Something very peculiar happened this morning in 1C. We walked into class to find ice and fish on the carpet! There was lots of ice surrounded by fish in our construction area. Lots of ideas were floating back and forth as to why it was there and what/who could have done it. Could it be a polar bear? Could it have been the cleaners? Was it Miss Hardy? Or maybe it was a penguin? Even some of our parents were helping us to think!
We all had a long talk about it and decided that a polar bear couldn't fit through our door so it can't be that. We then decided that Miss Hardy couldn't have done it because she walked into the class first and saw it there! We all agreed the cleaners wouldn't have left it as they are so super good at cleaning that they would have seen it! So we have decided it must have been a penguin! They really like fish too! Although we think the cheeky penguin thought the fish was real until he realised that they were plastic!
We had lots of discussions about why we thought a penguin would have been in our classroom. These included; he had got lost, he had escaped from the zoo, he was trying to find his way back to his home, he had swam from the arctic! All in all we really wished we had since it!! So that's when some of us decided to write about why we wanted him to come back!! We then spent the rest of the day writing and making videos about why we wanted the penguin to come back. Here are some videos that you can watch! Fingers crossed he might come back as we have left him some fish out and put chairs across a section of the classroom so he can't get lost again....that's if he decided to come back!
