Welcome to Robins!
I hope you've all had a great summer and I look forward to the term ahead! Below is a short welcoming letter to you all, a brief plan for the term and a poster describing our topic - Rainforests!
Plans may change throughout the term depending on the children's progress and what they would like to explore further.
We started the term off with a whole school focus on a book called Willy the Dreamer! We chose our favourite part and wrote our own stories. The class made puppets to act out their story and even made their own monkey by following a list of instructions.
We started off the term looking at number in maths. The children have made good use of the resources in the class and practiced strategies together and individually.
In RE we have been looking at what makes a good friend after looking at Luke 5:1-11 Jesus Chooses his First Disciples where Jesus chooses those that are hard working and who do not think they are worthy of anything.
In music, we have been looking into the sounds of the rainforest. We listened to a piece of music based on these sounds and discussed what we could hear. The children decided the storm was the noise they heard the most so we decided to make the sounds of a storm with our hands and feet and then moved on to musical instruments.
In Science, Robins are looking at materials! We investigated the environment - in the classroom and outside in the playground - and discovered which objects were made out of each material we had discussed. Robins recorded this in a table.
We focused on shape in maths this week! Robins explored the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.
