Acorn

Welcome to Acorn class

 

We are a small mixed class of Reception and Year 1 children. As we welcome our new children into Acorn class, we will be learning the rules and routines of the classroom and how these keep us safe.

We will be thinking about 'Ourselves' and what makes us special.

 

We have been reading 'The Dot' which has helped us to understand that sometimes we may not be able to do something straight away, but if we don't give up we can achieve great things. Acorn Class are learning to be 'Have a Go Heroes'!

This term in Maths we are focusing on Careful 1:1 counting, being able to recognise the corresponding digit. We will be counting forwards and backwards, using songs and rhymes to help us. In Year 1 we will also be recognising and writing numbers in digits and words.

We will be creating models and patterns using a range of resources including blocks, threading and natural objects.

Our artist focus this term is Andy Goldsworthy. We will be discussing his use of shapes and patterns in natural sculptures and will be recreating our own using natural materials.

 Welly Wednesday

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 Spring. We will be doing a lot of activities to support the local environment and wildlife, including making bird feeders and animal shelters.
