Termly Focus - Spring Term 2022

charlottedowson on: Puffin Termly Focus

In the Puffins this term we are focusing on our topic of Growing and Changing - Farm to Fork. We are going to be working through the series of Supertato stories which the children are currently really enjoying. We will be partaking in a number of Supertato related activities and discovering what Mr Evil Pea will get up to next. 
As well as looking at the Supertato stories we will also be looking at the life cycles of plants and learning all about what plants need to help them grow and be healthy. We will also look at the process of growing food and eating it. With the aim of doing this ourselves. 
We will continue as always with our Jolly Phonics sessions, reading groups and writing work on a very regular basis. 
Our focus for Thinking Skills this term will be shapes and patterns. We will look at learning about shapes, both 2D and 3D, as well as following recurring patterns. 
All in all the signs are all pointing towards a very busy and productive term in the Puffins class. We have made a really promising start so far.

Termly Focus - Spring Term 2021

charlottedowson on: Puffin Termly Focus

In Puffins this term we are looking at weather and seasons. We will be exploring how the weather changes throughout the year and how this affects each of the seasons. We are focusing on a different weather type each week and basing our work around these. We're finding many different ways to integrate sensory exploration based on the different weather types which the children are thoroughly enjoying and gaining from. 
We will also be looking at various celebrations from around the world such as Burns night, Chinese New Year and the Holi Festival. It's looking like another great term in Puffin class.

Termly Focus - Autumn Term 2020

charlottedowson on: Puffin Termly Focus

Coming towards the end of our first full week back after summer holidays we are very pleased with how every one of the Pufflings have settled into class and into new routines. We spent the majority of last week getting back into routines, getting to know each other, having lots of fun and singing lots of songs. 
This week we have begun work on our half termly topic which is Minibeasts. This week our focus has been all about spiders. We have learnt lots of spidery facts (did you know most spiders have 4 sets of eyes (8 in total)?). We have done lots of work about spiders, as well as making amazing spiders webs. 
We will focus on a different minibeast each week until October half term.
We hope you are all keeping well.

Puffin Termly Focus - Spring 2020

Happy New Year to you all,
Everyone in Puffins have had a lovely half term break and have come back full of energy, ready for the new Spring term. Our school topic this term is 'Tell me a story' and in Puffins we are using the stories of Julia Donaldson as our main source of inspiration, starting with The Gruffalo. The children are thoroughly enjoying the The Gruffalo and will move onto The Gruffalo's Child next week. We have around 8 stories planned for the term so we're sure to have an exciting term ahead. 
We would like to thank you all for your support during the Autumn term and look forward to this continuing this term.
