Acorn News September 2020

We have had a great start to the school year and the nursery children (Acorn Class) have settled in well.  We are enjoying exploring the nursery environment and making new friends! 

Our topic this term is ‘All About Me.’ Throughout this term we will be talking about ourselves, our families and our friends. So far we have looked at our reflection in mirrors and have talked about what we could see. We have discussed what makes us the same and what makes us different. We have drawn some lovely self-portraits. We have begun talking about parts of our body and the children have loved drawing outlines of themselves on the playground. 

We have been joining in with lots of listening games and have had great fun with the musical instruments. We have begun to learn the sounds M A S D and T and have been practising writing them.

The children have loved exploring the messy play and have enjoyed pasta, playdoh and cornflour. 

We have started Forest School on a Monday morning and the children are learning to become independent by putting on their own waterproofs. They have had great fun exploring and swinging on the rope swing.
