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.

Excellent English

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!

Making cars

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 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.

Asking for help

For PSHE today the Puffins discussed about how to ask for help. We watched this video and spoke about what the boy did to ask for help. We then related this to school and about who helps use at school.

‘If I’m hurt, I can ask Ms Francis for help’ Thomas. L
‘If I’m stuck on my work and I have tried hard I can ask a friend for help’ Hannah
‘If I have had an argument with a friend, I can ask a teacher to do Peacemakers’ Thomas. S

We moved on to acting out scenarios of if we were hurt who would we call for help if someone stole something from me who would I call and if my house was on fire who would I call.

The children have all learnt to call 999 in emergencies and given the homework task to learn their address just in case.
