On the run up to Mother's Day, the children shared with us what they loved about their Mummy's.

Today we have been playing with clay! The children have been creating some rainbow fish.

Brrrr! It’s been a cold day at school today. To warm us up we’ve all had a cup of hot chocolate. Yum yum!

All the bulbs we have planted are starting to peak out of the soil.

We shall have a fishy, on a little dishy! 

Acorn children have been reading The Rainbow Fish in class this week. We had some little visitors of a fishy variety, mackerel, sardines and a smoked herring. The children explored the feel and the smell of the fish, afterwards Acorns had a taste as well. Who knew mackerel and smoked herring on buttered bread would be such a hit? To top off our week the children made a collage of the rainbow fish. 

Run! Run! as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!

The Gingerbread Man story has been a big hit in Acorn class this week! We have baked biscuits and played with ginger scented play-dough. We have even created our very own lifesize collaged Gingerbread man. The children have used props and a sensory board where we have crushed and rolled ginger biscuits to re-tell the story.

I'm forever blowing bubbles.

We've been blowing bubbles to make art today. Our children really enjoyed it.

Christmas has arrived in Early Years today! We opened our first door on our advent calendar and all the children we're in full festive spirit, Ho, Ho, Ho!

It's Santa!

This week in Acorn we've had some furry visitors! Zig and Zag the school Guinea pigs have been spoiled with cuddles and a pampering day. 

Who knew bathing guinea pigs would be so much fun!

We have been exploring using our senses.
