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!

Robins - Digital Citizenship

Date: 2nd Nov 2020 @ 7:45pm

Robins have worked incredibly hard over our first term learning all about digital citizenship during our Computing Lessons.

We have learned how to keep safe whilst using the Internet through a variety of activities.We used programmes such as 2connect to display ideas and concepts related to how we use the internet.

We also used 2email on purplemash to send emails to eachother in the class. We discussed how this was a safe platform as purplemash is managed and moderated by teachers at our school. However, we discussed how other email platforms are not as saf.

We discussed how to recognise real and fake posts on blogs and other platforms. We discussed what to look out for and how we must be careful what information we share on the internet. Super work Robins!

For our KS1 assembly this week, we have been discussing what bullying means and how we can make sure that there is no bullying in our school. This links to our SMSC by discussing our morals and ways we can be a good citizen.

"I pledge to be kind"

"I pledge to not be a bystander"

We made a pledge to stop bullying as a class and we wrote different ways that we could do that on our handprint.

Well done Robins!

Robins - Role play area

In Science today, we enjoyed doing some cross curricular work in our role play area. We used scientific vocabulary and our knowledge of habitats to discuss where animals in the UK may live. Then we stuck pictures of animals on the map.

We enjoyed extending our vocabulary by using words such as "adapted" and "habitat"

Well done Robins!

Date: 15th Sep 2020 @ 3:55pm

Hello Robins,

What a fantastic, creative, busy day we have had today! I am incredibly proud of how sensible you all were in the outdoor area today.

In Art this year, we are exploring collage and using Eric Carle as a model for this. Today, we explored our outdoor area and looked at all the different habitats we have. We had a go at sketching some for our art sketchbooks.

Excellent effort Robins! I can't wait to see your Eric Carle inspired collages later in the term.
