King Charles III Coronation

King Charles' Coronation celebration started early in Little Acorns.
You can see below, that Charles and Camilla came to Little Acorns to get crowned King and Queen.
The children had a wonderful time, they made their own crowns, their own picnic snack, and we also did something special in the forest!
To celebrate we planted an Oak tree down in the forest, so more 'Little Acorns' can grow!
The children helped to dig the hole and plant the tree.
When we went to visit later, there were lots of little Coronation Lion teddy gifts for the children. These are from us to help the children remember the special occasion.
We added a sign and a crown base for the tree.
We hope you all have a lovely Coronation weekend!

Why is independence important?

Independence is about learning to do things for oneself, which includes making decisions and taking on responsibility. These are hugely important skills for children to learn to cope with in adulthood.

Building confidence - We know that when independence grows, a child's confidence also grows. As they master new skills or take on some responsibility, they begin to see themselves as being capable. This gives them added confidence and makes them more likely to try out new things.

MArvin wanted more

This is our Marvin Wanted More wall display!
The children have enjoyed listening to the stories and helping to make it.
Our Marvin display will be up in Parbold Library for a little while so you will be able to go and see it in person!

The queens platinum jubilee

We planted a tree for the Queen's Canopy on the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

With a little help from some parents, we planted the tree in our Down in the Forest area and created a crown of seating around it.

We even got an official metal plaque to display with it.

We are very proud of our tree and look forward to seeing it grow!
