Curriculum Overview 2021 - 2022.


We absolutely love our Bushcraft afternoon's with Miss. Heckler! We have been on the school field creating Hedgehog houses, tree spotting and collecting sticks and leaves. The children even managed to find the only muddy puddle on the field to do a bit of muddy puddle jumping!

Team Rubicon

The children got chance to have a go at skateboarding with Team Rubicon as our prize for being the most  Active School in Calderdale and West Yorkshire.

Exploring numbers in Maths

We have been busy learning all about the different ways to make number 6.


We have been learning all about Capacity with Mrs. Gould. The children had to fill the cups with different amounts of liquid and then use the new vocabulary to describe what they could see.

Remembrance Day

The children have been learning all about Remembrance Day this week and have been busy creating their own poppy pictures. As a class, we have made a giant poppy that is now being displayed in our classroom. Mrs. Mitchell and Mrs. Gee were so proud of how respectful they all were during the two minutes silence.
Well done Acorns!!

Our first PE lesson with Miss Heckler. We looked at different ways of traveling, climbing, balancing and jumping.
