For Penguin Awareness Day, children were invited to bring a penguin toy from home, to wear a T-shirt with penguins on it or to bring a penguin related book. Early Years learnt about how penguins look, move and eat while School Years found out where penguins can be found (their natural habitat), how they are affected by people (pollution and global warming) and what we can do about this.
Baby Acorns explored a sensorial tray filled with light blue boiled spaghetti, shaving foam and plastic penguins.
Shiny Stars investigated how ice melts as they played with penguins
Early Explorers painted penguins, created a snowy scene and arctic animals that they used for a display
