Welcome to Penguins Class

Class Teacher: Miss Haddon

General Information



This half term our topic is 'Toy Story!' 

In our topic lessons we will be finding out about the toys and games children enjoyed playing in the past. In Science we will be investigating different materials and in D.T. we will be designing and making model playground equipment. 



We love to read in Penguins class!

We have daily comprehension lessons to develop our understanding, inference, prediction and sequencing skills. In these lessons we enjoy reading a range of texts including stories, non-fiction and poems. 

Don't forget... whenever you read at home to get your adult to initial in the home section of your planner. When you have finished your book put it in the 'I need a new book' box so you change it for a new, exciting home read book. 


Phonics and Spelling

Continuing from Year 1, we have a daily phonics lesson. Each Monday we have a spelling quiz based on the previous week's learning.


Mental Maths

Each Monday we will have a mental maths quiz alongside our spelling quiz.



This half term P.E. will be on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure you have your full P.E. kit with you.

Class Currency Afternoon

On Friday 8th November, we spent the 20 counters we had saved on a toy afternoon. We all brought in our favourite toy and had lots of fun! 
On Monday 16th September we had a Funnybones experience morning. We learnt how to bandage arms, legs and heads and to tie a sling. Then we worked together as a team to assemble a life-size skeleton before finally meeting Doctor Fogerty who talked to us all about his job, demonstrated how he puts a plaster cast on and showed us some x-rays. 
We had lots of fun making our very own paper plate pets!
