Perfect Penguins

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

 

 

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!

Science Week

 

For Science week the Perfect Penguins were involved in multiple investigations. We learnt that everyone can be a scientist by exploring and asking questions to discover answers. Some of the experiments we carried out were investigating different ways to melt ice and creating bubble mixtures.

Spring 2

 

This term our new topic is called ‘Rio De Vida’. For our memorable experience the Perfect Penguins participated in a range of activities. The class tried a mixture of Brazilian street foods, created their own rainforest bunting and discovered the location of Rio and Brazil using Atlases.

Spring 1

 

As part of the Street Detectives topic the Perfect Penguins went for a walk around Belper, to look at a variety of local buildings, places and streets. After, the children all drew their favourite place from the walk. Some of these pictures were used to highlight on a map the route which was taken and the places they passed.

On Friday morning, Mrs Kerry, a local resident, visited the class to answer any questions from the children about Belper town in the past. During the afternoon the class designed their own paper chain people to show the different job roles within their community.

Fun Friday

 

Last week the Perfect Penguins won golden time as a reward for earning the most class cubes in KS1. As a result, we spent this Friday afternoon, eating cookies, watching Kipper the Dog and painting our own Belper rocks. Well done to the Perfect Penguins for all their hard work.

Beat Bang Boogie Bottle Shakers

 

For the last two weeks we have been looking at instructions in our English lessons. To start the sequence of lessons we created and decorated our own Bottle shakers to help support our writing.

Autumn 2

 

On Friday the children all participated in an African style music workshop, which started this half term with a bang! The class were able to join in by dancing and trying to play different musical instruments. This experience will help support this half terms topic- ‘’Beat, Bang, Boogie’’.

During the experience day we explored the school grounds, discovering the different types of trees and finding the magical creatures hidden in the woods.
