In Acorns we are learning through the topic of ‘Under the Sea’ and for the last few weeks through the topic of ‘Bears.’ We have been very creative; making turtles and painting colourful sea creature backgrounds. Our role play area is a seaside where the bears are having a picnic and we have loved selling ice cream in our ice cream shop! The children have written some brilliant descriptions of a day at the beach using their senses and then wrote postcards too.

In Maths we have been learning about sharing, halving and doubling as well as continuing to practice our number formation and how to write ‘teen’ numbers. We have created a bar chart of our favourite sea creatures and are looking forward to practising subtraction by removing items from the bear’s cave.

‘Respect’ is our value for this half term and the children have spent a lot of time thinking about how they show respect, as well as trying hard to evidence this value in their everyday lives. In RE, we have been learning about respecting our environment and how Jesus showed respect to his friends.

Nursery recently joined Reception for their first Forest School session. Great fun and learning was had by all, whilst exploring our beautiful outdoor area and woodland space.

We cannot wait for our upcoming class trip when we will be visiting Tolmers Activity Centre for a ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ and a day of outdoor activities.
