Why we wash our hands

Today in Puffin Class we have thought about why we wash our hands. We thought of reasons why we need to wash our hands.


  1. We might get germs.
  2. So that we don’t get germs inside our tummies.
  3. To keep poorly people safe.
  4. To keep our food clean.
  5. To wash away the dirt when we have been playing outside.

Using our senses

Today we have discovered that we have 5 senses. We used our sense of smell to find out what was on the stinky socks.

Sock number 1 – We thought that sock number 1 had a very spicy smell. It made our noses twitch!

Sock number 2 – We thought that sock number 2 had a very sweet smell like chocolate.

Sock number 3 – We thought that sock number 3 was also very sweet. We thought it had a flowery smell.

Sock number 4 – We thought that sock number 4 had a very strange smell. It was not very nice and it made us cover our noses.





Our brilliant bones

Today we have watched a clip all about our brilliant bones.


We thought about how to keep our bones and bodies healthy.

Sophia – Eat fruit.

Nevaeh – Eat healthy foods.

Elsie – Do a lot of exercise.

Amelia – Run really fast.

Esther – Drink lots of water.

Freddie – Do exercise, running and jumping.

Sam – Eat carrots and sometimes chips.

Thomas – Drink water.

Dylan – Drink milk to make your bones strong.

Cruz – Drink orange juice.

Skye – Drink milk.

We also thought that when we do excerise we need to look after our bodies and keep them safe.

Aiden – You must wear a helmet.

What types of things do you do to keep your bones and bodies healthy?


What makes a good teacher?

During our Literacy session we discussed what we thought makes a good teacher. We decided to create our own list for our classroom.

The adults in Puffin Class promise to;

  • Always be kind and caring
  • Have fun
  • Be smiley and play games
  • Look after us and keep us safe.

How would you describe your perfect teacher?
