Light and Dark

This week for our science topic Puffins have been learning all about ‘Light and Dark’ in preparation for our trip to the ThinkTank next week. So far they have discussed sources of light and whether they are natural or man-made. Also they have discovered which animals are nocturnal and which are diurnal.

Self-portraits

This week in Art, Puffins class have been focusing on self-portraits. We have finished off drawing one side of a photo using different coloured pencils to give different tones. Today we have used dot painting over a photo of themselves to show what different effects they can give to a plain image.

Belonging

In RE today children have discussed where they belong and why.

Paige – ‘I belong to Rainbows and it makes me feel happy’
Jacob ‘I belong to Bells Farm school and I enjoy it here’
Ava ‘I belong to my grandmas house because it makes me feel safe and happy’

Our five senses

In science this week we have learnt all about our five senses. We tested our hearing and sight by completing a obstacle course with a blind fold and see how far we can see. We have used our touch to feel and describe different objects. We have also explored our taste by tasting things that were sweet, sour and salty.
