Welcome to Pufferfish Class!
Monday 17th September – Friday 21st September 2018
This week we have continued with our `People who help us’ topic. The children have thought carefully about the equipment firemen need and recorded their ideas in a list. We have also discussed and explored how to use a dictionary to find words and meanings.
In Maths the children have been counting to 100, counting on from 5 and exploring the number bonds to 5 and 10.
Puffer Fish have also enjoyed their first science lesson which focused on labelling the body parts.
Home learning – To continue the `People who help us’ activities and complete the long ladder handwriting sheet.
Monday 10th – Friday 14th September 2018
This week we have introduced the topic `People who help us’. The children have discussed the roles of each person. The children have written captions about Mr Robbins our caretaker and how he helps people around the school. In Mathematics they have been counting, ordering and comparing numbers.
Following our curriculum meeting you might want to see our website where you will find addition, subtraction, multiplication and division strategies under about us/school polices. You will also find KS1 mathematical skills which will give you an insight to what the children will be covering. We are also looking into different ways to help you support your child in Mathematics.

Thursday 6th – Friday 7th September 2018
It has been a short but exciting first week back. Puffer Fish are beginning to settle in and learn the new routines. We have discussed the school values; the growth mind set and made some class rules as part of our ‘Learning to Learn’ week.
The children have also revised some of the Jolly Phonics sounds and high frequency words. In mathematics we have been counting and ordering numbers to 20.
On Friday, some of the children got an opportunity to share their homework with the class. We will continue to this next week as it’s lovely to hear what they have been up to during their six weeks holiday.
Looking forward to working with my little Puffer Fish next week.
Have a fantastic weekend!
