The Puffins have being discussing what makes a happy or unhappy play time.
I happy when I play with friends – Jacob
It’s a happy playtime when people are nice to met – Karla
It’s an unhappy playtime when someone hits me – Declan
I’m not happy at playtime if I fall and my friends don’t help – Tatenda
So the Puffins created their own playtime rules to make playtime a happy time and discussed the different scenarios with each other to ensure there was a solution.
Puffins class have worked very hard on learning the story of Going on a Bear Hunt for English and finally they got to do their own stories this week. They were able to sequence their writing using their story maps and even added lots of adjectives to make their writing more interesting.
For Black History Month the children learnt about the amazing Rosa Parks and how she changed the law in America to ensure all people were treated equally regardless of their colour. The children were astonished by how people of colour were treated differently and learnt how Rosa Parks not only just sat on the bus she was making a stand against racism.
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!
During circle time today the Puffins were learning all about their friends likes and dislikes. We also discussed how its okay to have a different opinion to your friends as long as they are respectful and doesn’t purposely upset them.
