Monday 29th - Friday 1st February

This week we have been watching and writing weather reports in preparation for performing in front of the class. The children have enjoyed forecasting the weather using symbols on a map.

In maths the children have been counting in twos, sorting odd and even numbers and putting numbers into two different groups e.g more than 10 and less than 10.

We have also explored the concept of man made and natural materials in science.

Thank you to those who could join our number afternoon we had lots of fun playing a variety of games.




Monday 22nd - Friday 26th January


This week the children have enjoyed finding and recording facts about the weather. They then used these facts to create a fact file about their chosen weather.


The children have also been weighing using nonstandard units of measurement to compare the weight of a variety of objects. They have also learnt to tell o'clock, half past and quarter to times.


We have also started our history topic on homes in the past, which involved looking at old house objects and sorting different types of houses.





Monday 15th - Friday 19th January


This week we have carried out a number of science experiments and D & T activities based on the weather. For example, we have made rain gauges, weather vanes and created a rainstorm in a jar.


In English the children have continued to be little scientists as they've written evaluations of their experiments.


Pufferfish have also been learning the number bonds to 10 and doubling and halving numbers, which they then used to solve 3 number calculations e.g 9+1+8=18.





Monday 8th January - Friday 12th January 2018


Our first full week back has been a busy one. The children have been introduced to our new topic which will focus on the weather.


In English we explored and composed poems about different weather types using nouns, adjectives and verbs. Here's a video of a group of children exploring weather poetry through drama.

Thursday 4th - Friday 5th January 2018


Our first two days back from the Christmas holiday have focus on 'learning to learning.' We have learnt about the Fixed mindset versus the Growth mindset and written a New Year's Resolution. The children have been taught to have a positive mindset to help them become independent learner.





Monday 18th - Wednesday 20th December


Pufferfish have enjoyed the Christmas celebrations this week. Here's a few pictures of the fun and madness.





Monday 4th - Friday 8th December


Pufferfish have had a lovely week! Thank you so much for joining us for decoration morning. I hope you weren't too traumatised by the glitter and glue.


We have practised our nativity singing and can't wait to see you all next week for the big performance. Here's a sneak peek of our dress rehearsal.







Monday 20th - Friday 24th November


Pufferfish have been finding 1 more and 1 less of a number, identifying missing numbers and investigating all the ways of make 10 or 20.



We also transformed the class into a 'Toy Museum' to help us label, describe and comparing old and new toys. It was an exciting experience that we all enjoyed.


Thank you to all the parents that send in toys.








Monday 6th November – Friday 10th November 2017


This week we have read the story book "Where's my Teddy?" and wrote about how we would feel if we lost something important to us.


In maths we have learnt how to write number sentences to double a number, looked at odd and even numbers and order the days and months.


Pufferfish have also started their ASSA PE sessions which they thoroughly enjoyed.





Monday 16th October - Friday 20th October


Pufferfish enjoyed an autumn walk to the Library Gardens this week. We found lots of Autumn signs which we used to create a hedgehog collage. A big thank you to all the parents who helped us with our autumn hunt.





Monday 9th – Friday 13th October 2017


Wow! It’s been a very busy week! We’ve had lots of interesting visitors including an occupational therapist, speech therapist, physiotherapist and the police. A big thank you to our visitor we thoroughly enjoyed learning about your jobs and how you help us.




Monday 2nd October – Friday 6th October 2017



Pufferfish have also investigated the difference between the human and animal body and continue to enjoy gymnastics.











Monday 11th September – Friday 15th September 2017


This week we have introduced the children to the topic people who help us. The class activities and literacy have been focused on this topic giving the children the opportunity to write captions about Mr Robbins and taken on the role of a teacher.


We have also enjoyed counting and ordering numbers using a wide range of equipment including multi-link and Numicon.


Here's a snap show of our busy week.




Monday 4th September – Friday 8th September 2017


Welcome back!

It has been a wonderful but very busy first week back. Here’s a snap shot of our week.


We learnt about our school values and make some class rule. Puffer Fish also completed some team activities which they did extremely well.



We’ve also been busy getting to know each other and our new routines. In class we have done some phonics, maths and literacy.



On Thursday 7th September as a whole class we looked at some self-portrait art. We then started creating our own which we will continue next week.




Finally on Friday 8th September we had our first gymnatics lesson. It was a lot of fun and we are looking forward to next week.



Have a lovely weekend!
