Shared Reading

Our friends from Year 5 joined us this morning for an Ice World reading group.  We looked at lots of different fiction and non-fiction books linked to our topic.

What a lovely morning! Thank you Miss Kindon and Year 5.


News just in!

It’s amazing everyone, our egg has hatched!

We were shocked to discover this morning that the egg had a crack in it. We were watching it very carefully when Nicky suddenly noticed that the shell had moved, it had been nudged a little.

All of the children in Year 1 were so excited, finally it hatched and a little baby penguin came out!

We thought of some different names for our penguin and as a class voted for our favourite.

Please meet Biscuit.

Luckily the children in Year 1 are are doing a fabulous job of looking after him. They are taking it in turns to take him home and write in his home diary.

Mysterious Mail!

This morning Mrs Mayo delivered a very special letter that had come in the post. We opened the letter to find out what it was about. It was from our new friend called Norma who had lost something over the Christmas holidays. We had to solve the clues to find the next clue.

The final clue told us to make sure we look high and low to find the precious item that Norma had lost. After some super searching Jenson found an egg in the fridge.  It was a very large egg!

We decided we would help Norma by keeping the egg in a safe and warm place. So we looked around the classroom a thought the best place for the egg would be in the reading corner, wrapped up in a blanket in front of the heater.

Later, we predicted what might be in the egg.

“ I think there is a terrifying dinosaur inside the egg.” Hudson

“I think there is a poisonous snake inside the egg.”


“I think there is a fire breathing dragon inside the egg.” Joshua

“I think there is a fluffy penguin inside the egg.”


What do you think might be inside our egg?

It has gone very cold!

The children in Year 1 have returned from their Christmas holidays to find the classroom has been transformed into an amazing Antarctic landscape. We have lots of penguins in the classroom and there is a rowing boat in the ocean for our home corner. There are pretty lights, snowballs and lots of snowflakes.
