We took the time today to enjoy the warm September weather and utilise the amazing green spaces we have. We picked flowers, explored and then had some running races 🌿🌳

Remember parents if the Easter Bunny brings these for your little ones then it’s your parental duty to scoff the lot...carefully! 🐥😂

Today it is with great sadness that we heard the news that HM Queen Elizabeth has passed away.
We hadn’t had time to share this with having our Little Acorns back in the setting but we are honoured to have received this commemorative card in recent weeks in response to a letter and card our children sent to Her Majesty for her Platinum Jubilee.
We spent a lot of time over the last few terms talking to the children about the Queen and all the things she has achieved, inspired and encouraged and we will continue to remember her mighty reign of our country.
How much sand is needed for a sparkling new sand house??? A LOT! Super excited taking delivery this morning ready for our little explorers to arrive tomorrow!
Wishing all of our Little Acorns an amazing first day in Reception, we will be thinking of you all over the next few days. We are so very proud of each and every one of you.
Please don't forget to send us a first day photo!
We miss you already.
Mel, Jackie and the LAK team xx
Huge good luck wishes to Ben and Tracy from Stoke Mandeville Football Club. They are holding a Family Funday today to raise funds for the club they founded in 2018 to support young children in the area.
Ben and Tracy are huge LAK supporters and still attend every fundraising event despite their children moving onto big school.
If you have an hour or two free, I know they would love to see you The Bull Stoke Mandeville.
After months and months of phenomenal fundraising, our Sand Room dream is coming true!
Every year about this time we post the same thing…the term stops but we don’t! We are extremely proud that Little Acorns Kindergarten is an accredited pre-school with Millie's Trust continuing our Millie’s Mark award with 100% of staff being paediatric first aid trained.
You allow us to look after and teach your children so in return we offer you the knowledge that we are doing all we can to keep them safe, happy and well. During our course we took time to make sure everyone was familiar with the newly placed defibrillator and how to access it. We hope we never need to use it but we are all prepared if we do.

We love little creative minds and what they can achieve. This week we have been talking to children about different forms of art and taking inspiration from the wonderful modernist sculpter Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden. The children used their clay in their own individual ways to create something from their imagination. Each piece is as unique as the child who created it and we love them all.
Huge thanks to the amazing Sarah Greer Photography who came and gave our Little Acorns a mini photography masterclass today!
One budding Little Acorn photographer-of-the-future said at the end “but I want to learn more!” We are so lucky to have members of the community who can inspire and share their experiences with us. Thank you Sarah! 📸

Running (and running and running) for Little Acorns!

On Thursday 7th April, one of our Little Acorns’ parents Alf, is going to run on a treadmill outside the setting from 8am until 5pm…that’s a whopping NINE hours!
Alf is an experienced distance runner and will be undertaking this challenge solo but we would love for you to come along and show him support whilst having a bit of fun at the same time.
GUESS THE DISTANCE

🧬🔬science week - day 5🧑🏼🔬🧪
Today was the turn of the carbon snake - we have renamed it carbon rock. By combining bicarbonate, icing sugar, sand and lighter fluid and then setting fire to it (adults only!) we got to watch from a distance as the carbon began to rise and make rock like structures!
🧬🔬Science week - day 4🧪🧑🏼🔬
HOW DO ELEPHANTS CLEAN THEIR TEETH?!
With elephant toothpaste of course!! 🐘🪥 Today we had a good chat about substances we should never touch and why it’s important to listen to our grown ups who keep us safe. Then we got to watch as activated yeast and food colouring bubble away when added to peroxide making ‘elephants toothpaste’!
🧬🔬Science week - day 3🧪🧑🏼🔬
Talk about all the seasons at once…sun yesterday, rain today and at LAK we had snow this afternoon!!
Our mini scientists today discovered that by combining bicarbonate of soda with hair conditioner you can have a go at building your own snowman!
Lak science week - pressure rockets
🧬🔬Science week day 2!🧑🏼🔬🧪

🔬🧬It’s science week!🧪🧑🏼🔬
We started the weeks experiments today by looking at the chemical reaction between lemons, baking soda and soap. And what a reaction you get…mini lemony volcanos!
Kings and Queens is our topic this week. So the children made their own cucumber sandwiches and we had a banquet - complete with medieval music! Look just how amazing these portraits of the Queen look, we’re super proud 👑
🌍📚Happy World Book Day! 🌍📚
Today we celebrated all things books and we had a fabulous time doing so. We shared stories, we listened to each other and to some special visitors, we drew book covers and we learned that audio books can also tell us stories while we had a little relax. We love surrounding our children with books everyday & it’s wonderful to see their appreciation grow.
We love this quote…
⭐️I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book⭐️ J.K.Rowling
We’re looking at music this week….first day in and we’ve created our own rock band! 🤘🏻🎸🎤🎹 Their rider sheet demands are epic…what have we done 😆🥛🥛🥛🥛🥛🥛🥛🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓🍓
