Puffins

Welcome to the Puffins' class page!
 

We are the youngest in school and are always "busy learning".

Miss Ellinor is the class teacher and she is supported by Mrs Adams, Mrs Webb and Mrs Davis - our teaching assistants.

 

 

Every day we use our "Today is..." board to help us learn the days of the week and understand about time - such as days, weeks, months and years. Autumn is a great time to talk about the weather and how it changes. Did you see the pictures up there of our Autumn walk? There were so many colours we named!


Lots of our work this term has been about phonics. We use Jolly Phonics to learn sounds for graphemes.
We then practise our letter formation and handwriting. Here is some of our mark making:

 

 

In Literacy, we have been learning the story of The Three Little Pigs and have enjoyed our own construction area!

We also learnt the story of The Little Red Hen - it's one of our favourites!
We made bread with Mrs Adams just like in the story.

 

 

In Maths, we have been practising counting to ten (and even twenty!) and putting these numbers in order. We have also been hunting different shapes we can see. We're very good at using clever words like "bigger", "smaller", "taller", "shorter", "straight", "curved" and lots lots more to describe 2D and 3D shapes that we see.

In Puffins, we love Expressive Arts and Design! Messy play is lots of fun but also links all of our learning together. We get to play lots of instruments - sometimes LOUDLY and sometimes quietly. We are getting better and louder at singing. Make sure you come and listen to our angel song in the Christmas play!

Throughout the year, links will be added for ways to help your children's learning and you can also see what we have been busy doing in class.

Have fun looking!

 
 

Spring Term 2018

 

This term our topic is 'light and dark'. We enjoyed a light and dark walk around the school looking for light and dark spaces. The children have enjoyed exploring our dark den role-play area outside. 

 

We have been reading the story 'Owl Babies'. The children have enjoyed retelling the story using their own story maps.

 

Please log in to purple mash and type 'owl babies' and the children can draw a picture of the baby owls in their tree.
