How to Help Your Children


We are learning about the Great Fire of London! This week we learnt about what happened during the event and sequenced pictures into chronological order.


Our current story in English is ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. We had lots of fun thinking of different speech that the characters might be saying in each picture.

R.E. (Hinduism)

We learnt that Hindu people use all 5 senses when they worship and thought about why this is important. We looked at different objects to work out which senses we use for different things.

Mental Health Week

Blackacre learnt about having healthy minds, about different feelings and about ways we can feel better. We spoke about things we can do to help us if we feel sad. The children each drew a picture of something that makes them happy and we put it into our ‘jar of positivity’. We shared all of our happy pictures in circle time. We then went on a ‘well-being walk’ through our Forest school and listened to different sounds outside. 🍁 🐦 

Transient Art

This morning we learnt about transient art (using resources that can be moved around to make different pictures). We enjoyed going outside to find sticks, stones, leaves and flowers to make pictures of faces, houses etc.
