Term 1 

Firstly, a big welcome to the Penguins class and their parents/carers!  


As you know your child is being taught by me, Miss McCombe, and Mrs Gurr will be covering my PPA time.

Our class teaching assistants are Mrs King, Mrs Donaldson and Mrs Plumpton (1:1). 


We are all looking forward to getting to know your child better and helping them to settle in to school life during the coming weeks. Over the first term there will be much to learn that is new to both you and your child but we aim for a gentle transition to new routines for everyone and very much look forward to working in partnership with you.


Our topic question for term 1 is:

What makes me special?

This topic will allow the children to share about themselves, their likes, their families and what is important to them. This will be a great opportunity for us to get to know the children and for the children to get to know each other.

We have been learning the days of the week song!

Can you sing it to your adult?
