Puffins - Week commencing 7th February 2022
Date: 3rd Feb 2022 @ 2:28pm
Hello and Welcome to Puffins Weekly blog!
Friday Superstar: Harrison
Top Table: Shayne and Josh
This week Puffins have had a great time making a start on our school garden. We have been digging the big mound of earth at the front of the woodland. We were filling the wheelbarrow and emptying it onto the outer areas where we have decided to grow wild flowers to attract bees and butterflies.
Puffins will continue with their hard work in the mornings and enjoy the school garden project in the afternoons. Afternoons in the school garden will also incorporate Science, Geography, Art, DT and PHSCE. We found lots of different creatures living in the soil and many insect larvae so we will be taking photographs and researching them on the internet. We will be looking at life cycles and also finding out what would be the best plants to grow to attract insects and wild life into our school garden.
With our school garden project continuing every afternoon, please remember that they will need their wellies and warm clothing for their outdoor learning. Wellies can be kept in school if need be.
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.
