Another great week in penguin class! I’m maths we have been exploring the Numicon. We have also learnt different sounds with Fred whilst Skip and Bounce have introduced us to more letters. 

HOLIDAY CHALLENGE: 1. Can you count objects using 1:1 correspondence (remember to line the objects up to make it easier to count.) 2. Practise writing your name.

I cannot believe we have reached the end of term 1 already. I am extremely proud of how far you have all come in just one term. You are all SUPERSTARS! A big thank you to all the parents / carers for your support too this term. I hope you all have a great half term and I can’t wait to see you next term penguins. P.S. I would love to see what you get up to over the holidays and any home learning you do on ILD.


Tomorrow is individual photos day. If you have pre school children, you can bring them for a photo with their sibling in the lower hall from 8am.  If you child has siblings in school, they will take their photo during the school day. Don’t forget to practise your smiles ready for tomorrow penguins, “say cheeeeeeeeeeeese.” 🙂 


We really enjoyed having all the parents / carers join us in the morning to take part in different maths activities. It was great to see such a good turn out! 

There will be many more throughly thrilling events throughout the year. 

We are already looking forward to the next one 🙂 


A huge well done to Daisy and Alexis for sharing their home learning on ILD. It was great to see you recognising the dice patterns. Keep up the great work!!

We love to celebrate children’s learning. I look forward to seeing more home learning throughout the week 🙂 


Another great week in penguin class! We met Barry, Mario and Iggle Piggle (pet fishes). We got to find out more about each other by sharing our home learning. We have been busy playing and learning in the classroom.  We have continued to learn more sounds from Fred in phonics and in maths we have been looking at subitising.(regular dice patterns)

MATHS HOME CHALLENGE:  Can you recognise the dice pattern without counting the dots?

Remember to share home learning on ILD. It would be great to see what learning takes place outside of school. 🙂


WOW! The all about me boxes looked amazing. Well done penguins for all the hard work you put into making them! 

Miss Iqbal and the penguins really enjoyed finding out more about each other. The children shared the contents of their boxes and talked about the different items in the box. It was great to see how confident all the children were when talking about themselves! The children particularly enjoyed looking at the different toys in the boxes 😉 


WHAT AN EXCITING MORNING WE HAD TODAY!!! Our sparkling start was a great way to introduce our theme. (An overview has been sent out with more info about our theme this term.) We were introduced to our pet fishes. After many suggestions and ideas, we all finally agreed to name the fishes: Barry, Mario and Iggle Piggle. We are very excited to look after them and enjoy watching them swim.
