Learning in the Penguin Class
Each week, on Class Dojo you will receive information explaining what the children will be learning in Phonics and Mathematics, as well as any specific experiences they may have during the adult led teaching sessions. There will also be information on how you could support your child at home, with their learning.
At the end of each week, the children will bring home a copy of sounds and words they have learned that week, so you may use them at home to practise.
Once the children are ready, they will bring home a reading scheme book to read with you each day - "When we practise we get better and better and better." In addition to this, your child will bring home a 'choice' book, which they have chosen from a selection of picture story books. This is for you to read and share with them.
The children will do PE each Wednesday and Friday. They will need a PE kit in school each week.
We make use of our outside area throughout the year, so please ensure your child has appropriate clothing to suit the weather, ie. sun hat, waterproof coat, hat/scarf/gloves and a pair of welly boots that can stay in school.
For any queries regarding the Penguin Class please contact Mrs Tod.
Roald Dahl themed World Book Day.
The children enjoyed sharing their Story Spoons with each other. They explained which character they had created and were able to tell us the story it came from.
We read Roald Dahl's The Enormous Crocodile - the children were captivated by the story and characters and enjoyed making predictions of what might happen next. Then, showing their creative skills, they painted, drew and crafted some of the characters from the story.
We had a great day!
