Bedtime for Monsters!
In our Literacy we have been reading a story called Bedtime for Monsters and this week we have made our very own monster pet! The children were really creative and the resulting monsters look fantastic. Well done Penguins.
Odd Socks day 2019!
As part of Anti-Bullying Week the pupil council decided we would hold an 'odd socks' day to remind everyone that each person is unique and special, and that we show kindness to everyone even if they are different to us.
Take a look at the anti-bullying website, as well as childline, for more information and advice as to where you can get help if you are experiencing bullying:
Show Racism the Red Card
The pupil council decided to organise this event to raise awareness for this charity https://www.theredcard.org/ourstory
The children wore red clothes and accessories and we learnt about how to combat racism and promote an inclusive community.
Golden Time: Each week the Penguins work hard to follow our Golden Rules to earn their Golden Time. We are pleased to report that all of the Penguins have been enjoying Golden Time, and we are really grateful to the PTA who have given us funds in the past towards the cost of purchasing new toys for the children.
World Book Day 2019
The children thoroughly enjoyed celebrating World Book Day! Their costumes were fantastic and it was great to find out about different books and to share our favourites.
Many of the children attend the 'Big Booky Brekkie' run by our PTA and took part in the book swap shop.
The Penguins did a shared reading session with Year 3 in the morning, and attended a special World Book Day assembly.
In the afternoon they had some lovely stories read to them by Miss Lea (Y2 teacher) during our class/teacher storytime swap!

The Penguins thoroughly enjoyed Science day. The day began with a super science assembly led by Kinetic Kate and she 'wowed' us with her interesting experiments - our favourite was the fire bubble!
Then we learn how to mix a solid and a liquid to create a gas and enjoyed blowing up balloons and making a rocket blast into the air.
Next we did some experiments of our own which included learning about; light sources and reflectivity, floating and sinking, taste and sense of smell and friction/speed. It was lots of fun and it was great to see the Penguin getting involved and asking lots of questions as well as making predictions about what would happen.
The children's favourite experiment was the jellybean tasting experiment! It was so interesting to find out how much smell influences our sense of taste.
Have a look in the 'photos' section of the Reception Class page to see pictures of us in action.
Well done for being such superb scientists!
