Today the Puffins have dissected the parts of a plant to have a closer look. After, they were able to identify and recall all the parts and their functions.
To recap what we learnt from our live lessons in lockdown, today we focussed on remembering animals classification. The children were able to identify all the different groups of animals and why they belong in those groups. It was great to hear them discussing why they belonged to certain groups, showing a good understanding of knowledge.
This week for science the Puffins have been focusing on senses. Today we have explored the sense of touch. The children were able to feel and describe how something felt and was able to relay this information back to their partner to guess what the object could be.
The Puffins have been learning all about the different parts of the body and in their groups also labelled them. We discussed why it was important to have a skeleton and learnt the fact that the adult body has 206 bones!
As part of our Science topic the children explored the forest and found lots of minibeasts lurking. The children were able to identify and share facts about the mini beasts they found and the habitats they live in.
As part of our growing topic for Science today, the Puffins have planted some cress seeds and will be observing how they grow over the next week.
As part of our Science topic, Year 1 Puffins have been learning about Light and Dark. Today they have been exploring what shadows are and how to make them.
We have been exploring our eyes this week. Today we have focussed on sight learning all about how the eye works. We also explored how we would feel if we had no sight.
