Please note that planning is subject to change depending on the children and their interests. Please visit this page regularly to access letters and to see what we have been learning.


We have been learning 'The Gingerbread Man' story using actions and voices for different characters.

We have been learning about the Gingerbread Man and have been busy making collages and painting pictures of our favourite characters.

We built an assault course and practised our climbing, balancing, jumping, hopping and crawling.

We have made a family member in the style of Giuseppe Arcimboldo and have thought about why we love them...

We have decided upon our class rules and have promised to follow them by placing our photos on the Class Charter bus.

Exploring mathematical concepts in Acorn Class...

We have spent the whole week learning and playing together, whilst enjoying the glorious sunshine. Aren't we lucky!

Look at our self portraits...

What confident, resilient children we have in Acorn Class. Our first day was full of happy faces, fun and laughter.
