Classes >> Puffin Class   


Hello and welcome to Puffin Class!  My name is Mrs Whittaker and I am going to be your teacher.  I am really looking forward to a wonderful year in our classroom! Our teaching assistant will be the lovely Mrs Christodoulou.

In Puffin class I encourage all children to be happy, confident and independent learners.  I like all the children to try their best at ALL times, to be kind, helpful and resilient, and to keep our classroom neat and tidy. I love to read, and I would like all the children in my class to love books and reading as much as I do.

There is a lot to look forward to in Year 4! We have some very exciting topics…to kick-start we are learning about the Ancient Egyptians in our topic, ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’. In the spring term, we then have ‘Born in the USA’. In this topic, we learn all about the United States of America. We will also put on a musical production, which you will perform to the school and your parents and carers at the Church Hall. We will start the summer term learning about our bodies – digestion, sound and teeth - it’s ‘Cool to be Me’. Our last topic is called ‘Invaders and Settlers’, where we learn all about the Vikings and Saxons in England and Europe.

What an exciting year we will have! I can’t wait to start our learning adventure together!
