Acorns (Nursery)

Welcome to Acorn Class
 
Acorns is our Nursery Class. The unit is overseen by our EYFS lead Miss Adams,  Mrs Henderson leads the unit on a daily basis with the assistance of Ms Hazell. The majority of children attend for the  three hour morning session, although some families  do access the 30 hours per week offered to working parents. Our curriculum is based on learning through play and the children thrive in this environment.
Exploring Pumpkins
We have had lots of fun exploring pumpkins. We have used our senses to describe what they look like, smell like and feel like. We put the pumpkins in the water trays so that we could get messy and use the scoops and funnels. We also had a pumpkin as our funky fingers activity. We used elastic bands to create shapes and patterns on the pumpkin, this strengthens our fine motor skills
Harvest Festival 
We worked so hard learning the words to our song 'Cauliflower's Fluffy' for the Harvest Festival. We then decided to make up some actions. We practiced it for weeks and then recorded it for the festival. We have been learning all about harvest time and we even painted our own fruit and vegetables to wear as headbands.
European Languages Day
We had a great day celebrating our annual European Languages Day. This year we watched videos through Lingotots and learnt all about the Netherlands. During the day, the children sampled a range of foods and learnt some key phrases. It was a great day of fun!

Outdoor Learning

We love our outdoor learning space. We regularly visit our forest area. We spend the day exploring the pond, outdoor classroom, daisy bridge and fire pit. We used our imaginations to search for fairies, pretend we were having a camp fire and roasting marshmallows around the fire. We hunted around for mini beasts and signs of Autumn. We always have a fantastic morning playing in the woods.
