Transforming lives by living and learning together in God's love

Puffins - Reception

Ahoy there! Look at all your learning about pirates!

Ahoy me hearties!

We hope you all had an amazing half term break, especially with the beautiful sunshine we have been having! Welcome to a new half term, we are going to have lots of fun with our new theme, 'In a land far far away...'. 

 

You may have guessed from our greeting that this week, we will be thinking all about pirates! We have planned lots of activities which you might like to try, including treasure hunts, making maps and building a pirate ship! Perhaps you can dress up as a pirate one day too? What would your pirate name be, I wonder? Please upload your photos to Tapestry, we are missing you all lots and it is a lovely way to keep in touch!

 

Please also keep a lookout on this class page each day, as Mrs Mayhew will be uploading a daily video lesson. This will mean that you are able to do some phonics and maths learning together! 

 

Have a great week Puffins! Or should we say Pirates?!

It is the end of the week, thank you for all your lovely photographs and learning you have done about farm animals!

Howdy Farmer Puffins!

 

Well done for another fantastic week of learning, You have done so much learning about farming and farm animals, we hope you have enjoyed it! 

 

Next week, it is half term and so you will be having a well deserved rest from your home learning. There will be no official learning activities for you to complete, so just have lots of fun and enjoy the lovely weather if you can! You will see that we have put together some activities based on the story of 'Dear Zoo'. These are just for fun and are completely optional - they are just there in case you are looking for some ideas of things to do over the half term break. 

 

Thank you so much to parents and carers for your continued support. Have a wonderful half term everyone!

 

Take care, Mrs Gibbs and Mrs Maudsley

Puffin's Photo Board

Thank you for posting photos of your learning and activities you are doing at home on Tapestry, we love looking at them! We thought it would be nice for you to share with your friends some of the lovely activities you have been doing at home too so we have set up an email for you to send your photos to and then we can put them up on Puffin Class photo board for everyone to see!

 

  • You can send in one photo each week for us to display on this web page.
  • The photo should show what you have been up to with your Home Learning.
  • If you are in the photo, make sure it doesn't show your name.
  • If you are not in the photo, just put your first name.
  • All photos should be landscape.
  • New photos will be uploaded ready for Friday each week.

 

Send your photo to:

Reading

Have you checked out Oxford Owl for reading books? There are some fantastic reading books for you to share with each other.  Our Class login details are puffinclassstm and the password is slug

 

                                

 

There is also another website you can access for fun games which allows your child to practise phonics and reading. It is called Teach Your Monster To Read and is free to use on computers (there is a charge to use on other devices such as iPads). It follows Letter and Sounds which is how phonics has been taught, alongside RWI, in Puffins Class.

 

                    

 

Have fun reading together!

TAPESTRY

 

Hello everyone! It has been wonderful looking at all your learning about bikes (and so much more) you have been doing at home this week! Please don't forget to upload any photographs of yourselves on to Tapestry - we love seeing them and it is such a great way to keep in touch with you! Here is a photo of Mrs Gibbs on her way for a bike ride!

 

 

If you are unable to access Tapestry, please email the school on admin@stmargaretsipswich.org and we will try to sort that for you.

 

Take care of yourselves and remember to keep in touch!

 

Mrs Maudsley, Mrs Gibbs and Mrs Mayhew
