What a busy week we have had and a trip too! We have completed our penguin fact files and will be bringing them home to share with you tonight. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we have enjoyed learning about penguins. Some of the sentences we have practised as a class and others we have written independently. We have great knowledge about penguins and it was lovely to see them on our trip.
At the Sea Life centre we saw lots of different fish and sea creatures. We were treated to a lovely time by the otters, who were playing and showing off to us. We had a fantastic time walking through the tunnel, watching the rays, sharks and the giant turtle swimming around us. We were able to touch the star fish in the rock pool and crawl through the clownfish tunnel. All of the children were very well behaved and we are proud of them. Members of the public commented on how polite and sensible they were!
Each child will come home today with a page of real and alien words to practise sounding out and blending to read. For example w-ai-p = waip. Please help your child with this activity and practise throughout the week. We will send another set next Friday. Incase they are lost here is the sheet.
This afternoon we have been making sculptures using plastic spoons, elastic bands and cups in the style of Jill Townsley. We had great fun, but it was a little frustrating too!
Have a lovely weekend
