Look at what we have achieved last week…

In Maths this week, we have been learning about teen numbers. We have been working hard at recognising, ordering and counting teen numbers in lots of different ways!!

This week, our lion hunting has continued!!! We have been practising our story using actions. Mrs Marsden is going to film it so we can show our parents! We also had a go at drawing our own story maps this week. We chose to do it independently or with our friends and Mrs M was amazed by what we produced. Acorn class was full to the brim with learning behaviours creativity, co-operation and independence!

Mud was very popular in our outside area this week. We have discovered new areas to dig and we have explored roots, worms and mixing with mud! It was messy but very, very FUN!!!
