Home Learning Fun!

Take a look at some of the pictures below which members of Puffin Class have sent in. Children have been doing lots of exciting activities at home, ranging from cooking and crafts to literacy and maths. It is great to see all of the puffins keeping busy. 

Sports Relief

Puffin Class took part in sports relief by joining in with Joe Wicks' video and then we ran a mile around the field. We were feeling rather tired but we carried on as we then worked alongside sandpiper class to complete 2 different obstacle courses in the playground. We were ready for a big drink after all our exercise!

World Book Day

It was great to see all of the Puffins dressed up as their favourite book characters on world book day. Throughout the day we took part in a variety of different activities based on four different books, which included: Giraffes can't dance, Supertato, We're going on a bear hunt and Oi frog. 

Fun in the big playground!

Pancake Day!

In Puffin Class we celebrated pancake day by making our very own pancakes and carefully choosing our own toppings. We also took part in a pairs game and then wrote our own shopping list for the pancake ingredients.
