Making Smoothies

Little Acorns have been learning about healthy eating this week and on Thursday Mr Green came over with his packed lunch. The children were very unhappy that Mr Green had lots of sugary food in his lunchbox and so they decided to make him a healthy smoothie. They chose to put in apples, grapes, cherries, bananas and orange juice. It was yummy and Mr Green really enjoyed it too!

Our senses

Little Acorns have been learning about our senses this week. We have been using our sense of taste to try different fruit and we have used our sense of smell to guess different food in pots. We also tried an obstacle course blindfolded, with our friends helping to guide us over the benches, around the cones and through the tunnels. 

Marvellous Me!

 

The Little Acorns topic for this term is “Marvellous Me” and we have been getting to know each other over the last couple of weeks. We have talked about what we look like, what we are good at and what our favourite things are. We made some fantastic self- portraits and we found out how we are similar or different from our friends.

Forest School

Little Acorns and Year 1 children were recently joined in the forest by someone special…Stickman! After being inspired by the story, the children decided to make their own version of Stickman using resources from the forest. Some of the children even took their Stickman home. As well as this, the children continued to have fun exploring the scramble net, adding to their dens from the previous week and creating mud sculptures (hedgehogs, dinosaurs, cows, pigs and goats).There was also lots of concentration, persevering and proud peacock moments with the fire lighting session, while lots of children perfected their sparks!

Fun in the Forest

Little Acorns and Year 1 children have been continuing their forest school learning and  the children’s focus shifted from mud to den building and fire lighting. The children discovered some newly created dens in the forest and took it upon themselves to enhance and develop them as well as create their own or turn them into their very own spaceship! Also, with a keen interest in lighting the fire, a small group of children were intrigued by John’s demonstration of how to start a fire without matches, and two had quite the knack and were able to light a piece of cotton wool on fire. Forest school was finished off with a special treat of toasting marshmallows and using the talking stick to share their best bits. Another amazing week and still more to come.

Forest School

Little Acorns have been heading down to the forest with Big Acorns for the first time this term and it is safe to say they have been having a fantastic time.  Nearly everyone was in need of a wash by the time they returned from their first visit, including the staff! The first session taught the children the forest boundaries and rules and allowed them time to explore their new classroom environment. There was a lot of fun had in the bog pits as well as children enjoying swinging in the hammock or clambering through the suspended scrambled net. The children loved eating around the camp fire and learnt important lessons about cleaning up rubbish and looking after the environment for the animals who lived there. We are all looking forward to seeing what our next sessions bring!
