Welcome to Acorns class
Welcome to our class page. We are so delighted to welcome the children back after Easter break. Just a few reminders as we begin our final term: please remember that we have Seesaw as an online way of setting home learning and communicating with parents/carers, so please feel free to message me directly with any concerns or issues you wish to discuss.
On our class page, you can access the work for your child’s first day of isolation, should that be necessary, however, after the first day work will be assigned daily on Seesaw. Our P.E day is on a Friday morning. Children can come in to school wearing their P.E kit on this day. Reading books: please ensure children are bringing their books in every day. When the children have finished with their book I will change it for them.
I hope you enjoy looking at our class page as much as we enjoy sharing our learning.

Summer learning wider curriculum
This half term we have started all of our wider curriculum lessons. In History we are looking at Egypt and electricity in science. We have lots of creative and fun lessons planned for the children including creating our own electrical circuit in Science, as well as completing an archaeological dig in History.
Core curriculum learning
In our Oral communication lessons we look at ways in which we can develop our speaking and listening skills. This week we have been looking at the book The Egyptian Cinderella. We have used a lot of drama to re-tell the story of the original Cinderella. The children have created their own version of the Cinderella story and performed it to the rest of the class.
This week we have been learning meter, centimeters and millimeter, converting them as well as adding and subtracting them. We have used the beautiful weather and been outside measuring different items around the playground.
In Phonics we follow our Read Write INC learning. The children have been looking at their set 1,2 and 3 sounds becoming fluent with their sounds. During these lessons all children will take part in reading their book, completing grammar and spelling activities, as well as writing up their own paragraphs relating to the book we are reading.
This week we have been finishing off our learning in science which was looking at how plants grown and their life cycle. The children have really enjoyed this unit of learning: growing their own sunflowers within the classroom as well as in our
We have a lovely and welcoming learning environment, in which our children have lots of areas to help engage them and develop their learning. We have working walls, that we change every half-term, and we use them to display the teaching and learning.
