Robins - Science investigations

Date: 22nd Jan 2021 @ 8:56pm

In Science, we are learning all about materials. Today, we read the story of the three little pigs and discussed why the first two houses were not good materials for house building.

Then, we went outside and made houses out of different materials and tested their durability and properties as a house for the little pigs. We had lots of fun throwing water over our houses to see if we could knock them down.

Hello Robins,

I am incredibly proud of all the children who are learning from home. The work you have been submitting through Seesaw is making me incredibly proud and I am so happy to see you are all working hard.

Well done Kody who represented equal groups using a very creative way.


Well done Mia, who has done a fantastic character description about her butterfly. Me and Mrs Penman were so impressed!

Robins - A little visitor!

Date: 6th Dec 2020 @ 8:55pm

This week, robins had a little visitor in our classroom. It was our school elf Snowball! He caused all sorts of chaos including hiding our arithmetic papers, messing up our maths working wall and leaving lots of incorrect calculations. We had lots of fun correcting his calculations and showing him how clever we are. Hopefully he will tell Santa how hard we have worked.

Robins - Seamonkeys

Date: 26th Nov 2020 @ 8:15pm

This term in Science, we have been discussing what an animal needs to survive so Miss Dooley thought it would be a good idea if we applied this knowledge by keeping our own class pet!

Last Friday, we purified the water for our sea monkeys so the water was the perfect habitat. Then, on Tuesday, we poured our eggs into the water. We stir the water daily to introduce air into the water and in 5 days, we will feed the sea monkeys.

At the moment, they are too tiny to see but if we successfully take care of our animals and give them all of the things that they need to survive that we have been discussing in science, then they will grow and we will have happy healthy sea monkeys!

Robins - Outdoor Learning

Date: 21st Nov 2020 @ 9:57pm

We have had lots of fun outside this week. 

We created a shelter for our animals in our Science, we made Rangoli patterns for Big Question and we went on a word hunt for phonics. We identified which words were real and nonsense and sorted them in our trays. We even extended our learning by writing some of our words in sentences.

No matter whether rain or shine, we love taking our learning outside!
