Term 3, week 1
Welcome back and happy new year! I hope you had a restful break, I think we are all hoping for a more positive year ahead. We've certainly started the year in great way, with such a busy, engaging and fun week one. The children are so happy to be back and really enthusiastic about all things Acorns!
Inside we have enjoyed junk modelling, exploring colour mixing during mono-printing sessions and explored a huge slab of clay, with presented the children with lots of opportunities to experiment using clay in a different way to usual. We have run small story telling groups, encouraging the children to use their knowledge of stories and their imaginations to follow on a group story.
During our Forest School sessions the children have been making zip wires between the trees, climbing, role-playing and searching the garden for spring bulbs. Lots of children have been using the lose parts resources to construct all kinds of things, learning about balance, angles and how to build solid structures to walk on through trial and error.
Such a great start to the year. Next week we will be baking fruit crumble, introducing star of the day and show and tell, continuing junk modelling (we need your recycling please!) and clay exploration. We'll be introducing a new colour to mix and lots more!
Happy weekend everyone xx
