This week we are learning…..

Phonics- This week, we will be  revisiting all the Phase 5 sounds we have learnt so far and learning about the split digraphs a_e, i_e, o_e, u_e and e_e.

Topic- We will be learning about bees and will be having a real life bee keeper coming in to tell us all about how to look after bees!

Look at what we have achieved last week…

This week, we have been learning all about bees! We were very lucky to have a visit from Mike, a local beekeeper who taught us all about honeybees. We got to try on a bee suit and build our own bee hive. We looked at beeswax and honey. In the afternoon, we had a go at a science experiment to learn about how bees pollinate the flowers.

In R.E this week, we have been learning about caring for our environment. The Acorns decided to help our school environment by going on a litter pick. We went around the field wearing gloves and picked up any litter we could found. It felt really good to have done a good deed for our school!

In Maths, we have been reading the story  ‘One is a snail, Ten is a crab’. We have been enjoying counting lots and lots of feet! We even had to count all the feet in our homes for home work. We had a go at some tricky maths work where we had to find different ways to make ten using the characters from the story.

We even made our own crabs using playdough and shells!

Last week was our Health and Fitness week at All Saints. We have been so busy taking part in sporting activities and learning about being healthy. We have made healthy pizzas and picnics. We took part in a dance class and football training. We played golf, basketball, yoga, speed stacking, circuits and badminton. We even did a fancy dress sponsored walk. It has been so much fun!

On Friday, we had our first All Saints sports day! We ran, hurdled, threw beanbags and jumped in sacks- all with smiles on our faces. Bravo Acorns!
