For the last two weeks in English the Puffins have been learning all about Instructions. We started with how to follow them by making pirate hats. The different types of instructions and the different features they should include. Finally, we built up to writing our own instructions on How to Grow Cress. Well done, Puffins!
Before the half term the Puffins worked their socks off to design and build a moving car. They started with product and market research then they tested materials and created their designs using Purple Mash. Finally, they cut and shaped their car nets and sawed and glued their own moving wheels. They did a fantastic job. Well done, Puffins!
This week the children have been learning how we change as we grow old. They were great at labelling all their body parts and discussing about how we can keep our bodies safe using the PANTS programme as guidance.
For spellings, this week the puffins are learning the split diagrpahs a_e, e_e, i_e and u_e. They practised spelling them and applying their reading skills them within a game.
This week the Puffins are starting Geography as part of their pirate topic. Today they have discussed the journey Blackbeard may have taken across the world. Identifying the continents and oceans on his journey.
This week for maths the Puffins have been applying their counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to multiplication. Today they have focused on understanding and making arrays.
This week the Puffins are learning how to use inference skills. This can be quite tricky for some young children, but they have done brilliantly. The children were able to infer who these different shoes could belong to by looking at the clues they could see now.
