Hi Acorn Class!

I hope you’ve all had a great week and enjoyed reading ‘Sharing a Shell’. Have you all remembered to pick up your home learning packs from the office?

I have a special story time for you today, it is a different rhyming story this week written by Julia Donaldson. The pictures in this story are drawn by Emily Gravett. Cave Baby is set a very long time ago in the Stone Age! Does anything look different to you? What are they wearing? Where do they live?

Here are a few fun activities you could do next week:

Cave baby enjoyed making marks on stone, use pavement chalk to create marks on the big stones in your garden or out in the park!

Use big pieces of paper and paint or pens to create your own marks like Cave Baby.

Create your own hanging mobile using natural resources such as feathers, sticks or leaves like the one in the story!

Make a cave using paper mache. Recipe for Paper mache below.



Make your own cave at home using sheets. Maybe you could share some rhyming stories in your cave or listen to the Cave Baby story there!

Make some salt dough and create your own different stone shapes such as a bone. You could make your own hand or footprint in the salt dough and leave this to dry hard just like a rock.


Don’t forget you could do one of the activities from here too:

Summer Term Home Learning Activities

Well done to this week’s Busy Bees Kian, Joseph, Mackensie, Poppy and Esteven!

Esteven has been sharing his favourite stories at home. He has really been looking after his stories, turning the pages one at a time and holding them vey carefully. Well done Esteven!

Kian has been practicing writing his name at home, super job Kian!

Mackensie was very thoughtful when it was Father’s Day and made her daddy a delicious red velvet cake, I am sure your daddy loved that Mackensie. Also having fun in the sun with Madison and Hudson!

Joseph has been working really hard practicing his letters this week. He has created an enormous marble run which looks like so much fun! Joseph has also been doing some gardening and has grown some pea pods. They look delicious!


Poppy has some very exciting news…her bean has started to sprout! Well done for taking great care of your bean Poppy. Poppy has been enjoying sharing stories in the garden, what a good idea. I like to read outside too Poppy!

Some of the Acorns in Nursery this week enjoyed cutting and tasting some of the fruit from the ‘Each Peach Pear Plum’ story time.

Look at this amazing name writing! Don’t forget to keep up practicing your name at home if you are going up to Oak Class in September. Keep up doing different activities such as threading to get those finger muscles nice and strong too!

Look at these super Numberblocks in order from smallest to biggest. Well done Acorns!

Keep sending me all of your wonderful home learning to admin@st-annes.wandsworth.sch.uk with Acorns in the subject line for me to see.

Have a wonderful weekend Acorns!

Best wishes,

Mrs Eyre
