Activities in the Acorn Room
We have been so busy in the Acorn room over the past few months. Here are just some of the things we have been getting up to:
Black History Month
For Black History, we learned all about Mae Jemison, the first African American female astronaut. We learned a lot of space vocabulary then built and launched our very own rockets!
some fun Facts:
- Mae Jemison was the first real astronaut to appear in an episode of the Telvision series Star Trek: The Next Generation.
- Mae Jemison was inducted into the US National Women's Hall of Fame in 1993.
- Mae Jemison is multi-lingual! She speaks: English, Russian, Japanese and Swahili.
- Mae Jemison featured in a special edition Lego set based on the women of NASA in 2017.

In Shakespeare Week, we learned about the play Twelfth Night. We explored mirror movements because it had twins. We learned about disguises and we enacted a few quotes. Can you guess which photos goes with these quotes?
‘Some are born great. Others achieve greatness. Some have greatness thrust upon em.’ (Twelfth Night-William Shakespeare)
‘If music be the food of love, play on!’ (Twelfth Night-William Shakespeare)
Our science topic was about Observing Seasonal changes; We went for walks and noted the changes in our environment, we especially observed our favourite tree and then we made calendars to remind us of of findings from first hand experiences, memories and secondary resources.
