Acorn - Reception

Autumn 2021

A very warm welcome to Acorn Class and to Upton Noble Primary School. Our theme for this term is: 'Story, Rhyme and Pantomime' 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.



Acorn Class have been exploring our local church and have been asking lots of questions about what they saw.

Today we made and ate bread. We learnt about 'proving' and 'kneading' and the importance of yeast. We sequenced the recipe and talked about how delicious and light the bread tasted.

We have had a busy week learning about repeating patterns.

We have made masks and acted out the story of Rosie's Walk in groups.

Just in case you missed our fantastic Harvest song yesterday...

Thanks to Zara's mummy for teaching us all about her dairy farm. The maize plant was enormous and the silage smelt very strong!

We welcomed Katie, a dental nurse today, who taught us how to brush our teeth and why we need to do this. We then practised brushing. The classroom smelt very minty!

We welcomed a 'brahma' and two 'silkie' chickens into Acorn Class today as part of our learning on Rosie's Walk. We got to stroke them, feed them and listen to them as they chatted away. We learned that silkies have blue ears and 5 toes and brahmas are enormous and have 4 toes.

We have been painting our families whilst thinking about why we love them so much. We thought carefully about colour, position and background. Aren't they just incredible!

We made our Class Charter and thought about rights and responsibilities in Acorn Class. We put our photos on the Class Charter bus and promised to follow the rules for a safe and happy classroom.

We have been painting self portraits on paper and ceramic tiles thinking carefully about mixing paint. We used mirrors to look at our features first.

We have had a fabulous first day exploring both the indoor and outdoor classrooms, whilst learning what it means to be in Acorn Class.
