Acorns Class

(Term 1)

Ourselves.

We are welcoming our brand new Acorns with great excitement this term! The new Reception children will be settling into their new class and getting to know each other and their new school. The grown up Year 1’s will be taking on more responsibility in the classroom this year and will be spending more time working in the Year 1 area to make it a learning zone that they can call their own.

This year we will hit the ground running and jump straight into our first topic: ‘Ourselves’. We will be investigating all the things that make us, us. This is a brilliant first term topic to get to know all the things we are really good at and the things that we are interested in which may help us with our learning.

Philosophy and Literacy we will be focusing on feelings and emotions, using existing stories and making up our own stories through ‘Helicopter Story Telling’ to discuss how and why people might feel a certain way.

In Science we will be learning all about our body and senses and what we can do to help our body be healthy!

We are also welcoming two new adults to the classroom, making Team Acorns even more awesome!

Please come and talk to us if you want to find out more. We will be sending home class newsletters to keep you informed with any important information and also events that are coming soon.

(Term 2)

Toys

Everyone loves to play and this term we will be exploring all things toys! We will be investigating what toys children from all around the world play with and we will look into the history of toys themselves as well as the materials used to make them. We will be creating our own Toy Museum that the grownups from home will be invited to, as well as the rest of the school.

Having been to school for a whole term now, the Reception Acorns are practically part of the furniture! And our Year 1’s are experts at being responsible Key Stage 1 learners. We will continue with all our hard work and efforts in our learning,

With Christmas just around the corner, this term will include the Key Stage 1 Nativity play, the Acorns and Willows will join forces to amaze you all with their performance.

We will be working on lots of Christmas songs and stories throughout the term as well as producing some winter poetry.
