Year 1 Penguins Class

Welcome to Penguin Class


Welcome to you all joining Penguins Class in Year 1. The teacher is Mrs Bharakhda and the teaching assistant is Mrs Gardener. We are really looking forward to learning lots of new and exciting things this school year. In our class we are a family and we enjoy learning, playing and exploring together in our classroom and outdoor area. God is at the centre of all we do and we start and end each day with a prayer.


Trip to Brooks Farm


Year One are learning about their local area and mini beasts. We got to visit Brooks Farm to see all the lovely animals in our local farm. We got to feed the goats, chickens, cows and llamas. There was a beautiful peacock that made a loud calling sound to attract a female peacock called peahen.

We also took part in a mini-beast hunt where we searched for various types of mini-beasts. Do you know the names of any mini-beats? We found ladybirds, butterflies, bees, hornets and spiders. We then went back to school and wrote about our experiences at the farm.

Forensic Workshops

All children from Nursery to Year Two had the task of investigating a dog napping incident.  They learnt about DNA and how a crime scene is investigated.  They applied their knowledge and solved the crime and Year Two then went on to solve a “robbery”.  Learning about DNA was exciting and hands on; we definitely have some budding scientists in school.

Science Week

During Science Week we took part in a dog napping investigation, we also took part in many experiments like planting seeds in different conditions, making elephant toothpaste and using a mixture of chemicals to make lights resembling the 'Northern Lights'.
