Hi Acorn Class,

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend and managed to get a rest (children and parents!) Did you earn a Home Learning certificate last week? These can be found on Friday 29th Acorn Update blog, just incase you missed them.

Our Toy Topic focus this week is ‘Old Toys.’

Here are this week’s planned activities – Spring 1 Week 5 Home Learning

As always I am available via email (g.tyson@ellel-st-johns.lancs.sch.uk) if you need any help, advice or support. I would also love to see photos of your learning, activities and achievements!

Happy learning,

Mrs Tyson x

P.S. When I filmed myself reading ‘The Old Toy Room,’ the story did not show on the screen even though I was sharing it! If you would like to hear the story and imagine the pictures, here is the link – https://youtu.be/KWy8L4MC6Do
