A penguin arrived in our playground!

Year 1 and 2 were very surprised and excited to find a penguin in our playground on Tuesday.

He was trapped inside a block of ice!

The children had lots of ideas of how we should get him out including breaking the ice with a hammer, putting it somewhere warm and pouring on warm water to make the ice melt.


We brought the penguin into the warm classroom and poured some warm water on him.  It took all day for all the ice around him to melt.  


We voted on a name for the penguin and chose Snowflake because he comes from a cold place.

We’re going to find out lots more about penguins so we know how to look after him.  Ask us what we have found out!
