Welcome to the Puffin Class web page!
Welcome to the Puffin class web page. Through clicking on the tabs below you will find a copy of our latest curriculum guide so that you know what your child is learning about this term, a handy reminder of what your child needs for each day so that you can help them to be as prepared as they can be and a Home Learning tab for you to know what learning is expected to be carried out at home.
The class team are Mrs Harper, Miss Chegwyn and Ms Kasumu-Croft. A member of the team will be happy to briefly answer any quick questions you have at drop-off in the morning (as the children are of course their main priority at this point) or, if more suitable, they would be happy to make a mutually convenient appointment after school to have a longer discussion.
We will be taking part in a wide variety of learning activities throughout the school year and we will do our very best to add photos and write-ups of all of these wonderful experiences below so that you can enjoy sharing in your child's learning...
Over the last few weeks we have been focusing on a book called 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra. We have been making our own Supertato characters, setting jelly traps to catch the Evil Pea, making wanted posters and investigating what happened to the frozen vegetables! (Luckily we caught the Evil Pea and now the vegetables are safe and sound back in our class). The children have also designed some fantastic superheroes of their own.
Forest school - Part 2
This term we have been back outside for Forest school - we really enjoyed our morning, creating crowns and working together to create Spring pictures. The children set about finding leaves, grass, daisies, berries and twigs to build their masterpieces. We think they look fabulous!
We really enjoyed our Forest School sessions with Mrs Pearson. We wrapped up in our wellies and warm clothes and spent some time exploring our outdoor area. We worked together to collect different coloured leaves, berries and twigs to create a giant collaborative snail - we were very pleased with our effort.
As a treat we also enjoyed some warm milk and a biscuit at the end of the session!
In Literacy we read the story 'Rosie's Walk' by Pat Hutchins - we enjoyed acting out and sequencing the story.
We decided to have a go at making our own bread, the children did so well at measuring out all the ingredients. The best part was tasting our freshly baked loaf and choosing our favourite topping!
We really enjoy our daily phonics sessions. Each day we learn a new sound and we now know lots! We have started learning how to blend these sounds together to read and write some simple words. We like to make phonics engaging and fun for everyone so we play lots of games and try to make each activity hands on.
