Welcome to Penguin Class.

We hope you have all had a lovely summer. This year, we have lots of exciting opportunities planned for our penguins. We start the year with a fantastic topic titled 'Toys Through Time' where we will learn about, and explore, various toys from the past and present. Next term, our learning will be focused on geography when we study our topic 'What a Wonderful World'.

Our daily read aloud for this term is 'Mr Gum and the Biscuit Billionaire' by Andy Stanton. We share the series with the rest of the school, so that we can share the silliness and joy of Andy Stanton's work together. 

Our PE days will be: Tuesday & Friday so please ensure your child has the appropriate kit with them on these days. 

Reading books: Children's reading record books will be checked on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please do read at home as we know reading is feeding! Children's imagination, empathy and understanding will flourish with every page they read... and five signed reads earns the children a reward in the form of a raffle ticket for a chance to win a book during celebration assembly on Friday. 

Homework will be handed out on a Friday and due in on the following Wednesday, this will give us time to celebrate the children's work before sending the children's books back home.  


Please do continue to check this page for future updates as I will add more information as we move through the term.  

Best wishes, 


Miss Gascoine
