This afternoon Year 2 Toucans and Year 1 Puffins got together for an end of year treat. We all went onto the field for a fun picnic! We had a lovely time playing games together and then enjoyed some food. It was very hot so when we got back inside we had an extra special treat – everyone had an ice lolly to help them keep down.
Continuing our fantastic Arts Week on Georgia O’Keeffe the Puffins have been working together on a mural piece using Georgia O’Keeffe lily paintings. They have also done some watercolour paintings of lilies and created their own flowers using pipe cleaners all ready to be part of the art exhibit tomorrow.
Wow! A colourful start to Arts week. Today the children have learnt about our focus artist Georgia O’Keeffe, a fabulous still life painter who loved to painter landscapes and flowers. The children created their own version of a lily using tissue paper.
As part of our instruction writing the children learnt actions to a recipe and wrote it independently. Yesterday the children did a fantastic job making their own vegan cakes and edited their recipe as they went. Fantastic baking Puffins!
As part of Science, Puffins have been learning about materials. Today they have been exploring the properties of different materials and discussing what materials would be fit for different purposes and why.
