Acorn class have had an exciting week exploring our topic 'How does that building stay up?' We began by building houses made of stick, straw and bricks.
Children created pictures by huffing and puffing the paint around the paper.
What's the time Mr Wolf?
We ended the week with a walk, observing the different types of buildings in our local area.
This week we have continued to explore the story of The Three Little Pigs. Acorn class have been busy creating their own versions of the traditional tale through mark making activities, constructing with large blocks and engaging in role-play.
Also this week children have been planting seeds and creating bubbles in the puddles.

Continuing our topic 'How does that building stay up?' we have focused on the story of The Three Little Pigs. Acorn class have enjoyed listening to the story and working together to build houses made of bricks, straw and sticks. We have also been think of what other materials and resources can be used to create a home strong enough to keep out The Big Bad Wolf.

We are off to a great start this term with our new topic 'How does that building stay up?' Acorn class have been busy measuring, drawing and constructing their designs by using a variety of resources available to them.
Acorn class were excited to explore the new role-play corner based on our new topic, where they were able to take on the role of construction workers by using the large foam bricks or creating houses for the small world people.
