During our science lessons this term we have been looking at forces, push and pull. We carried out an experiment testing the affect of friction on how far a car travels. A car was put down a ramp and different materials were put at the bottom of the ramp. Then the children measured how far the car travelled, we tried carpet, sand paper, a book, foam and a door mat.

Our recent topic is Toys and our DT project has been to make our own pop up toy. We planned them first and then used many different materials to create them.

As part of our Literacy lessons on instructions we had a go at following instructions to make pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. 

We have also enjoyed hands on spelling activities, making our spellings out of Playdoh.

Spring 1 Topic Overview

Topic overview Spring 2

Welcome to Spring term in Robins Class! We are all set for an interesting few terms together. Our class teacher is Mrs Beveridge and Mrs Shoemark is our teaching assistant. 

 

Our topic this term is Pirates, built around the book The Night Pirates.

In our English lessons, we are writing pirate stories of our own and pirate poetry. We have enjoyed watching Michael Rosen perform some of his famous poems.

 

In Maths, we are focusing on place value, addition and subtraction using all sorts of manipulatives.

 

The children have been fascinated in RE when learning about Judaism and Our Bodies in Science.

 

The children enjoyed a wet and muddy afternoon in Forest School.

 

 

 

Monday 24th September 2018 

We have had a fantastic start to the term. We have all been really impressed with how the children have settled into their new routines. We have been busy working on place value in maths alongside mental maths every day. In English, we have been learning the story of Goldilocks through sequencing the story, writing 'sorry' letters and writing instructions so that Goldilocks can make her own porridge! Our topic this term is the Great Fire of London; please see the planning at the bottom of this page for a more detailed overview of what we will be learning about this term. 

 

Thank you for your support with the new homework system; we have seen a huge difference already in the mental maths skills of the children and have already had some children achieving their Triple Crown as well as getting into the Achiever's Book for their efforts with their homework. 

 

As always, please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any queries.
