Welcome to the spring term of Puffin Class! 


I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year with your families. We have had a fantastic start to the Spring Term and Puffin class have been super excited to learn together. 


This term we will continue to work with Fred frog during our Read, Write, Inc phonics sessions. We will consolidate our previous sounds and begin to learn new sounds. This will enable to build fluency when reading and understanding of texts. As well as supporting us with our writing. 


We have started the new year reading the books Stuck. Puffin class have enjoyed exploring the images and finding out all of them items that have been thrown into the tree.


As mathematicians we will be focusing on multiplication and division exploring new vocabulary and new ways of working out our problems.


As historians we are looking into our local history.  We will look into primary and secondary sources and how our local area has changed over time. 


As scientists we will be exploring the uses of everyday materials. Exploring the properties of materials and what jobs certain materials are just right for. 


During RE, Puffins are learning about books and how valuable the bible is when it comes to finding out all about the lives of Jesus and his disciples. 


As artists we will be looking at artists such as Pablo Picasso and Emily Howarth-Booth and how they use colour and tone in their art to create some wonderful pieces..  


We are so excited to share our learning with the rest of the school and to our families and friends as we enjoy our year as Puffins.
