Learning in Penguin Class

Tuesday, January 7th, 2020

Here is some of the learning that took place in Penguin Class last term.

The children have been exploring a range of materials and textures through their senses.

In Literacy the children have been sharing books, listening to stories, exploring letters, learning to read symbols, making marks or tracing letters and sequencing.

In Maths we have explored numbers and shapes. Through play, learnt about weight and size and completed sorting, puzzles and matching.

In the arts we have explored colour when completing our art work and learnt to make music with different instruments. We have also been singing lots of new songs.

When developing our personal and social skills we have been exploring healthy foods, learning to play with our friends and labelling emotions.

In Forest School we have learnt to sit safely in the fire circle, learnt about nature and even got to hold sparklers!

We do lots of cooking, although many of the things we cook never tend to make it home.


We always work on communication and language. The children learn to focus and listen through shared attention ‘bucket’ and learn to communicate by signing or using PECs.

The children have also been working on their fine motor skills by completing lots of tasks that help to develop their cutting, threading, coordination and building strength in their hands and fingers.


Well done Penguin Class – keep up the good work and carry on learning lots of new things.
