Visit from a Paramedic - Today, Acorns enjoyed a visit from Rachel (Freddie's mum) who is a paramedic. She talked to the children about her job as a paramedic, showed the children all of her emergency kit and talked with them about how to contact help in an emergency. She brought her ambulance response car and the children enjoyed looking at all the medical kit inside and were treated to listening to the emergency siren and lights.

World Book Day - Today, we wore our pyjamas and brought our favourite bedtime story to school. We enjoyed exploring different stories and designed our own 'booked potatoes'.

Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) : Today Acorns have enjoyed making their own pancakes, tasting different pancake toppings, designing a paper plate pancake with their favourite topping and having pancake races.

People Who Help Us: Today we had a visit from a Police Sergeant who talked to us about his job and showed us some of the tools and equipment that he uses in his role. We also had a tour of his police van, saw the lights flashing and heard the siren. Children had the opportunity to sit in the cell in the back of the van.

NSPCC Number Day - Today Acorn's dressed up in numbered clothes and we completed many number challenges in class. We enjoyed a cake sale and a book sale all to raise money for NSPCC.

Today, Mrs Williams (Lydia's Mum) visited us to talk about her work as a dietician. We learnt about eating a healthy rainbow fruit diet and then we made rainbow fruit skewers.

We brought in our teddies for a sleepover to raise money for CHAT (Churches Houses Action Team) and help homeless people in our locality.

Today was an exciting day for Big Acorns. This afternoon we were in charge of the school duck eggs in an incubator and the one duckling that has hatched already called Donald. He was a very welcome and cute guest albeit a little noisy! We observed the eggs and noticed some cracks but unfortunately no more hatched whilst we were looking after them. We also had our class reward for excellent whole class behaviour. Just before the Easter holiday Big Acorn's managed to fill the pom pom behaviour jar and they voted on what treat they would like choosing a film and some popcorn. Well done big Acorn's and keep it up!

Big Acorns had a visit from Father Paul to learn about the role of the Parish Priest.
