Beegu and sports

This week, we have been looking at the story Beegu. We became comic book authors and learned all about speech bubbles. Some of us made some Beegu models and we painted pictures of Beegu. Later on in the week, we were invited to a ‘mini-Olympics’ at Hemel Hempstead leisure centre. The children were amazing and we came in 5th place out of 11 schools! Well done, Acorns!

Maple class cross stitching

 
Maple class has been learning how to cross stitch. This is some of our work. Ema said, “I felt excited because I had never cross stitched before.”

Nivany said, “I felt thrilled because I ended up with a wonderful design and it was stitched clearly.”

Hollie said, “ I felt frustrated because it was very difficult but I won’t give up.”

Science week

This week was all about space, science and experimenting in Acorns. We made our own rockets and not only did we get to work with the older children in Year 3 making plastic out of milk, we also got to make a rainbow on a plate! Later on in the week, we had a science treasure hunt and made an ‘exploding rocket’ with cola and mints. The children have thoroughly enjoyed all of the experiments this week!
