Penguin Found


The children arrived at school on Monday to find a mystery box. After discussing what it could be, why it could have holes, they decided to open it and found a lonely penguin. We made a list of questions they needed to know the answers to in order to look after the penguin: where does it live, what do penguins eat, where is its mummy and daddy?  


We made found posters to let everyone know what we had found, just in case someone was looking for 'Pip' as we have decided to call him.  


Over the week we have read Lost and Found and discovered penguins come from the South Pole. The children have used maps and globes to locate the South Pole. We have written lists of things to pack with children suggesting items like soup to keep us warm, pens and paper to keep us busy and ice skates to help us move around when we get there. We made boats at forest school and have thought about what we'd do if a penguin arrived at our front door.


I'm so proud of the children's work and effort this week. They have really been inspired to have a go, use their phonics and persevere.

We returned from the Christmas holidays to discover a winter wonderland in our classroom. Elsa later visited and froze lots of characters in ice. We tried to think of ways to protect ourselves in case she returned. Some children made shields while others decided to make Elsa masks to make her think there was more than one Elsa. Great thinking reception!

First Day September 2019


Wow! What a fantastic first day we have all had!  They were all so grown up saying goodbye to Mummy's and Daddy's and all got stuck in with the different activities. If you can't see your child in the photos below, don't panic. It is probably just because I haven't yet received photographic consent. Once I have this, I will add further photos.
