Wow what an amazing start to our school year in Acorn class!

All the children have settled in really quickly, with the Year 1 children supporting the new Reception children to feel at home. Children have made new friends and are becoming one happy, united class.

Well done to all the parents too, for encouraging the children to come into school independently.

We are learning a lot about each other through sharing our memory bags and booklets. We will soon move on to talk about life a hundred years ago and talking to our grandparents and older relatives.
