Robins in action!

Summer Term

Week beginning 13th June 2022


Week beginning 23rd May 2022

We have had a lovely week in Robins class. We have been thinking about how we can look after our minds and decided to get out in nature to help us feel more relaxed. We particularly enjoyed cloud watching. We also updated our self-portrait wall and it was amazing to see how much our art skills have improved since September. On Friday 27th May we enjoyed a day celebrating the Queen’s platinum jubilee. We had great fun decorating cupcakes, learning dance moves to songs from a range of decades and making our own crowns.

Week beginning 9th May 2022

This week we have been working to identify equal and unequal groups. Some of us then found ways to help us add equal groups together. The year ones have been working really hard to learn how to use capital letters and full stops correctly and have all really impressed Miss Larter with their progress towards this. In RSHE we have been thinking about how we can be resilient and also support others to be more resilient.

Week beginning 2nd May 2022

This week was off to an exciting start as we were sent a parcel from the zoo but the animal they sent us had escaped! We managed to piece together some clues to work out that the escaped animal must have been an ostrich. We decided to warn the rest of the school about the escaped bird by doing some research and then creating posters. Throughout the week we learned about different groups of animals and some of us made books and fact posters to share what we had found out.

Week beginning 25th April 2022

On the first day back after the Easter break the whole school went to the church for an Easter service with Father Chris. We all had a lovely time and enjoyed sharing some of our beautiful artwork with everyone. This term our topic is ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ and to get things started the wonderful Robin parents secretly sent in photographs of pets so we could try and guess who each animal belonged to. We had great fun guessing and the Year One children even used the photographs to do some sorting. On Wednesday Ed from Mini Monsters came to school and introduced us to some amazing animals and we learned a lot of interesting facts about each one. This week we also had some new hammocks arrive for our outside area and we have all really enjoyed relaxing in them under the trees.
