Welcome to Puffins Class!

Mrs Terry.


Welcome to Puffins, taught by Mrs Terry and supported by Mrs Anjos. We’ve had a brilliant year so far and loved our Viking topic last term. There are lots of more exciting things to come this term though, including our residential in June and a visit to Dorchester Museum to learn about the Romans.

This term our enquiry question will be ‘What have the Romans done for us?’ so we’ll be learning as much as we can about them throughout the second half term, finishing with our visit to the museum in Dorchester and a real Roman Town House!

In English we’ll be starting with the story ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’ by Joe Todd-Stanton and we’ll use this to inspire our own adventure stories. We’ll also read ‘A Roman Rescue’ by K.A. Gerrard which will tie in with our Roman topic and give us lots more inspiration for our writing. By the end of the term, we’ll have gathered lots of information about the Romans in preparation for some brilliant information texts telling you everything you need to know about the Romans.

In Mathematics, we’ll be working on decimals, money, time, statistics and shape. We’ll also be continuing to develop our times tables knowledge.

In Science, we’ll be learning about living things and their habitats following on from our unit on animals. We’ll also look at the water cycle and states of matter where we’ll find lots of interesting investigations to share with you. History will be linked to our enquiry question, so we’ll be learning about the Romans. In geography, we’ll be learning about rivers which will link nicely to the water cycle and we’ll tie in our Manor Court 48 objective too which will be to take part in an eco-project.

Mr Jackson will be continuing to teach PE and we’ll have sports day to look forward to. Mrs Morton will continue teaching art, this time looking at environmental and recycled art.
