What a busy week the Acorns have had!

On Monday, the Acorn Preschool children enjoyed a visit from Jean with Alice and Phoenix, her Guide dogs. The children loved to hear how Alice uses her eyes to help Jean get about as she is blind. The children were able to describe what is the same and what is different in the grown dogs compared to the puppies who visited the previous week.

On Tuesday, the children were fantastic whilst having their school group photos and their graduation photos. You will love seeing how they turned out!

The focus for this week has continued to be around farm animals – with the children drawing posters for missing farm animals, writing their own version of Dear Zoo – but with Dear Farm and also making spring chickens. The children have built farm enclosures with the wooden blocks and have loved to play with the small world farm animals.

As the chicks have grown so much, this week they have been moved into the rabbit hutch. The children have loved seeing how they have grown, how their feathers are changing and watching the new behaviours that they can see – including preening their feathers, stretching their legs and wings, pecking and scratching at the ground and also jumping to peck at each other.

Our story of the week ‘Chicken Licken’ helped us with our rhyming words –and all the children have learnt how to retell this story using the story map to help them. See if they can tell you the story at home.


The Acorns have been working very hard on writing their names this term, and are doing so well. We can tell they have been doing lots of practice at home, so thank you for all your support.

Stars of the day this week were Joey, Ruby, Callum and Faith – well done to you all.
