Penguins Class - Summer 2

This half term we have been looking at life cycles through The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We have been tasting and exploring the different fruits the caterpillar ate. We have really enjoyed the story and have been joining in with lots of the repeated phrases and the Makaton signs. As part of our literacy lessons, some of us have been sequencing the story and some of us have been exploring the story and using the props to retell it. We have been very creative this half term and have been making caterpillars with different media including paint and collage materials.

We have been out on the minibus to different places in the local community including supermarkets and pet shops. We have also taken advantage of the warm weather and been for walks in the local community.

Next half term, we are looking forward to Drayton Manor and the Sponsored walk as well as visiting Rosliston Forestry Centre and Barton Marina. Next half term, we are looking at The Gruffalo and Brown Bear. We will explore the forest for the Gruffalo and build homes for the different animals they encounter.
