Welcome to Acorn class
We are a small mixed class of Reception and Year 1 children Our topic focus this term is 'Light and Dark - we will be investigating different sources of light, including the Sun (following on from last terms space topic.) We will be learning about different winter celebrations including Bonfire night, Divali, Thanks Giving and Christmas, how they are celebrated within different families.
In Literacy we will be learning about rhyming words, writing simple poetry and applying our phonic skills into writing simple sentences.
In maths we will be counting in 2's, 5's and 10's and solving addition and subtraction sums.
Outdoor learning is a big part of our learning in Acorn Class. Children will need a waterproof coat with a hood, wellies, extra socks and an extra layer of clothing (such as waterproof trousers or jogging bottoms) - we will be going out whatever the weather! We will be thinking about how the environment and weather is changing leading up to winter. We will be doing a lot of activities to support the local environment and wildlife, including making bird feeders and animal shelters.
