Welcome to Puffins!
This term in Puffins we will be studying Llandudno and making comparisons between this location and Chippenham. We will also develop our knowledge of maps and use what we learn to create a 3D map of a chosen location.
As writers we will be using what we find out about LLandudno to create our own fact files. We will also be studying persuasive writing, creating our own leaflets about Llandudno. We will also be writing postcards and letters imagining that we are away from home. This will involve us in studying different styles of writing, different tenses and writing in the first and third person.
As mathematicians we will be moving onto division and fractions. Please continue to support this by practicing your child’s times table target each week! 🙂
If you would like to find out more take a look at our curriculum map!
Homework: In Puffins, homework is handed out on a Wednesday and is collected on a Monday. Alongside this we will have weekly spellings and times tables targets to practice. Please encourage your child to practice these at home.
Spellings can also be practiced using the Spelling Shed app/website. https://www.spellingshed.com/
Times tables can be practiced using times tables rock stars! https://ttrockstars.com/login
