Monday 11th February
Just one week left until half term. The children are really shining at the moment; putting in good amounts of effort and showing a lot of concentration. Their portal stories were excellent and we have cracked division for the time being. Although, we all know a holiday can help them forget. If you can keep up the practise over the break, that would be brilliant. We’ve ran around the playground this week as part of mental health week. We will be moving on to the metal ages soon so keep an eye out for more information.

I’ve really noticed this week how hard some children are trying with their learning. There is some really excellent learning going on with many children. We have written our very own story in English and learnt all about the relationship between adding and subtracting. There has also been some excellent use of a javelin to catch Stone Age animals. Here are a few photos.
It was also nice to see some snow, although it’s very cold!
Monday 28th January
This week saw the children dive in deep to some serious learning. We learnt how to add and some of the children learnt new methods for adding numbers together. We created new story maps from ‘Stone Age Boy’ ready to begin writing it this week. As ever, the children had a great time in QUEST, ran by our wonderful Teaching assistants, where they did everything from; a science experiment to creating Stone Age tools. The children have also just been told about a brilliant website: https://www.j2e.com/j2code/ to learn about computing. This week sees Number Day happening on Friday and we are raising money for NSPCC, so we are asking for a £1 donation for non-uniform (dressing up in numbers, shapes or patterns) and money for number snacks.
Monday 21st January
One more week gone and lots more learning learning completed. In English the children have now got their ideas recorded for their brand new story based on ‘Stone Age Boy’. In maths, the children have been trying to get their heads around fractions. They have tried very hard and we will keep up our practise of them during maths meetings. During QUEST time the children have been choosing their own learning; from creating monsters to designing and making their own Stone Age tools. Please look at our gallery and twitter to see their wonderful work. See you next week; thanks for reading.

Well……..that’s our first week back sorted, and what a brilliant week we’ve had. We had a wonderful time on Monday as we enjoyed our sparkling start to our new theme; ‘Between a Rock and a Hard Place’. This is all about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. The children engaged brilliantly and you did a fantastic job as parents, dressing them up. We made a woolly mammoth each, did some finger painting, investigated Stone Age poo, built our own homes and engaged in a bit of drama. Find pictures of the day in the gallery. For the rest of the week we continued to learn about our our new theme by; learning the story ‘Stone Age Boy’, creating a large time line for a display and making our own fossils. You’re child has been a brilliant learner this week and I am very proud of their learning behaviour. Well done Robins. On to next week!
Monday 17th December
What an incredibly busy week! Dress rehearsals on Monday, two performances on Tuesday, the Pantomime on Wednesday, a little breather on Thursday and then Decoration day with our brilliant parents and Christmas dinner on Friday. In between all this, each Robin has created their own story in their hot write books and recapped how to add and subtract. I’m extremely proud of all the children in Robin’s and the rest of the school for their brilliant performances in the play and their behaviour at the pantomime. Well done guys and lets enjoy our last two days together before the Christmas holiday.
Monday 10th December
What a busy week it has been with the Christmas play! You’re children have done a great job learning their lines (if they had some), learning the songs and joining in well with pulling the Christmas play together. In the middle of all that, Robin’s class have been making their own stories based on Babushka, which they will be writing this week. They have also learnt about shape and how to tell the time. It was great to see some of them at the Christmas fair and we now look forward to our plays on Tuesday, the pantomime on Wednesday and Decoration Day on Friday. Look on twitter for more immediate notifications.
Monday 26th November
What another busy week in Robins class! We have tried our hardest to learn the story of Babushka, which involved Mr Raynor and Mrs Woolnough dressing up as a king and an old lady. This week we’ll be thinking about how we can change the story to write our own. In maths, we have cemented our understanding of multiply and divide. For some children it was about learning about what the symbols mean (x, we call lots of and ÷, we call shared by), although they have lots of other names but for others we learnt about what happens when we multiply or divide by 10 or 100. Quest time has seen lots of independent learning completed and two children have received chance cards for completing lots of challenges. This week sees the children really get to grips with the Christmas play, learning the songs and/or lines.
Monday 19th November
We have had a great week! This has been largely due to being able to make Fifteens (the biscuits the children made for Children in Need) and getting to wrap a Teddy in different materials and dunk him in water to find out which of them were waterproof. This was as well as learning about multiplication, division and adjectives. The children watched PJ Masks as part of their learning and listened to a counting in 3s version of ‘Up town funk you up.’ Then there is all the fantastic learning I have seen in the QUEST room and during our Tuesdays home learning circles. What a great time Robins are having! Let’s keep it up!
Monday 5th November
This week has seen our visit to King’s Lynn. The children had a brilliant time walking around the town, learning about the different buildings and sharing their thoughts and ideas. We have then written a recount; learning about the importance of editing (looking for and fixing mistakes) and re drafting (writing it again with the mistakes fixed). We have also been swimming and managed to fit in learning about subtraction. Just another week in Robin’s class!
Monday 29th October
It has been an exciting week in Robin’s class as all our maths and English learning has been taught through different subjects. In art and design we practised different patterns and found the rule to know which one came next. We also wrote captions for our own pictures. In design and technology we wrote evaluations about Lego; what was good about it and what could be even better. Computing was all about different directions in algorithms; left, right, forwards,backwards, quarter, 90 degrees, and how to create one. In geography we compared King’s Lynn to Paris and looked at our compass directions. Lastly, in history we began to learn about the Great Fire of London. What a busy week we had!
Friday 21st September
Welcome to our first blog – Robins Class got into the swing of their Talk4Writing story by acting out a quest where we had a look around the whole school and found a strange room! We made some lovely potions using measuring in maths during Roald Dahl Day (last week). We also had a lot of fun singing different songs and watching different videos including; baby-shark and King’s Lynn in the 1950s and 1960s.
