New beginnings

What a great first full week for the Puffins, we have learnt all about sorting using a variety of ways in maths, practised our HFW’s and handwriting and learnt our Talk for Writing focus book Going on a Bear Hunt. Finally today the children have discussed at length new beginnings in regards to changes to their lives and others. After we talked bout our choices and the impact these have when we start new ventures, in particular good and bad choices.

‘If you make a bad choice you will not be happy’ Millie
‘Making good choices means you get good things’ Oliver
‘If you make a bad choice you can change it back to a god choice’ Jessica
‘Good choices in school means you could get a silver or gold card’ Amaya

Welcome Puffins!

A big welcome to the new Puffins class. All the children have settled in amazingly and have been working hard on learning all the school and class rules, our learning behaviours, the importance of ‘Good to be Green’ and Peacemakers. All the teachers are impressed with how well all the children have transitioned in just a couple of days and we are looking forward to this next year.

Well done Puffins!

Well its been a long and lovely year with the Puffin class. They have been loud, they have been cheeky but most of all they have been amazing! It has been a pleasure to have the Puffins and the have all worked so hard and achieved so much and Miss Coghlan is very proud of each and everyone of them.

Buying from Miss Coghlan’s shop

To continue our money topic for maths this week Puffin class have been purchasing lots of different products from Miss Coghlan’s shop. The children had to count out the correct amounts and ensure they were selecting the correct coins and using their fantastic adding skills too.

Also thank you to Amelia and her dad for sharing their old money with us, the Puffins loved looking at them.

Money topic

The Puffins have started their new maths topic on Money today. They have discussed all the different types of coins there is and how to distinguish one from the other. Once they had a good understanding of the coins they were able to independently sort the coins with their partner.
