Happy Friday Puffins! 

Hope that you are all safe and well. Yesterday, I went for a very long walk with my children and we have been doing the PE with Joe Wicks every morning. This morning when I woke up I could hardly move! Have you been doing any PE with Joe Wicks or similar? Did anyone clap at 8pm last night for the NHS and other frontline workers? All of our street did and it was great to hear. I also saw the International Space Station fly over my house! I will do a seperate blog about this. We would love to hear from you in a Blog as we are missing you all lots. 

Keep smiling and using your Worry Monsters if you need them.

Researching Mexico, by Miss Thompson

Date: 17th Mar 2020 @ 12:23pm

The children in Puffin's class are enjoying our Mexico topic. In Geography, they researched facts about Mexico using books and information cards and learnt about a small village called Tocuaro. Children had the opportunity to create Tocuaro masks. We are even using our research to write a non- chronological report in English. Super work Puffins!
