Autumn 2

It's beginning to look like Christmas! The children have enjoyed taking part in the Christmas activities during exploring time. They have been working hard to develop their mark-making skills by writing letters to Father Christmas and developing their scissor control by cutting out pictures to create a Christmas list. 






 This week we have also been making Christmas trees using 2D shapes, we have explored and spoken about key vocabulary such as: sides, corners, straight, round.












Week 6

3rd-7th December 


This week we have developed and continued our topic 'Can I have a dog?', the children were very excited to meet Kimba and his owner Nicola, who is visually impaired. Nicola spoke to the children and explained that Kimba is a special dog that helps her carry out her daily routines. Kimba is able to guide Nicola to the local shops by voice command, although she often finds that Kimba leads her into McDonalds for a tasty treat! Kimba was very calm and enjoyed meeting Acorn class and the children were able to have a cuddle with kimba at the end of the session.
