Penguin – Past Events

Autumn Term 2019

We have been working so hard on our Christmas Performance, we hope you all enjoy it! Look at our fabulous costumes.

We had a delicious Christmas dinner at school today! We all showed amazing manners; a huge thank you to our kitchen staff!

Over the past fortnight we have enjoyed preparing for Percy the Penguins’ birthday. We wrote invitations and birthday cards for his party. We carried out a class tally to find which party food was our favourite. We made decorations, badges and presents using craft and construction. Finally we celebrated with a fantastic party!

Physical Development in Year R

Below are some of the Penguins taking part in a small selection of the gross motor activities available to them throughout the school day.

We work on building core strength through a range of tasks – including using the outdoor gym, rolling large tyres, yoga, and using our brand new pully system!

The development of strong core muscles is really important at this young age.

Look at us go! 

On Friday 15th November, we all brought in a teddy from home and donated to Children in Need. We also completed some Pudsey themed activities at school during the week.

Thank you so much for your generous donations!

We have been on our Autumn Walk.  We were super Autumn Detectives! 

Here are some of the signs of Autumn we spotted:


We have been working hard in our PE lessons at school. We are getting very quick at changing into our PE kits and have been learning lots of new skills and games!

We have had a lovely first week exploring our new classroom. Take a look at what we’ve been up to.

Thank you to all of the grown ups who came in and played games with us!

We have had a busy day with lots of storytelling. A huge thank you to the grown ups who visited us today to read stories.

We had a fantastic trip to Gosport!

We all enjoyed travelling on the train, the ferry and the coach. We spotted lots of other transport on our journey too!

What a busy day!

The school nurses came to visit us to talk about hand washing. We talked about when it is important to wash our hands and how to make sure they are really clean!

We had fun with our grandparents on Silver Surfers and Safer Internet Day!

Yo! Ho! Ho Me Hearties!

We had a brilliant day learning to be Pirates. We went on a treasure hunt around the school, we made telescopes, we played lot of different pirate games and we made fish.

 Gosh! A Pirate’s life is tiring!

Yoga with Elsa! 

During this half term, Year R are enjoying learning some yoga poses with Elsa from Club Morgan. Here we are, learning four new poses and some relaxation techniques.
