Welcome to a brand-new term in Acorns class. This term our children will be going “Down by the Farm” where the children will be learning all about farm life. They will find out about how the land is used in the local area by taking a walk around Collingtree Village. They will be finding out about how farming has changed over time and comparing similarities and differences. Acorns class will also be making some delicious food during the term which they will get to taste. Click on the links below to find out about learning in this term and the whole year.
