This week, we have been learning....

EAD - Role Play

We have a new coffee shop role play  in our classroom for the new term. We were really excited to discover it when we came into the classroom. We talked about who had visited a coffee shop before and what happens in them. We talked about the jobs that people have that work there. We learnt about how to write a list when we make a order. The Acorns then explored and played in the coffee shop during busy time. 

R.E - Epiphany

We were excited to visit the church again on Friday for the Epiphany collective worship. We got to sit in the pews and enjoyed looking around. We learnt about Epiphany and the story of the 3 wise men. We then enjoyed singing some songs and saying prayers.
