Weekly Blog page; This is our page to update you on what the children have been doing each week. As we do very little advance planning because we follow the children's interests, we try to keep parents informed through as many means as we can. You can always look on our whiteboard, which we update daily. Or there's our Daily photo board which is on the table near the main door (almost) every day. We always include photos of what we've been doing each day, and which areas of learning the children have experienced. At the bottom of each daily board page we try to include ideas for how you could extend or expand on children's learning at Acorns, at home. You can borrow your children's learning journals to take home whenever you wish (please ensure you sign it out). The learning journal explains all about your child's individual achievements and interests. Please add your comments to the learning journal - it belongs to you and your child. We are always extremely happy to have learning stories from home sent to us, to add to learning journals, so that we know what children are learning and enjoying when they are with you. 


Autumn term

 This term began with pretend baking outdoors and progressed to the idea of feeding birds. The children have enjoyed making bird feeders and then watching them from the door through binoculars. They have begun to make their own bird pictures and models now.










2nd half of the autumn term, week 1. This week has been all about Halloween and Bonfire Night. The children explored mixing colours using interesting implements such as twigs and pipe cleaners which created exciting effects. They brought in their fancy dress outfits and played Halloween games. We sang The Skeleton Dance song which led to us getting out our human x-rays. The children looked at them on the light box and were fascinated, so we made a whole body up with the x-rays and learnt the names of some of the bones and where they are on our bodies.
