Puffins Class 2022/23


Welcome to Puffins Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. Both myself, Mr Pearce (Class Teacher), and Mrs Culley (Class Teaching Assistant) are pleased to welcome you to our class page. Please come and talk to us to discuss your children's celebrations, achievements and we are happy to answer any questions that you may have. 


We are looking forward to getting to know each other and having a great year playing, learning and growing together. On this page we will be sharing our learning journey. Throughout the year we will be sharing snapshots of our learning through photographs. This will provide you with a fun way to talk to your child about their learning and share in their experiences.

Pattan’s Pumpkin and More Learning this Half Term

We have continued to learn about our talk4writing text ‘Pattan’s Pumpkin’. We have started to use our phonics to begin to write our own words and phrases. In handwriting we have practiced spirals, and drawn our own snails as we found spirals on a snails shell. We have also enjoyed now reading to each other and reading our key texts ‘Whatever Next’ and ‘Goodnight Moon’ to the whole class.


Start of the Autumn Term 2

We have started lots of exciting learning this half term. Including learning our new talk4writing text ‘Pattan’s Pumkpin’ as well as sharing stories, celebrating Diwali and learning about clay.

Our First Day in Reception

Say hello to all of our Puffins for 22-23. We look forward to an exciting year working together and having an exciting learning adventure. 


Forest School

We had great fun this week exploring our forest school and thinking about seasonal change. We worked together to find things that showed us it is turning into Autumn. We found lots of fallen leaves, acorns, we saw a squirrel collecting nuts and we found a hedgehog house where hedgehogs might start to hibernate. We also went on a nature colour hunt to see all the colours we could find in our natural world.
