Robins enjoyed spending an afternoon at Forest School with Year 1s learning to tie knots on Wednesday. They have also begun their new topic ‘Off we go’ travelling to space in a rocket tent in the book corner and climbing aboard a train in the role-play area. During PE this term a gym instructor from School Sports Network will be teaching Robins. This week Miss Ballinger taught us body shapes and how to use them in jumps and turns. She was impressed with how hard the children worked.
Robins had such a busy term leading up to Christmas. They had a brilliant trip to The Roses Theatre to see 'Robin Hood' which had us laughing, singing and booing along. We also enjoyed our final Forest School session toasting marshmallows as well as performing our star dance in the Christmas concert. We rounded off our 'Once upon a time' topic with a fancy dress day. The children looked brilliant in their fairytale costumes and we had fun guessing which characters everyone was dressed as.
We were very proud of the Robins for presenting their first assembly to the school and parents. They told the audience how we had drawn story maps, made soup, planted vegetable seeds and printed with vegetables before singing to everyone about the mouse's 'great muscles' which eventually helped to pull up the enormous turnip!
Robins also got adventurous at Forest School climbing tress as well as turning themselves into scarey mud monsters!
Robins have been reading the story of The Gingerbread Man this week. We acted out the story, drew story maps, made puppets and baked gingerbread biscuits. In maths we have been learning about 2D shapes and used them to make gingerbread man pictures. We also enjoyed some delicious gingerbread pumpkins Erin made for us. On Friday we had great fun mud painting.
