Geography – This week in geography the children have been learning all about the weather. We have been looking at the 4 seasons and how the weather changes in each. The children watched a short clip and then had to draw and label the different seasons. Finally, the children got to predict what the weather will be like next week. We can’t wait to see if our predictions are correct!!!
Art – During art this week the children were given the task of drawing a toy from the past.
Mrs Husbands demonstrated how to draw a still life picture and how to colour it using different techniques to create different shades.
History – This week in History the children have been introduced to toys from the past. They got to look and play with each toy. A few children commented on how there was no batteries, buttons, or remotes.
ERIC – This week in ERIC the children have enjoyed using the torches for flashlight Wednesday. We turned off all of the lights and the children paired off. They could sit anywhere they liked, so many of them decided to crawl underneath the tables.
The children have loved painted their photo frames in DT this week. Next week they will have the opportunity to decorate using lots of sequins, gems and buttons.
Puffins have been looking at feelings this week during R.E. We have been specifically looking at what makes us feel happy. The children got to talk to their talk partners about a happy moment which they then drew.
The children got very excited this week for science. They all had a go at using their sense of touch and taste. The children had to think of some adjectives to describe what they could feel. We had some funny reactions to the different items!
During this week’s P.E lesson the children got to practice and perfect their pencil rolls.
Eric has become an exciting part of our daily timetable. All the children look forward to this part of the day. They have explored the school library, learning how to read with a partner and taking part in their first flashlight Friday.
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!
This week the Puffins are learning all about plants. Today we kicked off our Science with a group task to match a variety of flowers to their names. We also went outside and explored the different flowers and trees we have growing around our school.
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 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.
