A New Year in Puffins

During our computing lessons we have been learning to use the ‘Beebots’.  We began by reminding the children of how they work and what directions they can make them move in.
In English, we have been reading a new book this term called ‘Where the Wild things are’ written by Maurice Sendak. The children have enjoyed telling the story using actions. They have also been very excited to explore our new role play area… where we found Max’s boat waiting for us!
The children have been busy sequencing the story and writing some of their own sentences alongside the pictures. They have also started to recreate the story choosing their own characters, settings and buildups.
Puffins  have been looking at numbers to 20. We have been representing them using tens frames and counters and working within our table groups to match the numeral to the correct quantity.
Puffins have enjoyed their first ‘peace circle’ of 2024. We got to check in share a fun fact about ourselves and play games.
