This week in English the children have been planning their insect fact files. We discussed what is needed for a fact file and looked at children an example. We focused on looking at all the key parts – heading, introduction, subheading, labels, pictures/photographs, fun facts. We then set them off to read all about “Amazing Ants” with their partners.
Puffins have been very busy this week during our DT lessons. The children were shown the tools that they would be using to cut the dowels for their toy cars. They were then shown how to use the hacksaw and then encouraged to have a go with adult supervision.
In maths we focused on number bonds to 20. We worked with our partners to represent numbers on tens frames.
Puffins enjoyed exploring information books this week during ERIC. We sat in a circle on the carpet and shared any facts that we thought were amazing!! Did you know that there are more than 12,000 species of ants all over the world?
