Today in art the Puffins have been learning how to mix primary colours to make secondary colours. Once this was mastered and the correct colour palette was made we all had fun applying them to a copy of the artist Kandinsky painting Concentric Circles.
As part of Safer Internet Week the Puffins have been discussing the word consent.
“Consent is when you ask your mom or teacher and they say you can” Maarya
We then moved on to reading the story Zap and Zoom Go Online.
We discovered how important it is to not give out own personal information and to always ask an adult for permission if something pops up.
I overheard lots of the puffins having great conversations such as;
“He shouldn’t give his name because he doesn’t know if it’s safe” Millie
“Zap made a good choice he didn’t share his full name” Naz Daisy W shared the story ‘”one time a messaged popped up on a PJ Masks game and asked for where I live so I told mummy”.
In PSHE today we focused on how all families are different. We shared with each other who is in our family and discussed what is the same and different in each family. We then read The Family Book by Todd Parr exploring different type of families.
“It ok to have different people in your family we love each other its great to have other people.” Imogen
“All people are different and that’s ok same as families. We all love each othe.r” Maya
The Puffin class have been working hard on their cold task read to start their talk for writing journey tale preparation tomorrow. Miss Coghlan loves to teach ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ – we hope the children will love it too!
As part of our topic for this half term we are learning all about Africa. Today the children have been trying out our new roleplay area pretending they are on safari. We have also as part of our geography discussed what would we need to pack if we went on holiday to Africa.
After a fantastic Christmas the Puffins have returned to school eager to learn. We are focusing on shape in Maths this week. The children have worked fantastically with their partners learning to identify 3D and 2D shapes and their properties.
