Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

When baby Puffins meet older Puffins...

This week we have been learning about the story 'Puffin Peter' and we have been learning about the life-cycle of a Puffin. Can you believe there is a class in our school which is also called Puffins!

In our lovely literacy lessons we have learnt the main stages of a Puffins life and as a class we ordered the life-cycle of a Puffin using picture cards. We have learnt there are 4 key stages in this cycle: 1) egg, 2) hatching, 3) chick and 4) adult. We used our magic fingers to count to 4 and back to 1.

We were so excited about the new facts we have learnt: a Puffins beak glows in the dark, a Puffin can hold up to 10 fish in its mouth and there are 3 different types of Puffins that we wanted to share these with the children in Puffins class (one of our year 5 classes).

We visited Puffins class and shared our exciting new facts about Puffins. The children in Puffins also shared some new facts with us too: a puffins beak is grey in the winter and orange in spring.

Gorgeous Goldcrests sharing their Puffin masks and life-cycle of a Puffin with Puffins class!

We love sharing our learning with all of the children and staff we cannot wait to share more facts with them all!
