Welcome to the Puffin class page!
The chicks have hatched!! This week in Puffins we were lucky enough to have some fluffy visitors 😀
This term in Puffins we will be jetting off to ‘Spectacular Spain’! As geographers we will be exploring different areas of Spain. We will be making comparisons between these areas and what is special about each place. As part of this we will be learning about La Vuelta: what it is, the places it visits and comparing and contrasting the conditions of the different locations.
As writers we will be looking at instructional writing and the features that make an instructional text, such as imperative verbs. We will also look at persuasive writing and the features that we can use in order to persuade a chosen audience. Alongside these, we will continue to work on our grammar.
As mathematicians we will be revisiting our multiplication and fraction skills. Please ensure that your child is practising their multiplication and division facts at home as this knowledge is crucial to aid them in Maths lessons. Regular use of Times Table Rock Stars can help with this!
The children will be taught a spelling rule during an English session on a Tuesday. The following Tuesday, the children will be tested on the spellings before being taught a new spelling rule. Please practice these at home as well as the Year 2 or Year 3/4 spelling words.
Spellings can also be practised using the Spelling Shed app/website.
