Robins read the story of ‘Mr Gumpy’s Outing’ and acted out the animal characters who misbehaved on his boat. They had a walk to the park on their own outing and drew maps of the route. At Forest School some of the Robins used the bow saw to cut pieces of log. They had great fun playing in the gloopy swamp in the water tray and made tyre tracks with paint. Robins also enjoyed a Big Friend Bake Off on Friday and cooked some delicious chocolate cookies to share with their Big Friends.
Robins have been making toast pizza, counting the number of toppings as part of their maths work-the classroom smelt delicious. Hugo brought in an artist box that he was given for his birthday and inspired many of the Robins to have a go at water colour painting. In gym they learnt about balances and some of the children were able to balance on their hands without touching the floor with any other part of their body-Mrs Netting is still working on it!
This week we have been learning a song about good behaviour with our Big Friends which we performed in our class assembly as well as reading out our ideas about how we use our hands. Miss Ballinger taught us different rolls in gym including log rolls, tucked rolls and forward rolls.
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.
