W/C Monday 27th January 2020
On Monday the Robins were busy learning all about China, we looked at the Great Wall, Flags and where in the World China was and compared it to England. We found where different counties were on maps. We know what the Chinese flag looks like and how many stars it has. In Maths we conducted a survey of the most favourite animal of the Chinese Zodiac with the Year of the Dog being the most popular. The Robins went to ask the cygnets as well as some of the staff around the school. We then made bar charts to show our results. Well done Robins.

This week we have been exploring instructional texts. We have focussed on the key features of instructional texts; particularly time connectives (first, next, then etc) and enjoyed following instructions for making jam sandwiches and learning how to trap a dragon. Next week we will be writing our own instructions.
This week we have been learning about multiplication. We have been sorting objects into sets and then counting in 2’s, 5’s, and 10s to find the total. We have been learning about how multiplication is the same as repeated addition. We will continue to learn about multiplication next week.
Topic/ QUEST challenges
We have been learning about the importance of colour in festivals such as Chinese New Year. We have all enjoyed learning the Chinese Zodiac Story and retelling it to our friends using pictures and stick puppets. We have also worked as part of a team to find a way of ‘reaching the island’ without ‘falling into the water’.
Many children wanted to learn about Chinese writing so as the week went on we discovered and used Chinese symbols to write our own names. We also used a search engine called ‘kiddle’ to find out facts about China.

The Robins had a good first day back and enjoyed telling Mr Dowers what they had been up to over the holidays. We have been looking at time and days of the week in maths and thinking about what we do at different times of each day. After break we wrote about the fantastic presents Santa had brought the children and the very early times some of the children were up on Christmas morning!
Gymnastics Tuesday 19th November 2019
The Robin’s were in the hall today for a Gymnastics lesson with Mr Dowers. They played ‘Stuck in the Mud’ as well as balancing with some extra challenges to make it very tricky! At the end lesson the children demonstrated some fantastic forward rolls…
