We read an information book about penguins and discovered some penguin facts – we learnt that daddy penguins carry the egg on their feet for two months, and take in no food at all before the egg is ready to hatch – we all thought that sounded like a very tough job indeed! We enjoyed making standing 3D penguins, which helped to develop our skills using the stapler, scissors and glue – we talked about different joining and fixing methods and which were most appropriate for this job.

In mathematics, we have been counting on and back – using the ten square, number line and hundred square to answer questions such as, what is one, two or even three more/less than a given number?
