Year 3- Homophones-3.3.21
Year 3 have been exploring homophones today. Our main focus was understanding which ‘to’, ‘two’, ‘too’ and ‘there’, ‘they’re’, ‘their’ to use. We even recapped some of the previous homophones we have looked at. We marched, clapped and tapped our heads to spell the correct homophone for the sentence. We had a lot of fun doing this and we can’t wait to learn more about homophones.
Year 2 have been investigating how the level of water in a glass bottle or jar affects the sound made when either tapping the glass with a pencil, blowing across the top of the bottle or running a wet finger around the rim.
They have been making predictions about how they think the water will effect the sound and finding out how full the bottle or jar must be to make a high-pitched sound or a low-pitched sound.
Here are some photographs of some of their experiments as well as their findings.
Year 5 have returned after half term eager to continue their amazing learning.
This week, we are working on instructional writing. We are using the film “How To Train Your Dragon” to help us practise writing instructions. Once we have gathered all the knowledge and skills we require, we will be moving on to write instructions for making vegetable soup. This fits nicely with our new topic, Sow, Grow and Farm.
Below are some examples of our work so far:
Year 3 have been learning about what makes up the earth and the different layers.
Can you spot the different layers in these photos?
Look how many different ways we found to show the same thing (there were even more ways shown over zoom). Aren’t we a creative bunch!
What a busy start to the half term we have had!
We made a big bang (literally) at the start of the week! We pretended that we were children in World War II. We move the classroom around to make an improvised bomb shelter and experienced what it was like to be involved in an air raid.
Some of us felt excited, scared or even claustrophobic. Later on, we watched a video about what it was like for people in the actual war. The video made us realise how serious it was – we heard from an old man who’s house had been bombed – in the raid his mother had died.
We have also been learning about the Windrush generation in our literacy – trying to learn what it might have felt like to move away from your friends and family at such short notice.
In mathematics, we have been learning about measures and converting. We had a really interesting conversation about why road signs still have miles on them!
Here are some bits of our SOLE work – we hope you enjoy them.
Another great week in Foundation! We started a new topic, dangerous dinosaurs. The children have loved learning about prehistoric creatures and creating dinosaur movements to music outside. We have created our own dinosaurs and dinosaur names!
The children have been discussing empathy this week in wellbeing Wednesday. We have focused on self empathy. The children practised breathing exercises to feel calm and relaxed. They also celebrated all the ways they excel.
In maths this week, we have focused on ‘cheeky number 9’. We have loved learning about number 9 and looking at square numbers. The children enjoyed exploring the composition of 9 with numicon.
In literacy the children have shown incredible determination to make progress. We have been thinking about winter. We have thought about all the things we might smell,feel,touch and taste in winter. We made our own snowflakes and wrote some fantastic adjectives to describe them.
Foundation have been working so hard this week, displaying their amazing growth mindsets! They have been using their ‘metacognition minds’ to justify and reason. Well done Foundation for another fantastic week! 🙂
We have been developing our oracy skills by trying a daily ‘odd one out’ challenge. We collaborate and share ideas using key language such as ‘I agree…’ and ‘I believe…’ Here is an example of an odd one out challenge:
We have been so excited to start our new Cornerstones topic ‘Dangerous Dinosaurs’! We have learnt lots of interesting facts. We now know that the T-Rex had teeth that were bigger than bananas! We have been making dinosaur footprints, creating dinosaur silhouettes and writing dinosaur speech bubbles! We also created our own dinosaurs!
In literacy, we have been learning all about winter. We even made some bird food ‘cakes’ to make sure the birds are keeping warm. We also looked at some pictures of snowflakes and made a list of all of the adjectives we could think of. We then up-levelled our adjectives to make them even better with shades of meaning! We used some fantastic adjectives such as ‘twinkly’ and ‘transparent’.
In maths, we have been learning about the number 9. We have been looking at how it is a square number and can be made from 3 lots of 3. We have used lots of different resources and approaches such as numicon, part-whole models and dominoes to help us learn all about the composition of number 9. We have been using the metacognition cycle and have been planning, monitoring and evaluating our learning!
We have been challenging ourselves in phonics as we have been learning all about adjacent consonants and vowels. We added the word ‘adjacent’ to our vocabulary as we now know that it means ‘next to’. Throughout the week, we have been looking at different adjacent consonant or ‘consonant blend’ words and have worked at putting them into context by using them in sentences!
We have also been engaging in lots of additional activities to support our wellbeing such as going for beach walks, learning about Chinese New Year and water play!
Here comes the Year 2 and the marching band. Left, right, left, right. Step in time to the beat: 1, 2, 3, 4; let’s make sounds, high and low. That sound is loud. That one’s quiet. What can you hear? There are sounds all around. What’s making each one? These are all questions that Year 2 have been finding out this week as part of their beat, band, boogie learning journey.
Here are a collection of photos showing the kitchen bands they have created and different sounds they have been able to create whilst out and about!
This week, Year 6 have started their new topic – A Child’s War – learning all about WW2. The hook to the topic was to try and experience what it was like to be in an air raid. The children at home found a space where they could create a mock bomb shelter, for example, by putting a blanket over the top of a table and some cushions underneath. To add to the experience, they hid in the air raid shelter whilst the air raid siren was sounding. Here are some pictures of their experiences, along with reflections about how the experience made them feel.
We have had a wonderful day in Year One today. The day started with a very important invitation to a Queen’s tea party. Luckily, we were all in our smart clothes and dressed for the occasion.
We then spent the morning doing a ‘posh’ Phonics lesson, making sure we pronounced every sound correctly and clearly, following a set of instructions to make jam sandwiches and making decorations for the tea party.
Just before the tea party in the afternoon, we spent our Wellbeing Wednesday time making placemats. We then practised balancing books on our heads to ensure correct posture and learnt how to curtsy and bow. The tea party was wonderful with the children showing beautiful manners. They made sure their napkins were on their laps and remembered their pleases and thank yous. We listened to classical music and the children even had the chance to dance. We have heard that the children learning remotely from home also had the most wonderful time as well.

Little Acorns Nursery and Pre-school has been open for 1 year today so we thought we would celebrate and have a party! We all enjoyed party food and party games wearing our party clothes!
As part of our ‘Beat Band Boogie’ topic, today we enjoyed making drums and listening to all the sounds we could make! We used yoghurt pots, balloons, masking tape and coloured pens. The balloons were challenging to put over the top of the yoghurt pots but we were very resilient and worked collaboratively to help each other succeed. After we made them, we carefully decorated them to make them our own.
This afternoon, year 3 began their new topic of Rocks, Relics and Rumbles. We became geologists as we studied a range of rocks to find out if they were metamorphic, sedimentary or igneous. We first used our excellent observations skills on the rock’s appearance, then we used wire to investigate if the rock was hard or soft. Finally, we used pipettes to drop water to test if the rock was permeable or impermeable. All of these tests led us to discovery the rock type. We had a lot of fun and we’re excited to learn more about our topic.
Foundation have been very busy this week! We have been learning all about 2D and 3D shapes in our maths learning. We went on a shape hunt, created some shape pictures and even challenged ourselves to create repeating patterns. In phonics, we have been practising our tricky words. We extended ourselves using our oracy skills to put the tricky words into context! In literacy, we have been learning about the North and South Poles! We made some beautiful pictures and labelled them. We have also been creating our own winter themed songs and used our metacognition minds to challenge ourselves in all areas of our learning. Some children had a go at redrafting their work to make it even better! We have really enjoyed our Cornerstones topic “Starry Night” and this week, we completed some interesting ice experiments! We even wrote our hypothesis (vocabulary word)! Well done Foundation for your amazing enthusiasm, eagerness and positive attitude towards your learning. You are superstars and we are so proud of you!
We watched a video to celebrate and reflect on all of our brilliant learning. Here is a short snippet:
A huge thank you to all of the parents and carers of Ash and Beech for your continued support! Have a lovely half term! 🙂
Have a look at our incredible learning below:
Year 2 have spent the week planning, designing and creating their own Castles, Palaces and Games to complete our Magnificent Monarchs learning journey. They were given free reign and I have to say their imagination and creativity has been inspiring.
Please have a look below at some of their creations.
Castles and Palaces:
Well done year 2 for everything you have achieved this half term, we are all really proud of you!!!
Have a lovely half term and we’ll see you in a week.
We have been making Valentines day biscuits at Little Acorns! The children followed a simple recipe and carefully weighed out the ingredients. We talked about how the mixture was changing as we added the different ingredients. The dough was rolled out and cut into heart shapes. Once baked in the oven, the children decorated their heart shaped biscuit with pink icing. Don’t they look delicious!
Today we celebrated Chinese New Year in Little Acorns. The children experimented with chopsticks and noodles, designed their own chinese hand held fans and tasted prawn crackers at snack time.
What a fun packed week we have had in Foundation! The children have been looking at why snow melts, and how we get snowy weather. We made sure to watch out for any snow outside too. We looked at different things we might do in the snow and made some freeze frames.
We all really enjoyed learning Pilates. The children loved taking on the different challenges and learning all about their abdominal muscles.
In maths this week, we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes. The children have been sorting shapes based on the number of sides they have. We discovered that we are all magic and can turn 2D shapes into 3D shapes- wow Foundation!
Well done on such a super star week Foundation. You never cease to amaze me!
We had a fantastic time learning some Pilates moves today as part of a Pilates Zoom session. We were very excited about it. We had to show a huge amount of resilience to hold some of the moves, especially the plank. A couple of the children managed to stay in the plank position for a minute and a half!
We all had a brilliant online Pilates session this afternoon with an instructor from the Dartmoor Schools Sport Partnership. The session had a focus on keeping physically active and on the children’s mental well-being.
This week we have been making icy art pictures with frozen paint! The children used the frozen paint sticks to create their own colourful art pieces which are proudly displayed on the walls in Little Acorns.
Year Three continue to blow us away with their ever creative ways of presenting their learning about the prehistoric times. Can you spot the diary entry or the drawing of the chief? What do you think the jewellery has been made form ?
Year 3 have become news reporters this week as we interviewed historians about wealth and power in the Bronze Age. We had a few technical difficulties, but after showing resilience we have produced a piece of work we are proud of. We hope you enjoy our news reports!

Some of our fabulous Year Three children have missed having the working wall to refer back to their learning. They’ve realised just how often they use it and how it supports them with their learning. As such, they have been ever so resourceful and created their own with key information on.
Here is the personal PE challenge for Week 4. This week’s challenge is to have a go at some frog jumps within a relay course. Have a look at the video to see what the challenge entails:
We made our own snow! The children loved mixing and moulding the ‘snow’ into various models. Among the creations were ‘snow dogs’ ‘foxes’ ‘snowmen’ and ‘volcanoes!’
We also made bird feeders from lard and seeds. We hope to be able to observe various wildlife enjoying a yummy snack!
For Mental health week we read stories about different feelings, and we talked about our emotions. The children made mood monster puppets and designed their own emotions masks based on their feelings inside.
This week we have been honouring and recognising the inspirational Captain Sir Thomas Moore. The children coloured in their own Union Jack flags which are proudly on display in our windows at Little Acorns.
This week, Year 6 have been fantastic as always!
As part of children’s mental health week, we discussed the ’10 a day’, thinking about which ones we are doing really well at home and maybe some that we need to think a bit more about. In maths, we have been focusing on percentages, and towards the end of the week, have looked at how we convert between fractions, decimals and percentages. Our literacy has continued to work towards our final piece of writing: a narrative piece based on the Golden Compass. Year 6 have thought carefully about their vocabulary choices and how we can develop this for our final scene.
Finally, in SOLE, we have continued our ‘Darwin’s Delights’ topic. This week, we have learnt how to sketch shells in detail, researched Mary Anning and used this to write a biography about her and planned or recreated Charles Darwin’s plant investigation. Here are just a few pieces of the fantastic work from this week, including two videos of the plant experiment being carried out.
Some children have also been doing lots of other exciting activities. Ben had a go at the PE Plank Challenge with his sister and Lucas has been cooking for his family.
Ash and Beech have been working incredibly hard this week. In phonics, we have been recapping some very important trigraphs. We have also been extending our learning by putting our words into context and using them in sentences. In maths, we have been continuing with our learning about number 8 and have even challenged ourselves to look at number 18 and how it is made from a ten and 8 ones. In literacy, we have been continuing our learning about ‘Dear Zoo’ and even made our own story books, they looked amazing! We have also been having lots of fun learning all about our Cornerstones topic ‘Starry Night’.
We have also been thinking about keeping our minds healthy for Children’s Mental Health Week. We thought about ways to support our friends and discussed the importance of talking about how we are feeling. We all made sure that we took 15 mins on ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ to look after ourselves. Here is a fantastic example of one of our wellbeing activities:
Foundation have worked particularly hard at using their ‘metacognition minds’ this week. We learnt all about the metacognition cycle and how we can plan, monitor and evaluate our learning. Ash and Beech worked so hard and planned their response to a maths activity. They explained what resource they would use and why it would be useful, they then monitored their progress and evaluated how well it worked! We even ensured we used our oracy skills to communicate our answers effectively! WOW, Foundation, you really do have magnificent metacognition minds!
We are so proud of you all! 🙂
Take a look at our amazing learning below:
As part of Children’s Mental Health Week, we have been taking part in Mindfulness activities such as creating mandalas. We have also been listening to Mindfulness music and taking part in yoga sessions in order to learn the skills of how to be calm and relaxed in order to help with mental wellbeing.
Year 2 enjoyed a very creative afternoon with making monarch models! They chose an English monarch and then were asked to make a model/picture of him/her. They were allowed to use anything in the classroom!!!!!
Wow, another fabulous week in Foundation. In our cornerstones learning we have discussed how we see the moon. We loved getting our hands dirty to create the texture of the moons surface.
We have really enjoyed reading our up-levelled ‘Dear zoo’ story map. The children loved using the vocabulary ‘quickly, immense and stretchy’. The children are extremely proud of their performances.
The children have worked incredibly hard to produce their own narrative writing. They have written the ‘Dear zoo’ story using their own ideas.
We have been working so hard in Maths, using the Numicon to explore fact families. We know our number bonds to 10 confidently now and have been using these known facts to help us work out other facts.
We started by finding four facts first, two additions and two subtractions.
We then challenged ourselves to find another way of presenting the four related facts. We needed reminding that we could only use the same three numbers each time. Having the Numicon there really helped us to see what was happening to each number.
How did you get on with your learning at home?
This week in our learning journey, we have been looking at what our hopes and dreams might be for the future and how we think the world might change. Have a look at Max’s video below and Isabella’s ideas for the future.
The future. 2100.
In the future they may develop flying cars. Like our cars but without wheels. They would have things like on a monorail and use magnets so they can float. They would be solar powered and electric.
It might even have robots to look after people that are contagious from diseases that would be pretty cool. I think they will have special body scanners that can tell you if you’re poorly and make you better. If they can’t I think robots will be able to independently do operations. I know we have medical robots now but they can’t do this.
You will be able to ask Alexa to do things like cook you meals with a built-in oven, Alexa could throw balls for your dog. Alexa would be able to help with all the day to day chores.
Paper printers could print 3D images, sugar paper for baking, and normal paper print.
Things would be a lot more expensive. My mum said sweets when she was younger were 1p that are now 5p. A loaf of bread was 33p and now averages at £1.10. A pint of milk was 17p and now is 54p on average in the 1980’s.
Tv wouldn’t look like it does now. It would be 3D without needing to wear glasses.
In the future I think a loaf of bread would be much more expensive along with everything else. Imagine £15 for a loaf of bread!
At the airport they could have planes that flew themselves completely. Not just auto pilot.
A charger for your electronics, mega powered and would charge your phone, laptop etc within a minute. A multi charger.
Everything is recyclable in the future. Renewable energy is used in all homes. No animals are endangered as they have special equipment to keep them healthy and to support development.
But really I don’t know what will happen in the future, I just hope the word will be more green . I just want the world to be a better place for everyone and everything.
We have creative in all the different ways we can participate in remote learning and today we practised our French numbers with a quick game of Kahoot!
We are also working on writing our opening of The BFG. We have been focusing on being resourceful and using all of our knowledge from our notes on previous lessons and linking this to ‘The Forgetting Curve’. Have a read of this fantastic opening below:
In the middle of the witching hour, a towering Oak tree was home to a screeching owl. With a flap of its wings it took off from the branch, flailing wildly to escape the shadow that moved stealthily towards the town.
Whirling on the air currents, the owl proceeded to the town, coming to rest on the roof of Mrs Conker’s Home for Girls. In the dormitory below, Sophie rose cautiously from her cold creaky bed, put on her spectacles and looked through the frosted paines of the window. From her lookout she spied the snowy white owl perched on the roof.
Sophie got out of bed, slipping on her trainers, and began to creep across the room trying to avoid the creaky floorboards. Suddenly, lights in the corridor outside the door to the dormitory flicked on and the disembodied voice of Mrs Conker pierced through the room “Who’s that out of bed?!”
Sophie timidly replied “Sophie miss.”
Mrs Conker bellowed back “Get back to bed and we will continue this in the morning!”
The red haired orphan looked back at the old faded door and decided Mrs Conker had left. She began to creep back towards the window. Looking out into the street below, she noticed how the buildings looked crooked and foreboding in the shadowy light. Just as she was about to close the curtains a clap and flash of thunder and lightning rolled through the town casting a silvery glow which illuminated a tall, hooded figure!
We also spent some time interviewing members of our family or friends, discussing how they felt about retirement.
For this I interviewed my grampi who is retired over facetime.
When did you retire? – 1997
What did you do before you retired? – My grampi used to run his own company.
Do you like being in retirement ? – I love being in retirement but I don’t like being old .
Why do people retire? – they might be unfit to work , or they could reach an age where they want to do something other than work.
Would you have retired earlier/ later? – No.
What benefits is there to retirement? – you can do what you want when you want more or less.
Is there anything you don’t like about retirement? – yes, it feels like you get older quicker.
Do you have any worries now you’re retired? – no , not apart from trying to keep healthy.
Keep up the great work Year 5!
For Wellbeing Wednesday, we all enjoyed a variety of activities. Half of Year 2 found their inner peace during a yoga session in the hall. The other half completed mandala patterns as a calming activity. We had a great afternoon and look forward to our activities for next week! Read more
We have been having fun with spelling in Year Three.
Have a look at the table below and the photos of us. Can you find and object and say what the rules for that object is if it becomes plural?
This week as part of their SOLE activities Year 2 had to pick their favourite Monarch that they have been learning about this half term and create a model of them. Their brief was to have a look and see what they had around the house and be creative. Here are some of the Magnificent Monarchs that have been made:
Here are some videos and images of scenes that the children in Year 3 have made. They are reenacting elements of life in the Bronze Age, in particular the Beaker People who travelled from Europe to the UK. What can you learn about their lives from these videos?
Here is the personal PE challenge for week 3! This week’s challenge is to see how long you can hold the plank position for. You can use the video to help you if you need to:
Remember to share any photos or videos of your efforts!
Year 6 have been amazing once again this week. They have continued to be resilient and approach their home learning and Zoom sessions with a positive attitude. This week in year 6, we have been exploring decimals further in maths, focusing on the past, present and future progressive tense in grammar and practising our ‘shun’ suffixes in our spelling lessons. As part of our literacy, we have written another scene for our story. This scene was written as a diary entry so we have learnt about the features and skills for this throughout the week, eventually building up to writing the diary entry today.
Here are some examples of the fantastic paragraphs that were written and the grammar work.
In SOLE, we have continued to work on our ‘Darwin’s Delights’ topic. This week, we have learnt about how birds’ beaks have evolved by carrying out investigations and how animals have adapted to their environment in the Galapagos Islands. We also wrote poems and created bar and line graphs to show our results of the experiments.
Here is a video to show all of the excellent SOLE work from this week.
Well done year 6, we are really proud of your efforts!
Foundation have been working so hard this week and I have been so impressed with their enthusiasm and resilience. We have had a really exciting week on zoom! We have been playing ‘I spy a tricky word’, feeding polar bears fish and enjoying lots of fun games. In maths, we have been continuing to explore the number 8. We looked at composition of number, worked with number lines and used our ‘metacognition minds’ to extend our learning and make our brains bigger. In phonics, we have been recapping our digraphs and reading sentences with capital letters and full stops. For our Cornerstones topic of ‘Starry Night’, we have been making bat caves, finding out interesting facts about stars and discussing bedtime routines. In Literacy, Gerald the giraffe came back to visit and we wrote some fantastic sentences about what zone he was in. We used words like: frustrated, thrilled and heartbroken to describe Gerald’s feelings. We also worked hard on up levelling our adjectives to describe the animals in Rod Campbell’s ‘Dear Zoo’ and I was amazed to see words like: colossal, immense and towering! What fantastic vocabulary we have in Foundation!
Amazing work Foundation, you are making us so proud! 🙂
Have a look at our amazing learning below:
We have been working hard in Year 6 this week. Not only have we introduced some new skills (in PE and Computing), we have also been embedding some already known skills.
In P.E., we have been using netball as our focus game. This week we were trying to attract the attention of our team mates – without alerting the opposite time. This can be quite tricky! We were also reinforcing our passing skills – using the chest pass and bounce pass.
In Computing, we have been using data from the voyage of the Beagle to create line graphs. These line graphs showed the distance of the Beagle from its home port.
We have also been applying our literacy skill in our SOLE sessions. We had a may to create a poem about the Galapagos. Here are two examples:
Finally, in Science, we have been studying evolution and adaptation. One part of this involved looking at how a specific animal had adapted over time. One of our favourite activities was our beak investigation. Inspired by Charles Darwin’s research on Chaffinches, we experimented with different tools and seeds to see which worked best.
I hope you enjoyed looking at some of what we have done this week.
For the first part of half term our topic has been ‘Starry Night’. The children have enjoyed exploring the differences between the world at night time compared with daytime, through a range of exciting and creative activities. They have learnt about nocturnal animals and how they find food when it is dark. We have discussed people who work at night and the different jobs that people do when we are asleep, and they have learnt about bedtime routines and the importance of a good night’s sleep. The pictures you can see here are their very own creations of the sky at night time and what a full moon looks like including its craters!
We had so much fun in PE today. We started with a team building warm-up. The children stood in a line, one behind each other, as the child at the back had to crawl through the legs of the other children in their team. Gradually the line of children moved forward until one team reached the end of the hall first.
We then practised improving our posture and balance by pointing our toes, stretching one leg out, bending the knee and then taking a graceful step forwards. The children tried so hard, even though it proved quite a challenge.
In Foundation, we have really enjoyed learning about our cornerstones topics.
We have been learning all about the night time. We have looked at different bedtime routines and heard all the sounds that might indicate it is bedtime.
We have discussed different night time animals and looked at why it is dark at night time. The children were amazing at using the language of ” agreed, disagreed or my thinking is different” to discuss, with their friends, why it became dark at night time. Well done Foundation!
The children loved playing number bingo this week. They described number in lots of different ways …” it has 2 digits…it is one more than… it is a 10 and a 9″.
The children did some fabulous incidental writing! Gerald the giraffe came back for another visit! We all enjoyed hearing how Gerald felt. He used the vocabulary frustrated, worried, terrified and excited- wow Gerald! The children decided to talk, and write, about how he was feeling being away from home. They used the interactive whiteboard to write their sentences.
Well done on another excellent week Foundation!
Here are just some of the things our young historians at home have been up to.
They have been finding out how tools and weapons changed during the Stone Age. Some people, carefully with the help of an adult, then had a go at making some of these.
They have been asking their own questions about historical findings and not only trying to answer their own questions but also decide if the evidence is trustworthy.
Lots of people have also been very creative when replicating Stone Age monuments. We’ve had different monuments from around the county made from cake, brownies, Jenga blocks, stones, clay, lego and more. I do love seeing all your creative ideas.
Well done Isobel for taking time out of her remote learning to support our local zoo with some fruit and vegetables for the animals!
Year Three are impressing with their willingness to reflect and make progress with their writing.
Over our Zoom meetings, we have been working together to mark some of our learning. We then used this the next day to make improvements to our writing. Can you see the learning we marked together in Green and Pink. Then you can see how we changed sections in purple or added parts to improve the next day.
Some of you have even missed BIG writing so much you’ve been putting on calm music. Everyone is really impressed by your wonderful efforts with your diary writing. They have been a joy to read.
