Puffins Class 2021/22

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.


This week we have had great fun reading the story “Mr Wolf’s Pancakes”. We read the story during our Literacy lesson and then designed our own pancakes, wrote our own lists of the ingredients we need and then made our own pancakes from scratch. Here are some photos of some of us eating our pancakes with jam or fruit.


This week we have been learning all about one more and one less and finding one more and less to numbers up to 10. We have played lots of games with our friends and used lots of resources to practice this.


This week we have started to plant lots of seeds in preparation to plant up our vegetable patch and gardens in our outside area. We have planted: carrots, peas, watermelon, courgette, peppers, cabbage, sunflowers and corn on the cob. We look forward to these growing and being able to try some of our own grown produce.


Look at all our shapes and balances we have been learning to do in PE during our gymnastics unit of work. We have practiced the shapes in isolation, now we are applying these to different pieces of apparatus including the wall bars, ropes and benches. 


Look at all of our super investigation work in Maths this week to try and find and make other square numbers. Our Numberblocks helped our find 4 and 9 but lots of us managed to find even bigger square numbers.

Look at all of our super measuring this week. We have been learning how to measure different sized objects and have had lots of opportunities to explore this both inside and outside.


We had great fun using paper mache to design and make our own bowl for baby bear. After they dried we painted them with our own designs.



This week we have been learning all about Little Red Riding Hood during our traditional tales topic. Look at our wolf traps we made to help catch the wolf. We have also been drawing and writing our own story maps to sequence and retell the story.


We had brilliant fun at our Christmas dinner meal and also our party on the last day of the term. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

In Maths we have been learning all about the number 1. We have been using the Numberblocks too, to show our teachers what we already know about numbers to 5 and how to order them.

Welcome to our first week in Reception for 2021-2022
