We have had yet another beautifully mild week. We are starting off with coats, wet weathers and wellies and ending up in short sleeves and trainers. Miss Vincent made a spider web on a tree. We had to find spiders with numbers on to peg on to the web. Some of us had to think really hard about the numbers and we had to work out how to squeeze the pegs so that they opened. Great finger gym! The on and off windy and rainy weather has blown down many sticks out of the trees.
On Monday we welcomed Miss Jazmin Scovell to our team. Jazmin studied her Level 2 in childcare at Crawley College and has now joined us full time at The Acorns. She will start her level 3 training soon. The children took part in an activity to finger paint some numbers, most of the children chose the number that corresponded to their own age. “I am 3 so this is my paper.” “Are you three or are you four?” “I just turned 4 on my last birthday.” We sorted items into number group
One more week left to go before half term! We have been exploring up the mountain and in the woods. The landscape is slowly changing from green into soft browns, yellows and bright oranges. It has also been feeling so mild. We start off with coats and then have to take them off. On Tuesday we took hoops with us on a walk and made pictures within the frames. The hoops helped us to concentrate our ideas. Some of us just wanted to play with the hoops! The spiders have also ma
Another wonderful week has flown by. Can you believe that it is almost half term? The weather has been amazing and we have enjoyed being outside in the garden each day, playing and exploring - searching for bugs and chatting about the signs of Autumn. The leaves are falling fast and are beginning to dry up. We watched them swirling around on the path as the wind blew. We blew bubbles and chased them around the garden, trying to pop them with our fingers before they floated h
What beautiful weather we have had this week! We went to St Martin's Church on Tuesday to see the flower and harvest festival displays. They were amazing. We were very excited to see the display that we had made at Acorns. Mother Nicole and Gary made us feel very welcome. We sang All Things Bright and Beautiful which was the theme of the display and another song that we had been practising called Autumn Leaves. We pretended to be acorns growing into trees and blowing in th
A brand new month with lots of exciting things planned! We started the week with a very special visitor. Mrs Davies came to see us. She has flown all the way back from Australia to spend a week with her family and couldn’t possibly visit the UK without popping in to see us at The Acorns. It was so lovely to see her and it was a big surprise for both the children and their parents. We went for a lovely walk to a house in the village that we call ‘The Conker house.’ We visit th
