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.
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.
Another busy day in the Puffin class completing our pieces of art. Today as part of our Andy Warhol focus we drew around our hands and laid them to create a pop art effect using a variety of bold colours.
Wow! what a busy afternoon. As part of art week we have been focusing on the artist Andy Warhol using his beautiful painting Sunrise Sunset. Today we have finished some fabric painting choosing our own colours to fad from light to dark by mixing different tones of the same colour. Also we used clay to replicate the painting ready to be painted on Thursday when they are dry.
The Puffin class have been on a journey today following Captain Blackbeard around the world in his ship. He took the children to all to visit all seven continents and across all 5 oceans to collect treasure. The children were then able to locate and label all seven continents and five oceans independently on a world map.
In English as part of our Talk for Writing we have been learning a warning tale The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Today the Puffins demonstrated how well they know the story by acting it out. At the end of the session some children became the characters in our hot seat challenge, the children asked some great relevant questions to the characters and the characters responded very well. Miss Coghlan can’t wait to read the Puffins own warning tales at the end of the week.
