What are we learning about this term
Our Class Notice Board
Our topic this term is Muck, Mess and Mixtures.
We’re warning you; this is going to get messy! This half term, we’ll have a messy morning to investigate mixtures, from paint and toothpaste to jelly and shaving foam. We’ll enjoy the story of George’s Marvellous Medicine and write recipes, leaflets, lists and stories of our own. We’ll use our science skills to explore everyday materials, investigate soap products and understand why mixtures freeze and melt. We’ll learn how to measure using scales, measuring jugs and cylinders accurately. We’ll taste a wide variety of foods, learn about healthy eating and follow recipes to make some yummy treats. Our artwork will also rely on our mixing skills. We’ll use marbling inks to make unusual patterns, create food landscapes inspired by Carl Warner, paint with ice cubes, model clay into exciting shapes and use a variety of materials to make mixed media collages.
Maths, Literacy and Science
Our current focus in maths is greater than, less than.
Our current focus in literacy is developing language linked to practical experiences of exploring many mixtures. We will be reading and learning about the adventures in 'George's Marvellous Medicine'.
Our current focus in Science is exploring how substances change eg jelly in warm water, water added to crunchy cereal.
Our Class Photo Gallery
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.

Our Reception children graduate into Year One.
Parents and grandparents attended the Graduation Ceremony for the Reception Class of 2019. This really is one of the loveliest assemblies of the year. Well done to our brand new Year Ones!
Acorn Class Assembly
At the end of their exciting topic on Castles, Acorn Class shared their learning with the whole school, their parents and family friends in a Friday assembly.
They told us all sorts of interesting facts and shared their ideas for their own castles too. They imagined that they had different roles in castle life, from the cook to a knight and told us about their day. In Acorn classroom, they have built a castle they can sit inside for their role play area, complete with terrifying gargoyles! The children shared their gruesome gargoyle faces in assembly too. Horrible!
After making some sounds with their 'musical dragon' they shared some of the beautiful observation drawings of the flowers and plants that are growing on their class 'Spring' table. Thank you, Acorn Class.
Acorn Class have had great fun developing their topic on Castles. They have made 'Medieval Soup', and built a castle with gargoyles. For some pictures of their trip to Oxford Castle with Beech Class, please look at the Acorn and Beech Together Class Page.
Spring is coming to Acorn Class with shoots pushing through in the raised beds.
