Children compared 2 numbers and then addition sums. They then wrote the correct symbol to represent greater than/less than and equal to. As a Step 3 challenge children needed to sort these equations into true or false columns and prove it! Well done.

We have had a great time learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans in Geography this week. We used Google Earth on iPads to locate continents and also the UK, we used an interactive globe and atlases to colour and label a world map! How many can you remember?

When we arrived at school after half term, we had a spooky skeleton visitor in our classroom! Our class have been reading the book funny bones. We read half of the book, predicted what might happen and acted it out. We also gave the skeletons a profile as they had no names in the book! All of the children have loved giving the skeletons names and a personality.

Penguins have worked hard to create new books for their friends in Nursery. They have spent the week planning it, making it and then read their creations to the Nursery children. What a lovely way to end the week!

Puffins had a great PE lesson this week. We applied the effective running style we have been learning about in a game situation. First we played ‘Domes and Dishes’. We worked in two groups to turn the cones into ‘domes’ or ‘dishes’, the team with the most won. We then played ‘Rob the nest’. We worked in 4 teams and had to collect as many things as we could from the nest in the middle. Some brilliant team work, well done!

This is afternoon we went into a time machine to another classroom from the past. We became Victorian children and we did some lessons using chalk and a pretend slate. One of our children even tried on a dunce hat too! We then made comparisons between the past and present classrooms.

This week we have been using our counting skills to find one more than a number. Miss Southern set us a challenge to find all the dominoes that showed one more. We almost blew her socks off!

This week we have been reading ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ by Judith Kerr. We thought it was very funny when the tiger couldn’t stop eating and ate everything in Sophie’s house! We wrote a shopping list for Sophie’s mum, drew some pictures to answer questions about the text, sequenced the story and we hot seated the tiger. A very busy morning in Puffins!

This morning we loved being able to ask Mrs Forshaw questions about Lizzy our very own school reptile. We have been learning all about animals in Science and enjoyed having the opportunity to ask questions and touch and hold her. We used information books to find out even more facts.

We played a whole class game today. Mrs Lenagan held up some objects and if we had a card that represented the number we had to come to the front. We also had to move to music and find all our friend that had the same number of objects they were representing. We blew our Teacher’s socks off! How many ways can you think to represent and amount of objects?

We joined Dove Class today to share our letters back to the Crayons from our story. We listened to some children perform their letter too. The Puffin Class were captivated!
Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 9:46am
This morning we listened to the Dove Class read us The Day the Crayons Quit which is our whole school book focus and we helped by holding up the crayon characters. Once the children went back to their class we got into our groups and produced freeze frames for the different characters and acted them out on the outdoor stage. Can you guess who we were?

What a brilliant world book day we have had!
We first introduced ourselves and told each other what character we are.
We then wrote about our favourite story character. Look at our amazing writing!
We have also made some book marks to take home to use.
Woodpecker class then came down to read us a story; we loved this!
To finish the day our grownups came in to read their favourite stories to us!
We have had so much fun and can’t wait for next year already!

We had a great afternoon showing some of our adults what we have been up to in Nursery.
Thank you to everybody that came to the session!
