Autumn 1

Week 6

This week Acorn class have been learning all about autumn. We started the week with an autumn walk, collecting leaves, sticks and other autumn resources to incorporate into our learning.

Week 5

8th-12th October


How are you feeling? This is the question we have been exploring this week. Acorn class have engaged in many activities that have supported and developed their knowledge of what feelings are and how we express them. 


As part of our topic, this week the children have been introduced to two of our Yoimoji's.


    Fizz is a kind Yoimoji and he                 Chomp is a patient Yoimoji who  

          likes helping people.                                 can wait his turn.



We have also introduced "Princess, Dragon and Helicopter stories" into our week. The children tell an adult a story and the adult scribes this for them. The story is then read by an adult and the children work together to act out the narrative to the class. These will be continued all year and the children will eventually be able to write their own stories.
