Due to the requirement of school closure I have attached a range of activities, which aims to help support and continue your child’s learning from home. I will update these plans weekly for anyone that is choosing to follow them but there is no requirement to follow them strictly.
If you would like to follow some of the activities a few of the resources will require access to Twinkl, which is an educational website. They are currently allowing free access for parents and teachers, to help support home learning for the next month.
Sorry to hear some of you are struggling to access this weeks resources. I have emailed Twinkl about this problem. They have advised to follow the instructions below to access all the resources on Twinkl-

To all the Perfect Penguins,
Hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine this week! I’ve been missing each and every one of you. I’ve had a very busy week and have spent lots of time working in the garden whilst Lola has slept. I even found a spider who was making his own web. I have also started decorating around the house too and painted lots of furniture. Can you spot who has been coming along with me?
Remember to stay safe, wash your hands and keep smiling!

Welcome to the Perfect Penguin class with Miss King and Miss Boot
This term our P.E lessons will take place on Wednesday and Friday. 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.
World Book Day
The perfect penguins explored changing the shape of plasticine in order to see if they could make it float. The class concluded that plasticine floats when moulded a bowl shape.
