Hello and Welcome to the new Puffins blog!
The children are really starting to settle in to their new classroom environment, which is such an accomplishment for them.
I know Puffins class will be an enjoyable and positive experience for the children with lots of fun and learning both indoors and outdoors.
In the mornings we do our phonics, writing and our maths and in the afternoon we do either Science, Geography, Art, DT, RE or PHSCE.
In science we have been looking at skeletons. We have looked at dinosaur skeletons and the palaeontologist Mary Anning. This week we looked at the function of a skeleton and the differences between animal and human skeletons plus vertebrates and invertebrates. Next week we will be looking at the function of muscles in the body.
In Geography we have been looking at countries of the UK and their capital cities. This week we will be looking at continents and which continent the UK is in.
In Art last week we were looking at Abstract art, in particular Andy Warhol and Piet Mondrian. In the coming weeks we will be looking at various other artists and creating our own versions of their work.
Our PE days are on Wednesday mornings with Mr Ault.
Fridays are our Forest school days where we do outdoor learning in the wooded area. Please remember wellies and warm clothes for your child. 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.
