It's been a fun filled week in Base 1. This week has been made extra special by the covering of snow we had on Wednesday which allowed us to explore the world of our penguin family, the Pilchard Browns, first hand! We used our construction skills to build our own igloos, ensuring they were a dome shape and had a door way, and went on an icicle hunt around the school field. We even managed to take our maths outside and found numerals and pieces of numicon to count hidden in the snow. When the children found a number they had to put the correct number of dots into the snow using coloured water. It was very interesting watching what happened to the snow when we added the colours and how it had changed when we came back to look the next day!

We have been becoming penguin experts this week after finding a penguin visitor in our classroom. His name is Pog and he came with his adventure story for us to read and a letter asking if he could stay for a while. Naturally, we set about making Pog feel very at home! We made him some penguin friends using cut out shapes of paper and working hard to develop our cutting skills as well as researching penguins and writing penguin facts. We have learnt some songs about penguins and adapted them to add extra verses as well as creating our very own small world for Pog to live in whilst he is with us.

We are due some more chilly weather this week, so please do wrap up warm and bring coats, hats, scarfs and gloves to school. We will continue to go exploring outside and experience all of these different weather conditions!

I hope you have had a lovely weekend.
