Persevering Pumas

Welcome to Persevering Pumas! 

Hello Persevering Pumas and Parents/Carers and welcome to our class page! 

Here you will find all of the information and resources required to complete your home home learning and to support your son/daughter with their learning whilst they're at home.


I have made a few changes to the page, which hopefully makes it a little more organised and easier to navigate. To access the learning information and resources for each week, click on the crayon icon for the week we're on. If you're still catching up with a previous week's learning or you'd like to revisit some of the learning, click on the crayon icon for the week you'd like to access. Full explanations have been provided for every learning activity and resource, but if you have any questions at all please email me. 


I am exceptionally proud of every single Puma and their dedication and maturity towards their home learning during this strange time and parents, you're all doing an absolutely fabulous job juggling your work commitments whilst supporting your child to learn, thank you! 


I love to hear about what you've been up to and see photographs of your great work, so please continue to send me a weekly update showing me what you've achieved and work you're proud of. To celebrate everyone's learning together, the photographs I have received and continue to receive will be posted below. 

Stay safe everyone, 

Miss Winkley

Spring 2 - Learning Logs

Over half term, we set the children a piece of learning log homework all about the Amazon Rainforest. We have been absolutely delighted with the hard work and effort that'd been put in to creating these projects and the children have learnt so much about the Amazon Rainforest through their research. All of the children have been given the opportunity to share their work and we have seen some fabulous artwork, fact files, iMovies, games, DT work and even some delicious biscuits!

Spring 2 - Samba Drumming

Spring 1 - Headingley Water Treatment Works 

As part of our 'Water Cycle' science week topic, we visited Headingley Water Treatment works. We learnt all about where our water comes from, how it is collected, how it is cleaned and purified and how it travels to our homes so that we can drink it. We then used our learning in our wonderful writing!

Autumn 2 - Science Week 

As part of our science week, we participated in a workshop demonstrating our digestive system from Eureka.
