school book to the whole class to celebrate our progress in reading.
Science is still a big focus and with Dr Jackson's help, Science Day was a big hit! The day was full of slime, bath bombs and creating the ocean in a bottle, lots of fantastic vocabulary and predictions about what the children thought was going to happen and explanations about what they could see. We have now enjoyed our Easter egg hunt and have worked hard getting ready for the Easter service which we hope everyone enjoyed. We're now all ready for a well-deserved rest to get ready for the busy Summer Term!
