Essential and desirable

This afternoon the Puffins have had a great discussion on what is essential and what is desirable. First we established what these words meant and then we organised some pictures into a essential and desirable items. The poll at the end was very interesting.

Laptop – 4/25 children said was essential
Food 25/25 said was essential
Toys 13/25 said was desirable
Water 25/25 said it was essential
Home 25/25 said it was essential
Sweets 1/25 said they were essential
Education 23/25 said it is essential

2D and 3D shapes

This week in maths we have been concentrating on our 2D and 3D shapes also positional directions and ordinal numbers. We have had great for exploring how to group shapes and learning all the names and properties of both the 2D and 3D shapes. The children have especially enjoyed racing!

Behaviours for learning

As part of behaviours for learning focus today Puffins have been expanding their concentration techniques. First we have to count to 50 without saying the number 4, then we had to not get distracted by our friends pulling faces at us (even when they were really funny!) and finally we had to balance a book on our heads whilst moving. All of these skills take an amazing amount of concentration and the Puffins were great at it.
