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!

Kindness Week

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 2:31pm

We were talking about being a good friend in PSHE today when Mrs Lenagan  asked us to squeeze out toothpaste…and then put it back in! We explained that we can’t do that and then compared this to unkind words said to other people. Just like the toothpaste, the words that we say, once out are irreversible to take back.

We have had a lovely time this afternoon with our families making Valentines themed crafts. Hope everyone has a lovely half term!

On Tuesday it was Safer Internet day.

We created profiles practicing our Safer internet rules. This included not using our full names.

Fantastic homework being brought in. It’s out of this world. Well done!

Mental Health Week

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 2:24pm

This week we have been learning all about Mental Health under the theme of Find your Brave. We have listened to The Lion Inside story and talked about when we have been brave and how we felt before and after. We have also raised the profile of this by wearing our jumpers inside out…because inside matters too! The children have identified a trusted adult who could help them find their brave because being brave doesn’t mean that you have to do things all alone!

Outdoor Maths

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 2:23pm

Outdoor counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

The children had a great time grouping pebbles, conkers and drawing around fingers and feet to count up in 2s, 5s and 10s. The children were then challenged to cover up the number in the sequence and their partner had to work out which number was missing.

Temple Trip

What an an amazing trip to the Temple today. We were met with a warm welcome, had the opportunity to explore and asked lots of questions. What was your favourite part?

Maths Superstars

In maths this week, we are looking at comparing number sentences up to 20. We had some maths superstars in the class who were able to use < > = to compare number sentences that added up to numbers past 10! Super work Puffins class!

Weather Forecast

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 2:18pm

We have been learning about pitch and exploring high and low sounds made from chime bars, glockenspiels and water bottles. We discovered that the longer the chime bar or the more empty the water bottle the lower the sound and the smaller the chime bar and fuller the water bottle the higher the pitch!


Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 2:17pm

We have been learning about the planets in our solar system. We made the mnemonic…









to help us remember the order.
