Look at what we have achieved last week…..

We had some new class members this week!!! Acorn class now have 2 new pets- Giant African Land Snails called Lionel and Turbo! They are not very giant yet but we have spent the week learning about how to care for them. They are already very popular and lots of questions and interest has been seen this week.

In Maths, we have been learning about 2D shapes and using mathematical terms to describe them. We made shape faces using different shapes and then had to describe them to another person using our new mathematical language. We also enjoyed our shape finger gym challenge to make shapes using the geoboards and started to make shapes in other areas of the classroom too!

On Friday, Elder class came to read to us- it was really nice to meet them all and we enjoyed a bit of quiet story time at the end of the day.

This week we have been continuing to practise our new routines and explore our learning environment. We have been practising our sharing and also our tidying!

On Tuesday we made our own mini-mes for a classroom display. We had to describe ourselves to each other and looked at our hair colour and eye colour in the mirror.

We call our child initiated play time ‘busy time’. Here is us getting busy!!


Well done Acorns- we had a brilliant first day at big school!! We have been learning about our class routines and exploring our new learning environment. Here is a few pictures of what we got up to…

Lining up for lunch!
Learning how to line up after playtime!

We also had our first P.E lesson. We practised getting changed into our P.E kits and then we went to the hall for some games!

We have been enjoying our afternoon snack- Mrs Marsden says this is the most peaceful time of the day!
