Well, the Puffins have had a very productive and busy second week back in school. It has involved dioramas, long division and planting.
In out English lessons this week we continued to develop the skills to create a Story from another Culture. We have developed our ability to create expanded noun phrases and also practised our use of inverted commas.
Maths involved us finishing our unit on Multiplication and Division. We have practised the method of long division, the children have worked very hard to understand this method. Well done Puffins.
In Science this week we learnt all about the different parts of the plant, what their uses are and how a plant grows.
We have carried on our brand new unit in Geography, ‘Brazil: Heaven or Hell’. This week we learnt all about the different layers of the Amazon Rainforest and which animals live in which layer. The children have begun to create a diorama of a section of the rainforest using the shoe boxes which they brought in. I’m sure you will be just as impressed with their efforts as I have been. The creativity of my class always impresses me.
Thank you for your payment of the deposits for our Whitemoor Lakes residential trip. We are really looking forward to taking the Year 5's on whar I'm sure will be an action packed few days!
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
The Puffins Team
