Puffins Week Beginning 21st March 2022

Week commencing 21st March 2022
Hello and Welcome to Puffins Weekly blog!
I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunshine this weekend!!
Puffins were learning about the lifecycles of butterflies, ladybirds, bees, frogs and the sunflower. We planted out our sunflowers so we are going to be measuring them each week to see how long it takes for them to grow.
Our caterpillars are growing now so it won’t be long before they will turn into a chrysalis. We are checking them every day and taking photographs of them each week.
Puffins will be doing lots of art in the afternoons. We will be looking at paintings by Claude Monet, in particular his famous lilies paintings. We will be sketching, using different types of paint, and creating different textures in our work.
We will also be planting some runner beans, onions and rhubarb this week plus some more wild flowers and other flowering plants.
Please encourage your child to read a few pages of their book each night and it would be helpful to practice their times tables with them too. At the moment, we are working on 10’s, 2’s and 5’s. The websites below are great fun for Times Tables practice.
Please remember to contact me via the school office if you have any questions.
