As part of our topic ‘It’s Cold Outside,’ the Puffins and Sparrows have been learning about penguins. Yesterday in PE, the children moved around like penguins (including sliding on their tummies), created a huddle to keep warm and even looked after an egg on their feet just like a real Daddy penguin in Antarctica. Meanwhile in the Computer Suite, the children have been learning to control a computer mouse and paint a picture of a penguin using the program 2Paint a Picture. Some children even had a go at typing their name using the keyboard.
This week, Antarctica has also opened. The children have had great fun taking on the role of an explorer- searching for animals and fish that live in the South Pole, measuring penguins, cooking fish and lots more!
