Year 2 Puffins Days Bridge and Patrixbourne CEP School

Year 2 have been having a great time learning about puffins in terms 5 and 6. This formed part of our literacy and we wrote non chronological reports and explanation texts all about Puffin Migration. We are now puffin experts! We read the daily digest every day and also watch the live cam. We also know quite a lot about other sea birds.

We held 2 activity days where we:

  • Made clay puffins and painted them
  • Dressed a puffin
  • Painted a tile with acrylic paints
  • Made a puffin maths game for Year 1
  • Puffin masks

We also have displays in our classrooms all about puffins. We use these to help us with our writing. We painted puffins using paint and flour. The flour gave our paintings texture. They are very colourful and fun!

Mrs Saint and Mrs Cork drew a map on the playground with chalk. We wore our puffin masks and migrated from Scotland to Burhou. This really helped us understand migration. We also acted out a text map all about migration.
