Little Acorns have been learning about Traditional Tales from around the world. Last week we read “The Gingerbread Man” story and we made Gingerbread Men using collage materials. Then on Friday we baked Gingerbread Men and luckily none of them ran away!
Warning: spoiler alert!
Our Dress Rehearsal went really well and the children looked fantastic in their costumes. Well done Little Acorns and Big Acorns!
Last week Little Acorns read the story “A Little Bit of Winter” and we enjoyed making hedgehogs from the story using salt dough and cocktail sticks. We also learnt about icebergs and we made our own icebergs with balloons filled with water and put in the freezer overnight. We made snow dough using corn flour, vegetable oil and glitter, and we practised our cutting skills to make paper snowflakes. What a fun week!
Little Acorns have been reading “Stickman” this week. We made up new adventures for Stickman and drew story maps for our new story. Then we went on the field to collect lots of sticks of different shapes and sizes. We used our sticks to make Stickman and his Stick Lady Love.
Little Pudsey Bears for Children in Need Day 2019!
Little Acorns are really enjoying having their reading buddies from Mighty Oaks over to read them stories.
We made a delicious Gruffalo crumble this week in Little Acorns. We put in apples for the poisonous wart, plums for the purple prickles, blackberries for the black tongue and mandarins for the orange eyes. It was really yummy!
There were some spooky things happening in Little Acorns last week. We read “Room on the broom” and wrote magic spells like the one in the story. We also carved a pumpkin for our Halloween role-play area and, on Friday, we dressed up in Halloween costumes for our disco.
On Friday, Little Acorns made healthy smoothies. We made a list of ingredients together and discussed which ingredients would be healthy to put in our smoothie. We used strawberries, raspberries, mangoes, blueberries, apples, bananas and orange juice. We thought the smoothies tasted yummy and Mr Green even came across to taste it!
