P.E next week will take place on Tuesday and Friday morning. We will need trainers for these sessions as they will be outside (unless it is raining!).

We are learning this week….

We will be completing our baseline assessments and learning about the rules and routines of Acorn class.

Literacy- This week, we will be beginning Dough gym and practicing writing our names.

Maths- This week, we will be celebrating the number 4 and 5. We will look at finding different representations of these numbers.

Phonics- This week, we will begin learning Phase 2 sounds. We will introduce s,a,t,p using Jolly Phonics actions and thinking of words that begin with these sounds.

Topic- Our topic for this first term is ‘Marvellous Me’. This week we will be learning about growing and our bodies.

Look at what we have achieved last week…

In Maths, we have been celebrating the number 2. We thought of different ways to show the number two. We used dice, objects, fingers and numicon. We also drew 2 things too!


We enjoyed our first P.E session with Tom Bigg. We rotated around lots of different challenges. We did lots of super turn taking!

We had made it through our first 3 days at big school- WELL DONE ACORNS! We have been enjoying exploring the classroom and outside area. We discovered worms in the sand pit, planted herbs in our planter and played with the ride-ons.

We also had a go at our first finger gym challenge, made a dinosaur museum and a icecream playdough shop.

We had our first P.E lesson with the tennis coach Mr Hall. We had a go at rolling the ball to each other using the tennis rackets.

We have ended every day with a thumbs up – well done Acorns! Mrs Marsden is very proud of you!
