Puffins have enjoyed art this week. They have been drawing pictures of pirates in the style of ‘Howard Pyle’.
The children have also loved using clay to create a coronation plaque. They got to use lots of different techniques and resources to make their masterpieces using cutters, rolling pins and their hands to create the perfect shapes.
In History the children have been introduced to their new topic PIRATES! Puffins watched a clip all about pirates then as a class we brainstormed some of the facts we found interesting.
Following on from our story ‘The magic porridge pot’ the children got to hotseat a character. The children came up with some questions to ask the old lady.
Puffins have finally completed their walk of the local area which was cancelled in the autumn term! They spotted lots of ‘Human’ and ‘Physical’ features.
In Science this week, the children have been experimenting with lots of different resources to see which are transparent, translucent or opaque.
Puffins have also had lots of fun during their PE lesson!
In maths the children have been learning about measuring. They have been working with their partners to measure a variety of pictures in centimetres.
