Welcome to the Penguin's Class page.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Penguin Parents for being so supportive of their children's learning this year. Many of the children have taken real ownership and pride in their learning especially in their homework tasks and these have been a pleasure to mark.
I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching the Penguins again for a second year, they are a lovely class and have been an absolute pleasure to teach. I thank you as parents for being committed to your child's learning.
Before I start my maternity leave, I would like to end by wishing all Penguins the best for the remainder of year 4 and beyond and I hope they continue to show their enthusiasm and thrive in their learning.
All the very best,

SPaG- Spelling, Punctation and Grammar
SPaG is an important part of the KS2 curriculum, which supports children in their English work. Some of the terminology that we learn in SPaG can be quite tricky with new vocabulary being introduced all the time.
Here is a helpful glossary of grammar terms, with all of the terminology that children should know by the end of KS2. Some of this you will obviously already know, but some of it does get rather technical, so please do not worry about asking for further clarification.
If you wish to email Mrs Hamblin-Harris, please do so here. Thank you.
