Welcome to Puffins!




Mrs Szypa, Mrs Tabner, Mrs Valentine and Mrs Conway


We hope you are looking forward to starting school

as much as we are!

In Puffins we explore and learn through play!



Autumn Term 1 - All About Me

This term, the children will be learning about themselves and their families, the similarities and differences between them. They will be enjoying being part of and understanding the importance of our community, school, family and friends in our lives.



In Literacy, we will be learning reading skills: reading finger and tracking text, describing and talking about pictures, making predictions. We will be practising mark making using different tools, name writing, reinforcing correct pencil grip. We will start learning sounds and blending them together.



This half term, we will be looking at and exploring numbers in the environment, recognising numbers of personal significance, exploring quantities and counting irregular arrangements of objects.

We will learn positional language to talk about size and position.
