Welcome to Penguins!

We are passionate about our learning and strive to do our best in all we do. We love working as part of a team and show care and compassion to everyone in our lovely school. Our teachers are Mrs Webber, who enjoys teaching music and playing tennis, and Miss King, who loves sport and teaching English. In year 6, we also have Mrs Carlene to help us on our learning journey.

During the year, we investigate many inspiring topics including Spitfires and Hurricanes (World War Two) and Challenge Caldecott. We like to go on visits to support our learning and frequently have visitors and special days in school, which are linked to our topic. This is also the year group when we have the opportunity to go on a residential trip to Morfa Bay in Wales.

In our learning, we are always developing and improving our 5Rs:

* Resilience

* Resourcefulness

* Reflectiveness

* Responsibility

* Respect

 

We also demonstrate the 5Rs beyond the classroom. For example, as the oldest children in the school, we enjoy taking on responsibilities such as being Reading Champions, Maths Ambassadors and House Captains. We also use our resourcefulness to raise money for our end of year celebrations.

 

We know how important it is to keep fit and healthy and enjoy participating in PE sessions so we need our PE kit (including our water bottles) in school at all times. We love to read so we need to remember to have our reading books in school every day and complete our weekly reading homework. We enjoy using My Maths to practise our maths skills at home.

Oxford Castle Visit

Penguins enjoyed visiting Oxford Castle and learning about the prisoners' lives. We were astonished to learn that children as young as 7 had been locked up in prison. We had a fascinating tour from our guide Robin, who did not spare us any of the gory details of prison life, then we took part in a workshop researching some of the Victorian children who had been prisoners.

Shakespeare Birthplace Trust Project

We have been lucky enough to be selected to work with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust on an arts project. First a story-teller came into school and involved us in a re-enactment of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Following her visit, we were inspired to write our own stories. Next we were visited by a ceramicist who taught thirty of us how to make clay portrait tiles. These will be on display in school, once they are glazed.

Penguins enjoyed making Woolton Pie, a recipe from World War Two, as part of their topic learning. The children practised a range of skills including measuring, peeling, slicing and grating. All the pies were delicious and the experimental addition of herbs and spices was a success!
