Creative Learning Without Limits

Puffins

Mrs McClure would like to welcome you all to Puffins class.

Dear Parents/Carers 

Welcome back to the Autumn term at Pulham Primary! It has been a strange year so far and I am pretty sure that things will not be back to normal for some time but we will try our very best to make everyone feel safe and happy in Puffins class. I understand that you may have questions and/or concerns so please don’t be afraid to ask. It’s important that everyone is comfortable with all the arrangements.  

We will be doing PE on Tuesday mornings so please can your child come to school in their PE kit with school shoes in a bag in case trainers get muddy. It is fine for the children to wear tracksuits, leggings etc to keep themselves warmPlease make sure hair is tied back. 

In maths we will be starting with Place Value and making sure that any gaps are filled before moving the children on. Our early starting time will really help giving us more opportunities for catch-up.  

We will be studying the Mayans until Christmas and this will be included in English, Art, DT and topic. This will also include exploring Mexico and learning Spanish!  

Our class read is Middleworld, which is a story set in America and tells the story of Max and his race against time to save his Mayan archaeologist parents.  

We will be starting a new approach to writing this term which is based on the Write Stuff by Jane Considine. The children have really enjoyed the work we have done so far with the keyworker children and the online work which was provided during lockdown. 

Science will be Earth and Space which also ties in with the Mayans and their enthusiasm for all things astrological! 

We will be studying Hinduism during RE which will involve lots of discussion and comparisons with other religions. 

I would just like to say how well the children have settled in this week and have really been brilliant at picking up where they left off! 

As always, if you have any questions or concerns you can email me at vmcclure@pulham.norfolk.sch.uk. 

Kind regards
