Please ensure that your child's work is returned to school by Wednesday so that it can be marked and made ready for the next week's homework.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Science of Materials.
In Science, Puffin Class have been looking at different materials and thinking about which material would be the best for a particular application.
We searched the playground for as many materials we could find: bricks, tiles, wood, slate, tarmac, stone, plastic, metal.
Next we thought about the uses of all these different materials; we compared the different materials and found that they have many uses. Some materials could be squashed, bent, twisted or stretched, others could not.
We designed our own coffee cup and found out all about recycling and why it is important.
Finally we learned about John MacAdam the inventor of the Tarmac used on our playground and roads.
We have been looking at the amazing Pop Art of Roy Lichtenstein, he liked to use bright primary colours to create big, bold paintings.
Black History Month
During Black History Month we have been studying the life and work of Mary Seacole; a Jamaican born nurse who nursed the soldiers during the Crimean War. Mary's wish was to work with and alongside Florence Nightingale, unfortunately the racial prejudice of the time meant she was prevented from doing this. Mary was not put off easily: she funded her own passage to Crimea, where she set up her 'British Hotel'; a hospital for the soldiers injured at the battle front.
Star Of The Week
Congratulations to our Stars of the Week.
The Star Of The Week is awarded to the person who has been kind, helpful and dedicated throughout the week.
Each Star of the Week chooses a prize from Ms. Middleton's Special Prize Box.
Well done to everyone who has been awarded Dojos.
Dojos are awarded to people who have worked hard throughout week, showed acts of kindness, been helpful, listened to instructions and have been dedicated to their work.
Everyone receives many Dojos through the week and the person with the most Dojos at the end of the week chooses a prize from Ms. Middleton's Special Prize Box.
Every week Puffin class draw a name out of our V.I.P. box.
That tells us who is our Very Important Person of the week.
Our V.I.P. is responsible for many roles throughout the week, such as: being Ms. Middleton's helper; lighting the Collective Worship candle; collecting the dinner register from the office; choosing their own helpers to give out work books and many other special tasks that arise during the week.
We have been planning another amazing 'Aisha and the Aliens'
story. Can you make up your own story using these picture prompts?
Celebrate Harvest Festival with us.
We have used our acrostic harvest themed poem to practice our handwriting, while thinking about how wonderful our world is at this time of year.
Working as a team; Puffin Class have written an acrostic poem using our knowledge of alliteration to celebrate this year's harvest.
This week, Puffin Class have been painting portraits in the style of Pablo Picasso.
Can you see their likeness?
