A personal highlight for the children has been learning all about ‘Penguins’ the children have thoroughly enjoyed this and now are mini expects on how the penguin survives in such harsh conditions.
One of the favorite activities that they children did this week was to pretend they were penguins in the hall transporting their egg safely back while trying to stop the egg (ball) from rolling off their feet. This was made extra fun by the children having to stay together in order to keep warm.
As you can see from the pictures, the children found this a particularly funny activity and we loved seeing how engaged in their learning they were.
The children in Reception also enjoyed measuring themselves against an Emperor Penguin to see if they were as tall yet! It was great to see their faces when they realized the actual size of the penguin.
