People who help us

This half term our engaging topic has been 'People Who Help Us'. Through this topic, we have:

- Been detectives to investigate a crime scene in our classroom! Using magnifying glasses we searched for clues like footprints, we wore our police hats, and we drove around in our police car bikes. 

- Visited the Puffin Opticians, where we got some new glasses.

- Drawn portraits of who we'd like to be when we grow up. There were some fabulous ideas, such as being a daddy, a teacher in our reception class, an artist, a vet to look after animals, and a train driver!

- Treated patients in the Puffin Class Hospital, using stethoscopes and bandages. The children practiced their writing to write prescriptions, and loved dressing up in the doctors uniforms.

- Made our own police badges.

- Learnt all about George Stephenson, the famous engineer who built the first locomotive a long, long time ago.

- Caught the train to go on a journey. Our train was made collaboratively by the children, they showed lots of creativity and team working skills!



Well done Puffins for a super start to the spring term. We hope you all have a lovely break this February half term, and we look forward to seeing you again soon! Please find in your children's book bags some phonics books/sheets that will have been sent out this week, so that the children will be able to wow you with their reading over the holiday.
