Another jam-packed week in the Puffins class. We have begun delving into the world of Geology, we have carried on thinking about the Physical and Human Geography if Brazil and we have thought about finding fractions of amounts. We have definitely been engaging our brains this week.
In English this week we have begun our brand new unit of Instructions. We have analysed our model text which detailed how to catch a Cacus, a mythical creature. We have thought about the features of this type of text, created our own pictures of the Cacus from description in the text and written instructions that Mrs Karamucki has had to follow. This taught us the importance of making sure are instructions are detailed but clear.
Within Maths this week, we have looked at multiplying fractions, thinking about the fact that it is only the numerator that changes. We have also begun finding out how to find the fraction of a number. Although we found this tricky at first, all the Puffins worked very hard to understand this new concept.
We began our new Science topic this week ‘Rocks’. Our first lesson involved learning about the different properties of different classes of Rocks. We looked at a variety of different rocks and thought about how the type of rock it was affected its properties. I’m hoping as the topic goes on we will be creating some budding Geologists! My original degree!
Next week is Science week. The theme this year is Growth. We are planning some fun activities which we hope the children will enjoy and will inspire the inner Scientist in them.
We hope you have a lovely weekend,
The Puffins Team.
