Perfect Penguins

Welcome to the Perfect Penguin class with Miss King and Mrs Borysiak

This term our P.E lessons will take place on Tuesday and Thursday. Please can you ensure your child has their P.E kit in school on these days. Please could we also ask for long hair to be tied back and any earrings to be removed.

 

Any Homework which is set, will be sent out with your child on a Friday. We ask that this is completed by the following Wednesday.

 

Thank you!

As part of the Moon Zoom topic the Perfect Penguins explored and investigated the scene of a spaceship crash site. The class took photographic evidence and drew pictures of the spacecraft before the site was cleared.

After the class sorted through a range of different materials that had been collected from the scene and they were grouped together by their various properties.

Lastly, the Perfect Penguins designed and made their own space rockets from recycled materials. The children were encouraged to discuss how each part worked and describe why it would be a suitable design for an astronaut, or alien to use for space travel.
