We have really enjoyed our first Computing topic this half term; Digital Citizenship.This unit was all about how to keep ourselves safe online. We learnt how using an avatar is much safer than using a photo and created our own avatars. We read the story Chicken Clicking and looked at her online profile, identifying all the things she did that put her in danger and looking at whether the information she shared on her profile was safe or not. We then created our own 'safe' profiles. The last thing we created were online safety posters to show all our previous learning. Super work from Puffins!

Here is this week's Reading Challenge Winner! This little star has read 5 times every week and uploaded his diary to Seesaw. He has even been reading a bit of Roald Dahl! Keep it up Mr!
Here is this week's House Point Winner! This little star has collected the most house points in Puffins class this week! There were a couple of children who did come close but she worked hard to keep her lead! What a great role model! I can't wait to see who our next winner is!
I can't quite believe we've come to the end of our first half term! I feel really proud when I think back to some of our first lessons together and how far you have come since then. We really have learnt so much!! I have put a couple of pictures of our working walls on so you can see some of the work we have been doing this half term. This week we created some fantastic team collages, made online safety posters on Purple Mash, practised our dodging skills in PE and learned about how to keep ourselves safe around medicines.
Hope you have a lovely half term! Stay Safe! :)

Owls have been learning about how to use the Internet safely. We have created a digital footprint of how we use the Internet, practised writing emails within the safety of Purple Mash and learnt how people can change their identity on line to try and trick us! We also practised leaving kind comments on our friends work on Seesaw.
We have really enjoyed our Computing topic - Digital Citizenship.

This week the children have been learning how to be safe when they are using their tablets and phones.
We watched 'Smartie the Penguin' as he asked an adult for help when he was unsure about something he saw on his tablet.

Well done to all our Penguin winners this week!
What a great last week of term we have had!

What an awesome afternoon we have had! We donned our wellies and waterproofs and headed out on hills to roll some pumpkins. Before we let them go we ordered them according to size and then talked about which pumpkin we thought would roll the quickest!
Penguins loved rolling them down the hill cheering for their pumpkin. We realised that the biggest one was often the quickest!
To finish we decided to see how quick we would roll! This was great fun but we need to work on our rolling skills!
If you haven't brought wellies and suits in please bring in for after the half term, thank you!

To support the children with their physical development we incorporated a physical challenge into our daily mile time.
During this time, the children used an Active Alphabet. The aim was to complete the word as many times as they could in 5 minutes.
They have all worked hard to improve their scores from the previous week, encouraging their partners as 'motivation buddies'.

This week's Computing lesson centred around the topic of 'good communication', something that supports our learning this term of staying safe online. The children discussed how they communicate online and Mr Pryle was surprised to learn that the children use over 15 different ways to communicate online with their friends and family! We discussed how to stay safe when exchanging messages, what not to share online and what a good email looks like. Here are some of the children's examples and the work we created...

We enjoyed our number hunt this week, we have some great detectives in class! We have also been writing numerals in our inside and outside classroom with a special focus on 0 and 1. Continuing with our Halloween theme, we have been building up our muscles, fine motor skills and creative skills with our pumpkin hammer challenge and skeleton making challenge! What was your favourite part of the week?
Date: 22nd Oct 2020 @ 3:18pm
We have been learning how to stay safe online. We have discussed what to do if we receive messages from someone we don't know and to never tell anyone our passwords.

We have had some amazing pieces of homework linked to rainforests this term. Keep up the great work Starlings!
Date: 22nd Oct 2020 @ 2:17pm
Do you like our spooky skeletons?
We have worked really hard this week to use the scissors to cut the straws and then arrange them to make a Skelton. The straws were really small so we had to use out nip nip grips to pick them up!

A challenge of drawing and decorating a pumpkin outside turned into much more today. The ground was really wet and when we added chalk to it, it changed. They then decided to see what happened if we added another colour; it made a different colour. The children were fascinated in all the colours they could make and the language they used was amazing! Well done Penguins, I am really proud of your learning.

This morning we managed to show off some of our topic homework as part of our KS2 assembly. It was extremely enjoyable to see so much effort and passion with our home learning! There have been some outstanding pieces and something that both Mr Pryle and Mrs Boneham are so pleased with. Keep it up all of you, superb learning!

This week we have been working on our final pieces of art work for the term. We used the skills we have learnt during the topic to work as a team to create a large scale collage of an animal in its habitat. It was a bit tricky working as a team at first, especially having to agree on which animal and habitat, but we all managed to resolve our problems independently and the outcomes were amazing! Super proud! ⭐️

Look at the wonderful work the Woodpecker class have done ! It is a rainforest collage scene using different materials, inspired by the artist Henri Rousseau .
