Welcome to Puffins!
We hope that you all had a lovely half term and are feeling refreshed, ready for a busy term!
This term in Puffins we will become designers as we design, create and evaluate our own marvellous medicines! We will be researching where different ingredients come from before doing some market research into which ingredients are the most popular. Later on in the term we will use this date to help us to design and make our own healthy smoothies.
As writers we will begin by looking at Roald Dahl’s ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We have already written some fantastic character descriptions of George’s horrible Grandma and will continue to work through the book this term. We will also be writing our own recipes to go with our smoothies. This will include learning how to use imperative verbs, adverbs of time and commas in a list.
As mathematicians we will start to look at written addition and subtraction. We will be building on what we learnt about place value in term 1 to accurately add using hundreds, tens and ones.
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
