Lutton St Nicholas Primary AcademyWelcome to Penguins Class

Taylor's Bulbs Visit

Penguin Class had a fantastic afternoon at Taylor's Bulbs. We looked at the different parts of a daffodil plant and then planted an Amaryllis bulb. The children were very good at listening and asked lots of questions to the staff.

Science Week

On Monday the children began their cress seed investigation. We wanted to find out what plants need to grow. They decided where we should keep them- we chose the windowsill, outside, in the freezer and in a dark cupboard.

On Tuesday, the children worked with Mrs Cropley to hunt and identify worms. They then sorted them into groups.

On Thursday- we built Gentoo Penguin nests and tested them against rain and wind to see if they could survive the weather. They used exactly what a Gentoo Penguin would use- rocks, feathers and moss or other plants.

The children were able to write up their plans and evaluations.

Today we spelled words using the split-digraph i-e.

Science

We had lots of fun today planting our very own seeds. The children planted basil, tomatoes and rocket. They learned that seeds need water and sunlight to help them grow.

Boat testing

Over the past couple of weeks we have been designing a toy boat. Today we constructed our boats and tested them in water. Some boats were successful and some sank. We discussed why they floated or sank using properties of the materials to explain our answers.

Roots to Food

The children had a fantastic morning preparing, cooking and tasting Chicken Curry.

Pirate Workshop

Shiver me timbers! Looks like some scary Pirates came to Lutton St Nicholas!

A Special Visitor

Penguin Class had a visit from an Elf this morning. He came with gifts for each of the children donated by FOLS.
