Robins have started their inquiry by looking at the different stages of human development. The children bought in pictures of themselves as babies, we then played a game where we had to match their names to the pictures. Can you see how we have changed?
On Monday the children learnt about Remembrance Day and why we have a two minute silence. We talked about how this made us feel. The conversations we had inspired the children to make their own poppies and poppy pictures.
Last week Robins learnt about the Hindu festival Diwali. The children learnt the story about Rama and Sita as well as making their own Diva lamps, Rangoli patterns and firework pictures.
Robins had a great first parental engagement session. Story time, hot chocolate and cake… Perfect!
This week Robins have been reading the story Owl Babies. We have been thinking about how the characters were feeling at different points during the story. We created paintings to represent this and made yummy nest cakes too.
Since lunch on Monday Robins have been rather excited about banana cake. They’ve been pretending to make it in the role play area and with play dough too. Today, we decided to make real banana cakes. The children had great fun measuring ingredients, mixing, baking and tasting!
On Tuesday we had our first reading session with parents/carers. It was lovely to see the children so engaged with reading. We look forward to seeing you again next week.
Robins have been fantastic risk-takers this week. They have been making bridges from the large blocks outside. They have been very thorough checking the bridge is safe before crossing it.
Robins had great fun on ‘Talk like a pirate’ day. They made their own ship, hats and treasure maps. AHOY Captain!
This week Robins have been interested in finding out about the human skeleton. They have been fantastic inquirers by asking questions to deepen their learning.
Robins have had a fantastic first week settling into school life. They have been busy making new friends and exploring the inside and outside learning environment.
