New Year!

posted 16 Jan 2020, 03:44 by Deputy Head
Acorns have had a busy start to the New Year! The topic in Acorns this half term is 'Explorers' and as part of that we have been learning about pirates. On the first day back Acorns all arrived in fantastic pirate costumes, we made a treasure hunt for another member of staff, tea stained our treasure maps to make them look old and made our own parrots out of cups. In our phonics lessons we have continued to develop our knowledge and understanding of phase 3 sounds, including lots of new digraphs, the children have taken these on board really well and we are impressed with how their writing is developing. In maths we have been looking at different ways we can make 5,6 and 7. We have been learning about whole part models and reading our number stories aloud to everyone. In our art lessons we looked at an artist called Kandinsky and have used his circle method to make an underwater scene. In our understanding the world lessons we found out some information about pirates and have looked at how to programme a beebot. We are looking forward to continuing our learning through the topic.
