Little Acorns

In Little Acorns we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. The children have time in their day to play together to explore their own ideas. Please look below to find out more about the exciting things we have been learning.
Please contact your child's class teacher if you have any queries about the school curriculum.

We went on a trip to Blue Reef Aquarium to learn about ocean creatures and their habitat. We had a workshop about sharks and rays and watched them being fed. Afterwards, we walked along the promenade, played games on the beach and enjoyed a delicious ice cream!

Continuing our learning about animals and their habitats, we went on a minibeast hunt on the rec. We found woodlice, spiders, butterflies, slugs and flies. We also have been keen to explore the Beebots and have been learning how to program them to move in different directions.

This half term we've been learning about habitats. We learnt about animals that live on the farm, their products and what their babies are called. We visited Elm Grove Farm to learn more about lambs. We fed them their milk and even gave some a cuddle!

This half term we've been learning about growing and changing. We learnt the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and planted our own 'magic' beans. Over the half term we enjoyed watching them grow and change as we learnt about the lifecycle of a flowering plant. During our work on the story 'The Tiny Seed' by Eric Carle, we used our observation skills to make sketch drawings of flowers. In our dance lessons, we pretended to be tiny seeds growing into flowering plants. We thought about how we have grown and changed since we were babies and through visits by a doctor, dental nurse, vicar and structural engineer, we began to think about what we might like to be when we are older. We learnt about signs of Spring and 'New Life' in RE, helped by the addition of caterpillars and chicks into our classroom this half term.

We enjoyed learning to use the skateboard and scooter safely in our PE this week.

This week we've been learning about celebration. We celebrated Barney Bear's birthday with presents, cake and a bouncy castle. Later in the week we celebrated at our school Harvest Service in church. We made our own plates of vegetables to represent all the good things given at Harvest time.

This week we've started learning letter sounds and exploring different vegetables that are harvested at this time of year.
