Penguins - Reception
Ahoy me hearties!
I hope you all had an amazing half term break, especially with the beautiful sunshine we have been having! Welcome to a new half term, we are going to have lots of fun with our new theme, 'In a land far far away...'.
You may have guessed from my greeting that this week, we will be thinking all about pirates! We have planned lots of activities which you might like to try, including treasure hunts, making maps and building a pirate ship! Perhaps you can dress up as a pirate one day too? What would your pirate name be, I wonder? Please upload your photos to Tapestry, I am missing you all lots and it is a lovely way to keep in touch!
Please keep a lookout on this page, as I will upload a daily video lesson. This will mean that we are able to do some phonics and maths learning together!
Have a great week Penguins! Or should I say Pirates?!

Penguin's Photo Board
Thank you for posting photos of your learning and activities you are doing at home on Tapestry, we love looking at them!

- The photo should show what you have been up to with your Home Learning.
- If you are in the photo, make sure it doesn't show your name.

Reading at Home
Have you checked out Oxford Owl for reading books? There are some fantastic reading books for you to share with each other. Our Class login details are penguinclassstm and the password is crab.
There is also another website you can access for fun games which allows your child to practise phonics and reading. It is called Teach Your Monster To Read and is free to use on computers (there is a charge to use on other devices such as iPads). It follows Letter and Sounds which is how phonics has been taught, alongside RWI, in Penguins Class.
Have fun reading together!
Hello everyone! It is wonderful looking at all the learning you have been doing at home! Please don't forget to upload any photographs of yourselves on to Tapestry - we love seeing them and it is such a great way to keep in touch with you! Here is a photo of Mrs Gibbs on her way for a bike ride!
If you are unable to access Tapestry, please email the school on email@example.com and we will try to sort that for you.
Take care of yourselves and remember to keep in touch!
Mrs Maudsley, Mrs Gibbs and Mrs Mayhew
