The Puffins have been hard at it this afternoon exploring and learning lots of facts and information about the world for geography. Today we have mainly focused on the seven continents and discussed where they are and compared the sizes and population.

Animal habitats and countries

Today the Puffins have been finishing our topic on Animals. We have allocated the animals to their habitats and countries. Here are some of the facts we have learnt along the way.

“Snakes have cold blood they are reptiles” Lola

“Tigers live in Asia they have fur to keep them warm” Nathan

“If elephants are hot they flap their ears to keep them cool” Callum.C

“Polar bears live in cold countries and have blubba to keep them warm” Brooke

“Giraffes live in Africa and they are herbivores” Kerris

“Hippos live in Africa and they can swim in water” Ryan

“Lions eat meat, they are carnivores” OIiver

Meet Turbo and Rosie


This week we had two new class pets, two African land snails who we have named Rosie and Turbo.

On Wednesday we had a visitor who gave us a very interesting talk about invertebrates. We learnt lots of information about invertebrates and the different invertebrates we would find in Africa.


After our visit we then made our own snails complete with African art. We thought about the colours we should include in our art and really focussed on using patterns.

Holiday in Africa

In Geography we are continuing our topic of Africa. This week we thought about how to holiday in Africa and the types of places you would visit. Here are some facts and observations about Africa.


We then wrote postcards home to the UK from Africa giving details about our holiday. We also thought about the objects we would need to pack in our suitcase to visit a hot country.
