Spring has arrived and we welcomed a very special visitor into Acorn Class. Elis and Eleri's mum brought in a lamb for us to meet. We were able to share all things we already knew about lambs and learn some new things too! Some of the children felt confident to touch the lamb and feel its fleece, some were less sure, but it was a very exciting event for everyone!
We have had a morning of painting. First we painted 'anything we wanted to', exploring how the paint worked and how to use the brushes. Then we painted our favourite dinosaurs. We think they look amazing!
We have been outside exploring our environment, using the Muddy feet resources. We have walked with bare feet, talked about our shadows, and then lay down and gazed at the sky and the clouds. We all felt very relaxed at the end of the session.
The children in Acorn Class learned about 'Poppy Day' and why we have a two minute silence. They used collage to make some beautiful pictures of poppies.
