Welcome to Acorn class
We are a small mixed class of Reception and Year 1 children Our topic focus this term is 'Health and Growth' - our focus will be on how to keep ourselves healthy (including healthy eating and exercise), we will also be thinking about the changes to our environment during Spring and what plants need to stay healthy.
In Literacy we will be writing shopping lists, instructions, and stories based on repetitive language.
In maths we will be recognising UK coins and their values. Measuring using standard and non-standard measurements. We will be learning to count in 2's - with Year 1 beginning to understand how this relates to the 2x table.
Our PSHE focus will be making healthy choices, including healthy eating, exercise and looking after our teeth and bones.
In science we will look at the changes in our environment during Spring, through a range of nature walks and planting activities.
We will observe the changes that happen over time and record some of these changes through photography and art activities.
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 are continuing to develop our spinney area, which includes our handmade 'Bug Hotel', we will be thinking of new ways this term to attract different species of insects.
The value for February is LOVE.
