'What a Wonderful World' Legacy Week

As part of our Wonderful World Legacy week, the Puffins learnt about different types of renewable energy. We particularly focused on wind energy and the children had a fantastic time making windmills and writing instructions. The Puffins also went on a trip to the woods where they investigated how to make a kite from a plastic bag, sticks and string. The children enthusiastically tested and improved their designs showing many of the schools CIRCUS skills.

KS1 Giant Sing: Barnaby Bear goes into Space

 

Today the Puffins (and their teddy bears) were invited, by the  Hampshire Music Service, to take part in the KS1 Giant Sing at the Anvil in Baskingstoke.  Barnaby Bear took us all on an adventure, in his rocket, to lots of different planets. The children had a brilliant time and had the opportunity to sing with other KS1 children from a variety of schools. Some of the children were particularly interested in how the lights and smoke were controlled and in the different pictures of space that were shown. A fantastic time was had by all the children and even our Smannell and Enham bear 'Crumbs' enjoed the show. 

Parents and Grandparents Tea Party

At our parents and grandparents tea party, both the children and grown-ups had a fantastic afternoon playing with Mr Ablett's steam train track, playing traditional games and eating cake and biscuits. There were lots of games being played by everyone including Twister, Jacks, Ker Plunk and Connect Four and it was lovely to see the children so excited to play them with the grown ups. 

 

 

Puffins' Model Steam Train Surprise

On the day of our parents and grandparents tea party, the children were greeted by a surprise when they walked into the classroom. In the classroom there was a model train set complete with signals, steam trains and carriages. The children were very excited to see and operate a steam train like the train in the story of The Railway Children, which we have been learning to retell. Mr Ablett also very kindly stayed in the classroom for the morning and showed the children the different features of the steam trains, the track and explained  how to use the switches on the track to change the train's route.

Home Learning

The children will be given a home learning grid every half term. They need to try to do as any of the activities as possible to earn points. They can bring them into school as and when they have finished each one or a few at a time. I will also be setting spellings so please could the children bring their home learning folders back on Thursdays so that we can add this work.

 

Reading Challenge

This year Puffin class will be having a reading challenge. For every 10 minutes that the children read for they will move up a rocket. There will be 20 rockets and when the children reach this they will then jump onto the next planet and start again. The children will be rewarded and receive a certificate for every time they make a new jump onto a planet. Any books that the children read at home can be counted towards the reading challenge.
