Puffins had a fab evening at the Autumn Disco last week. Here we are all ready and striking a pose!
This Anti-Bullying Week we have all come together to have discussions about what bullying means to us, how banter/teasing can turn into something more hurtful, and what we can do to stop bullying. The children shared some of their ideas which we brainstormed. The children also enjoyed listening to and having a bop about to the ‘Make a noise’ song. https://youtu.be/6UU_jOiway0?si=zFSJ3ImG3XTAX7VA
This week in D&T the children have been designing their own picture frames. They have investigated existing product, created lists of the resources they will use and drew a picture of what they hope it will look like.
Puffins got to have a look at ‘Google Earth’ during their Geography lesson this week. They zoomed into the school grounds and looked at what ‘Physical features’ and a ‘Human features’ are. The children then cut, stuck and labelled aerial images in their groups.
In maths, the children have been learning all about ‘fact families’.
During our PSHE lesson we have been learning all about what makes a family. The children shared with their talk partners who is in their families. We then brainstormed the children’s ideas and thoughts.
In our maths lessons we have been learning all about what makes a ‘whole’. The children looked at different items of different sizes and we discussed as a class what makes something a ‘whole’. We looked at how a ‘whole’ can be represented by one object. We then looked at how an object can be split into two or more ‘parts’. The children loved this because they got to split a biscuit into parts look at how many they created and then eat them! We used hoops to create our own ‘parts’ and the children worked out what the ‘whole’ would be. The children also looked a ‘part-part-whole’ model.
This week in English the children have been looking at a new topic ‘Nursery Rhymes’. We have been singing and performing quite a few, check out the videos below.
In Phonics this week the children have been learning all about spit digraphs. We are always very busy during our phonics lessons!
During Black history month we have been learning about Rosa Parks. The children watched a short video all about her and listened to the story. They then worked in pairs to sequence the events.
During our first music lesson the children listened to a piece of music, they got to have a little dance and talked about what instruments they could hear.
Puffins have been using their sense of taste during their science lesson. They got to try something sweet, sour and bitter.
