Local Area Walk

During our Geography lesson this week we went on a walk around our local area. The children worked in pairs to complete a map and list physical and human features that they could find.

The children loved taking part in the Reindeer Run this week to raise money for St Marys Hospice. The children all wore their antlers as they ran – even though the wind tried to blow them away. They were very proud of the stickers that they all received at the end. Well done Puffins!!! We would like to say a huge “THANK YOU” to everybody who raised or donated.

Puffins have really enjoyed their P.E lesson with Mr Gill and our new coach! They all got to try some great activities. They particularly liked to crawl and climb on the apparatus. Check out the photos to see some super action shots!

Book Advent

Puffins had their turn opening and reading the very first book from our book advent calendar today! They were really pleased with the book they received, ‘Michael Rosen’s Book of very silly poems’. We had a good old giggle when we read a few during ERIC.

This week in English, Puffins have been looking at the story of ‘The Three Billy Goats’. The children have been learning to sequence the story looking at each key part: opening, build up, problem and solution. The children then got to act it out in groups of four. We have also been learning how to use adjectives to describe the characters.

Puffins have enjoyed science this week. The children loved sharing baby photos of themselves with their friends and looking at how they have changed.
