Our Spring Term Journey

The Children in Acorns have had a very busy and exciting term, We have been learning all about the different animals you find at the farm, we have been learning all the Easter story and making lots of fun Easter thing. The children have taken part in baking,  we have also been on many nature walks to see what we can find and even had a visit from the Easter bunny.

 

All About Animals.

The children in Acorns love animals, they love reading about them, learning about them and they even got to meet some baby ducks!

 

While learning all about Easter, Acorns had a special visitor come to visit!

THE EASTER BUNNY!

The children had the opportunity to get up close to the bunny, they watched him hop around the classroom and some of the children built up the courage to stroke him.

 

While on a nature walk one afternoon the children got asked if they wanted to see some baby ducks, the ducks were only a few weeks old, they were very small and fluffy, the children were very excited as they got to watch them splash around and some even were brave enough to gently stroke them.

 

This term the children have been also learning about the farm and the different animals you find on the farm, the children got to explore with animal masks, play lots of animal related games, including 'guess that noise' where a teacher would make the sound of a certain animal and the children had to shout out the correct animal.

 

 

Growing.

 

 Also this term the children in Acorns have been growing their own cress, they were able to plant the seeds into pots, add soil and everyday they got to water the cress and watch it grow. The children watched in amazement as cress would grew a bit bigger. Once the cress had fully grown each child if they wanted to was able to sample it, the cress was a big success.

 

The children in Acorns have also been reading and learning about Jack and the Beanstalk and Jaspers Bean, both books are related to growing. Jaspers Bean focuses on what is needed to help keep a beanstalk alive, the Teacher talked about how plants need water and sun to help them grow. In the small world area the children had their own Jack and the Beanstalk role play set up, it included a castle, a beanstalk, some magic beans, a giant, Jack and Daisy the cow. The children had lots of fun taking on a role in this area and playing with the different characters.

 

Out and About.

 

To get the children used to outdoors the staff in Acorns try to take the children on lots of walks around the school environment. The children hold hands with a partner and in between two/ three adults they set off. Some times the children will have snack on the school field and will explore the larger playgrounds.

Where do we go?

The Acorns children walk up to the allotment and get to look at the different vegetables growing there, the teachers point to the pictures of the vegetables and let the children guess what is growing.

Some of the older children and staff in the school earlier this term created some fairy houses in the school forest, Acorns went to discover these, the children were very excited as they came across each house and wanted to make their own.

The children also enjoy going up to the canal to watch and feed the ducks, they are reminded of the safety and how they should always stand behind the fence, each child got to throw lots of food in for the ducks and they even sang 'five little ducks' to them.

 

Easter.

 Before the children broke up for the Easter holidays we spent a couple of weeks doing lots of Easter related activities.

Although the children are young they still learnt about the Easter Story, by listening to stories and watching age appropriate videos.

The children of Acorns created their own Easter cards for loved ones, they coloured in different Easter pictures, created their own bonnets and baskets using lots of creative materials and even met the Easter bunny.
