Week Commencing 11th July 2022

In English, Puffins have enjoyed looking at our new story ‘The Gruffalo’. They have been working hard to think of adjectives and write them in a sentence.

In maths, we have been looking at counting in tens and ones and using this knowledge to count money. We played some games on the IWB and had a look at some coins during the practical part of our lesson.

This week in DT the children have been baking. We went down to the DT room with our recipe and cooked carrot cakes! The children worked hard at grating, measuring and pouring. They whisked and mixed until they had the perfect cake mixture. They then decided from their previous planning lesson that they wanted to add different flavours to make their carrot cakes taste better. Once they were baked the children got to decorate them with icing and sprinkles.

This week has also been our special Art Week. The children have enjoyed creating their art week pictures. Our artist is ‘Katsushika Hokusa’ who painted ‘The Great Wave off Kanagawa’.

Puffins have been practising some pirate songs in music. We then had a go at playing some glockenspiels alongside the music. Check out our videos below!

Enjoying our Learning

Puffins have enjoyed their first music lesson this week! We all played ‘guess the sound’ to introduce different types of instruments. The children then all got to have a go at playing an instrument. They then practised singing/rapping a song from ‘charanga’.

The children have been looking at a birds eye view of the school and grounds. They then identified key human and physical features on a map.

Puffins have been carrying on with their project in design and technology. This week the children got to design their photos frames and make a list of all the key features that they want to include when building.

Puffins have enjoyed using the bee bots this week. They have been navigating a board using directions forwards and backwards.

Video: Nursery rhymes

This week the children have learnt lots of new nursery rhymes and practiced ones they already knew. This has been difficult as due to COVID no singing was involved indoors but we were able to perform them outdoors, acted out the stories from the rhymes, ordered the lines to make sense and completed missing words to ensure we all learnt and understood them.
