Slide Show 


We have had such a busy week in Acorn Class. Our caterpillars have certainly grown and are in the next stage of their life cycle. Sadly, some of the chrysalides have been knocked, be we are hopeful that they might survive. This has led to some fantastic learning opportunities, thinking about our school values, especially respect.
In Science as well as developing our work on lifecycles we have been linking a science ‘revisit’ to one of our favourite stories ‘Superworm’ this story contains so many interesting animals which we have been grouping and classifying.
We have also been looking at our River of Hope work for the Jubilee, we have found out that during the last 60 years the River Thames has gone from being declared “biologically dead” by scientists at London's Natural History Museum to being considered one of the world's cleanest rivers running through a city! We have learnt about some of the things the river is used for and what it means to many people and communities as well as their aspirations and hope for the River’s future. We thought about our hopes, wishes and aspirations for ourselves, our communities and the wider world and we have included some of these ideas in our artwork.
In our English work we have been looking at the book The Queen’s Hat’. Oh my goodness the Queen has been on some adventures trying to get her hat back! We have decided that she might need to think about our 3B’s as we are not sure she is being very safe, respectful or ready, but do not worry Acorn Class will be able to help her if she ever pops by!
We have worked so hard on our fabulous writing, we have been exploring and using onomatopoeia, alliteration, similes, repetition for effect… as well as really improving our use of capital letters, finger spaces and full stops!
In maths this week we have been exploring teen numbers further, in year 1 we have been looking at the value of the digits and deepening our understanding. In Reception we have been exploring how the quantity of groups can change. We all really enjoy our maths adventures and have been reading some great books about mathematicians and how they use their skills in life!
We have really been enjoying our weather log this week, which has surprised us every day, every time we start to explore seasonal changes the weather seems to surprise us! Our outdoor classroom has been a busy spot too this week, the grass is growing rapidly and our flowers still all look amazing, we have been thinking about some of the other things we would like to plant- herbs that we could use in our adventures perhaps!? If you have any spare compost or herb plants please let us know.
Thank you for all of the great notes and feedback in the Yellow reading log books. The children have been working really hard in their phonics sessions and have enjoyed reading their new books, reading for prosody is always a fun read, we were using a ‘sing song’ voice in one story this week! Please may I ask that all books are back in school on Friday morning, this enables resources to be collected together for the following weeks work. We have had a few drink bottle problems making bags and books wet, so on the suggestion of a very helpful Reception Acorn we are making sure that we carry them separately! Thank you Acorn Class you are full of great ideas and solutions!
I am looking forward to a busy Friday, we are thinking about health in our PSHE, healthy eating, lifestyles and routines, last week we loved reading ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and helping him to pack a healthy picnic.
Have a fabulous weekend Acorn Class and I really look forward to all of our adventures next week. One child noticed that our learning journey wall is getting quite full, but we are going to make use of every last bit of space!
