Autumn 2023

A very warm welcome to Acorn Class and to Upton Noble Primary School. Our theme for this term is: 'Once Upon a  Time' and the 'Topic Web' below should give you an idea of what is is planned, although this can change depending on the children and their interests. Please visit this page regularly to keep up to date with our learning. Many thanks.



Merry Christmas everyone!

Weren't we the most incredible dancing shepherds and sheep! I can't stop smiling...
