What a busy summer term the children in Acorn class have been having so far. The children have been working so hard and are really enthusiastic every day to learn new things and share their thoughts and ideas.
As the weather warms up, we have been moving some of our learning outside, completing Maths and English activities in the open air. We hope to continue this and use some of the natural resources in our work, particularly with our art and design topics.
In Art, we created a class butterfly using natural resources and have created chalk drawings of bees and butterflies on the playground.
We have been discovering the world of algorithms and programming in Computer Science, understanding how important giving clear instructions are in order for the correct things to happen. Acorn Class really enjoyed being silly robots - following instructions exactly as they were told, which meant children had shoes on their arms!
In Science, Acorn class has been learning all about animals and their diets, learning about omnivores, herbivores and carnivores. In Geography, they enjoyed using their postcodes to look at houses on maps and learning about map keys.
The children have continued to take part in the mile run each week and tell us how much they enjoy this activity on the school field.
There are lots more fun and engaging lessons planned for next term and we can't wait to share more new learning opportunities with the children.
All our best wishes from
Mrs Astle, Miss Bower and Mrs Hollard
