Welcome to the Puffin class page!
We hope you had a great summer holiday and are refreshed and ready for a fantastic year as Year 2 and 3 😀
As part of our first topic this year, KAPOW!, we will all become superheroes! As designers will be designing, making and then evaluating our very own superhero capes. As part of this, we will be learning different sewing skills and joining techniques. Look out for photos of our cape making and BASH! fashion show later in the term.
As writers we will be developing our use of grammar. We will work on the skills required for our year group including commas in a list and apostrophes for possession. Alongside this, we will be looking at character descriptions, creating our own superheroes and using our senses to describe!
Our science topic for term 1 will be ‘Animals including humans’. As scientists we will be investigating what we need in order to keep the human body strong and healthy. In particular, we will be developing specialised knowledge, skills and understanding in nutrition, muscles, bones and joints. We will even become personal trainers and conduct our own research project in order to answer our clients’ questions and explain what makes a healthy life style.
This term PE will be on Mondays and Wednesdays. We will be having ‘Up and Under’ PE sessions with Mr Murphy in order to develop our tag rugby skills. Alongside this we will also be having weekly FUNs PE lessons to practice our agility, balance and coordination.
We can’t wait to get started!!
