Welcome to Acorn!
When we returned to school after our Easter break we discovered that some eggs had been delivered by our old friend Dino the dinosaur. He asked us to find out which animals lay eggs. He also wanted us to think about what might be inside the eggs in our classroom. We came up with lots of ideas such as spiders, snakes, chicks, turtles and ducks. After only two days the eggs had started to hatch open and we were very excited to discover that there were little chicks inside. They are now in the brooder box in our classroom.
“The eggs had little chicks in because they were kept warm," Malachi.
“Look, there’s another chick pipping!” Poppy.
This half term we will be covering our Dinosaur theme and our Take One Author, Ian Why.
In foundation stage we found a huge egg in our new outdoor classroom. We bought it inside to keep it warm. We noticed each morning when we came to school that it was cracking open a little more each day and there appeared to be a small dinosaur inside. Last Wednesday, we found the egg in two parts and empty! Mr Oak sent us some photos taken from CCTV footage of our missing dinosaur travelling around our school. We used the photos, like a map, to follow the dinosaurs trail but have yet to find him. We have made lots of posters to let everyone know about our missing dinosaur in the hope that someone finds him soon.

We have had lots of fun during our first few weeks at school learning all the routines, exploring all the areas within our classrooms and making lots of new friends.
