Puffins Week 7 10.12.18

Another week in Puffins has come to an end.
We have been very busy this week – we’ve been practising lots for our Christmas play which we had on Thursday afternoon. We dressed up as teddy bears and did a fantastic teddy bear dance. Our friends and family came to watch us too! .
In cooking we made Christmas rice krispie cakes with different types of melted chocolate and then added lots of different Christmas decorations.

We’ve been doing lots of  Christmas Art this week – We decorated our clay pots that we made last week in Christmas colours and glitter!!
We also made Christmas cards and Santa hats.
Looking forward to all of the excitement of the last week of term next week!!

Puffins Week 6

Christmas has arrived in Puffins! We’ve been doing lots of fun things and lots of fantastic learning!

On Monday we made chocolate truffles – it was a very messy job but they came out great. We made a gift box for our truffles during our bucket time session this week and we sent them home to our family and friends to try!
Our bucket time sessions are starting to look very Christmassy. Emma made a Christmas tree out of shaving foam and added Brussel sprouts! Emma also wrapped us up in wrapping paper like presents and we popped out at the end.

In PSHE we have been looking at lights and candles and we made our own Christingles.
We also used clay to make tea light holders which we will be painting next week!
Keep an eye out for what we’re doing next week and remember next week is our Christmas Show!!

We’ve had another busy week in Puffins!
In cooking on Monday we made cheese straws, which were delicious. During group jobs this week, we’ve been practising our fine motor skills colouring different pictures by copying pictures on the plasma.
We had a musical bucket time on Tuesday, listening to noisy toys, making different chimes and playing them to see if they sounded different or the same. We had guitars using paper plates and different coloured stickers to decorate them!
We’ve also made shakers this week with rice, pasta and other materials and tested them to see if they sounded different to our friends shakers.

Fireworks Week

This week in Puffins we’ve been looking at different ways to make fireworks and how to stay safe when out and about on bonfire night. On Monday during cooking we made chocolate bread stick sparklers and we got very messy! On Tuesday we had a firework themed bucket with a lemonade explosion and making our own fireworks with different coloured paints and glitter.

Halloween and teddy bears!

We started the week by making jelly with worms in to eat on Halloween on Wednesday. Our Bucket Time was Halloween themed too with a glittery spiders web and scooping out the pumpkin!

On Wednesday lots of us enjoyed putting on our Halloween costumes and having our spooky jelly snack!

Another exciting day on Thursday with the Teddy Bear’s Picnic! Unfortunately the weather wasn’t as dry as we would have liked but we did get outside earlier in the week to go on an autumn walk and to collect leaves for our teddy crowns and sun catchers. We all made sandwiches as well for the teddy bear’s picnic in the afternoon!

Hope you enjoy the photos!
