Spring 2 Topic Information

Baytree Owl and Wildlife Centre

We’ve had an amazing day and Baytree Owl & Wildlife centre today! The children were fantastic - they were so well-behaved that we were allowed to stroke the 3 week old baby owl! Here are some of our best bits from our visit:

We found the noise this bird made hilarious! Can anybody remember why it makes this noise?

Well-being week

We have been having lots of fun this week whilst thinking about keeping our mind and body healthy. Here are a few pictures of our work.

Raising Money

This week we have raised money for Young Minds, a charity that provides young people with a lifeline when faced with mental health challenges.

We hosted a bake sale - our children were very busy baking all weekend! Thank you to our Puffins school councillors Tom and Bella for helping with the cake stall. We also wore yellow for mental health.

As a school, we raised £125.10 this week and we are extremely proud of all of our children for their work this week. Thank you to all that donated and helped us to raise such a fantastic amount.

Term 2

This term we have been very busy in Puffins!

We started the year off learning all about volcanoes:

We’ve enjoyed getting a little messy in our phonics sessions…

We choreographed our own Haka routines and then performed them to each other – they were certainly very intimidating!

Forces and levers are all around us!

We absolutely loved learning how to build, program and customise our own robot cars! Some of us even tested our cars at the end in a race.

During Anit-Bullying Week we made our own Acts of Kindness cards and talked about how we could be kind to each other in school:

A well-deserved yoga brain break after our reading and maths quiz:
