Welcome to Puffin Class! Puffins is taught by Mrs Salmon and Mr Pimm with help from Mrs Redding and Mrs Panzeri.
Terms 3 & 4
Our class topic for term 4 revolved around ‘Volcanoes and mountains’. We explored how volcanoes and mountains are formed, how they are structured, the ring of fire and looked closely at famous mountains and volcanoes around the world. We managed to link some of our literacy work with our topic too, through the text ‘Escape From Pompeii’, which ended by writing a recount of the dramatic events. In computing, Puffin Class created PowerPoint presentations helping children to stay safe online, using various skills such as creating and adding transitions and animations and creating and editing text boxes. During term 4, there was a special week revolving around science, called Science week. These five days included extracting DNA from a strawberry, using microscopes, watching a mass spectrometer measure the gases in the air and a science fair that occupied the entire sports hall!
