Week Beginning 10th September

This has been our first full week in Puffin Class and by Friday we were very tired!
We have been busy learning all about growing this week and started by reading Jack and the Beanstalk.  We've planted our beans to grow our own beanstalks and we think some of them might grow all the way up to the sky - maybe there will be a giant's castle at the top? 
Outside we've been using the large construction blocks to build castles and beanstalks. We've been counting the number of blocks we've used and matching these to numbers. 
On Wednesday morning we worked with 2 artists, Liz and Justine, to start designing and making a cross for our school.  We went on a lovely walk and found lots of beautiful items such as flowers and berries.  We enjoyed painting with berries and mud in the afternoon. 
Thursday is swimming day and we enjoyed our first lesson of the year.  
We've had a busy and exciting week and can't wait for next week.
