We hope everybody had a great Easter break, we're not sure where the time went but here we are having already completed our first week of the summer term! This half term in Acorns our topic is 'Once upon a time' throughout this topic we will be looking at well known fairytales and exploring a range of learning opportunities through it. This week we focused on The Gingerbread Man, we did some fantastic story re-telling using actions and a story map to help us, we made our own gingerbread men, hopefully they didn't try running away and we drew gingerbread men using 2D shapes. We also spent lots of this week watching clips of different sports from the Commonwealth Games. The children are so knowledgeable about a wide range of sports, we were really impressed. Watching these lead to discussions about the scoring systems, dedication required to be the best you can be and respect. In our PE lesson we all shook hands after completing some relay activities and said well done to each other like we had seen the professional athletes do. We also discussed the flags of each country as one of the children pointed out our (England) flag was different to when we had seen some of the Winter Olympics as we were then competing as Great Britain. A fantastic first week back!
