People who help us

The Acorn children are looking at the different people in our society that helps us. 
This includes people from the Emergency services, to people in our everyday lives that help us. The children have enjoyed dressing up and role play activities around these job roles. 


The farm visits school

The farm came to school! The children took great delight in seeing the animals. Including Alpacas, sheep, ducks, chickens and goats. The Acorn children enjoyed petting the animals and getting to feed them. 
This was great as the children had just looked at these animals during Spring term 1.
