Star of the Week- Puffin Class 12/06/20

Date: 12th Jun 2020 @ 8:20am

It has been a really difficult choice again this week, as we have seen so much incredible home learning and such amazing attitudes and effort in school. Henri has shone out as someone who has given 100% to everything he has been challenged with this week. He has applied himself, listened to new rules and routines and been an incredible friend to the whole class. We love this attitude Henri, you have brought sunshine into our Bubble this week!

Mrs Jackson has found a wonderful writing competition for you to complete for this week's writing task. It sounds fantastic! We thought this would be ia great opportunity for you to write about something you have a lot of knowledge about. The competition is asking for pieces of written work relating to any British Wildlife. Now here is the fun part, you can present your writing by constructing a story, a poem, a fact file, a diary entry - it is completely up to you. The link below will send you to the page you need to read, regarding a little more information and more importantly how to enter.

When completed, please take a picture of your writing and add it to your blog.

Now it is not a writing task without a success criteria to help you along, there are things we would still like you to include even though the way you present is not set:

Success Criteria – Writing Competition


I have written my piece about British Wildlife


I have used my own ideas and it is all my own work


I have shown an understanding of my chosen subject


I have used scientific terms e.g habitat, diet etc


I have written in full sentences


I have used capital letters and full stops


I have included adjectives


I have included conjunctions


My writing makes sense to the reader



Have a wonderful day everyone!

Hello Puffins,

It’s Friday! Hope you have had a great week so far and have something nice planned for the weekend. I am really looking forward to seeing the children who are returning on Monday and seeing lots of blogs from the other children.


Special Mentions

There's lots of phonics on the blog this week which always makes me smile. There are some super examples below. We have another letter being sent to the Queen which I am sure she will be very excited to receive. Oliver has worked hard on this rocket Purple Mash work this is demonstrating wonderful digital literacy skills (Mrs Jarrett will be proud as Computing Lead). Henri has made a delicious lollipop picture and Willow has created some fabulous BFG jars but I definitely won’t be eating those Willow!
