Welcome to Acorn Class


Academic Year 2019-20

Nursery Home Learning Summer 1

This half term we will be looking at Nursery Rhymes as part of our topic called 'Is it Time for a Rhyme?'.

We will look at some of our familiar rhymes and follow up with activities based around the themes in the rhymes.

Each week I will put a range of ideas and videos onto Tapestry to give you some ideas of how to share learning with your children. 

Thank you for all of the pictures and vidoes you have shared with me, it is really wonderful to see how much they are learning with you at home.

Keep enjoying all of your nature walks, baking, crafts, stories and games at home and I will keep adding ideas for you all.

Best wishes

Mrs Redmond

Do look around the website for other resources, some you might find helpful are:

I have put some ideas into the below document to give you some ideas to support you in your home learning time. Please also look on our Tapestry pages for further ideas. 

Is it spring yet?

Are Eggs Alive?

This week we have begun to explore eggs. We looked inside an egg and made some pancakes. We looked at the recipe and learned how to sieve, measure the milk and mix it up until there were no lumps. Everyone tried the pancakes and most of the children came back for more!

Life Bus visit

Today Ellie visited us with the Life Bus.  We enjoyed thinking about how we look after our bodies with the help of Harold the giraffe and some fun activities.

Do Dragons Exist?

On our first day we had a surprise delivery.  The postman brought us a parcel with warning labels on it! We wondered what it could be and thought about what might fit in the box.
Inside the parcel was a dragon!  We were very surprised and wondered what the dragon would need.
We are now thinking about how to look after our dragon. This week we have made pictures to make him feel welcome. We have also been making up names for the dragon, we will pick one out for him at the end of the week.  The some of the children made him blankets and eggs to make him feel at home. 

Christmas Fun in Nursery

We have had great fun preparing for Christmas in Nursery.  We enjoyed making gifts and cards for our families. On our party day we played games and made Santa snacks with strawberries, grapes, banana and marshmallows. 

Nativity Play

Nursery performed 'Everyone Loves a Baby' with Reception class. The children sang and danced their hearts out and we are all really proud of their hard work.  We enjoyed exploring the story of the first Christmas through advent and dressing up helped us to think about the characters.
