Robins visiting Devonport Library:


Welcome to the 4th term in Foundation!


This term our topic is all about SPACE! We will be thinking about what it is like to visit space, who has been there and reading the very funny story 'Aliens Love Underpants!'

by Clare Freeman and Ben Cort.


We will be learning about adding and subtracting, shapes and positional language (forwards, backwards, underneath, inside, on top etc) in maths.

We will be continuing to learn new sounds and blending these into words in Read, Write Inc.

P.E. is every Thursday for Robins so everyone needs a full P.E. kit

(Shorts, t shirt, socks and trainers).

Homework is given out each Friday and should be returned by the following week.

Book bags should be brought to school every day with their RWI and reading record inside.

9.3.2020: We have had a really busy week this week, writing our letter to the Children at a school in South Africa. Well done to everyone for their superb writing! You have absolutely blown our socks off this term :) We also had fun exploring different ways to move in PE in the hall this week. We talked about moving around the hall like different animals; crawling, rolling, stomping, slithering etc.

5.3.2020: Happy WORLD BOOK DAY!




Happy Birthday Ellie! :-) We hope you enjoyed making your cake today.


2.3.2020: This week we have started planting our seeds to grow flowers for our mothers for Mother's Day. We chose to grow pansies and need to make sure that they get lots of sun light and we water them regularly, but not too much.

24.2.2020: Welcome back to a new term at Mount Wise Primary School. This term foundation will be learning all about SPACE. Can you have a think about what you would like to find out this term?


10.2.2020: We mixed colours and painted our favourite Fairytale characters for display. 

3.2.2020: This week we have been learning about Floating and Sinking, as the big troll is back! and this time the clever Billy goats want to build a raft so they don't need to go over the bridge and be eaten by the troll. We thought about the different properties of materials and why some things floated and some things sunk.

27.1.2020: This week we continued our learning about The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and created trolls using clay and sticks. We thought about what he looked like and how we could create a mean and angry looking trolls using the clay tools.

20.1.2020: We have been busy bees this week playing with the bridge in the garden, acting as trolls and goats as part of our storytelling. We took it in turns to be the troll and scare the goats away but the big goat was too big and too brave for the nasty troll!

13.1.2020: This week in Robin class we have been learning the days of the week by singing a song to help us remember the names and the order. We have been busy stepping the sequence to the story of 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' in Storytelling as a whole class. We are going to use this to help us to write our own monster story. We have started to learn about gymnastics and movement in PE.


6.1.2020: Welcome back and HAPPY NEW YEAR! We are starting the year with a new theme; What is a traditional/fairy tale? And have been looking at old stories that we already know. We will be focusing on The Three Billy Goats Gruff and using this as a theme throughout all of our learning. Well done to everyone who did work over the holidays and read lots at home. 

16.12.2019: This week is the final week before the Christmas Holidays. We had a jam-packed week with our Christmas Party, Choir in the hall with the rest of the school and we had a visit from Santa because of all of our hard work this year!

11.11.19: Today we remembered people who died for our country during the war. We created poppy headbands and wore these to the Remembrance Assembly with the rest of the school and had 1 minute of silence to think about people who lost their lives.

28.10.19 This week we celebrated Halloween and had a Halloween party in Foundation with decorations, fancy dress and games! We had such a spooky time, well done for everyone getting involved. Lots of very scary costumes!

14.10.10: Well done to everyone who took part in this week's homework and created a little red hen at home! These were absolutely FANTASTIC and we were blown away with the effort put in by everyone. WELL DONE!

30.9.19: This week the Robins worked really hard to write their name as neatly as possible using a three-finger pencil grip close to the tip of the pencil. Holding our pencil correctly can be tricky, so we are practising this every day. Take a look at Lilianna's fantastic name writing in her book this week...

23.9.19: Another busy week in Robin class. We have settled so well into our new class, and well done to all those children are come in without any fuss and get straight to writing their name and are ready to learn! We have been learning to recognise the numbers we can count to this week, and practised using the number fans to represent numbers. Some children even worked with a partner to create two digit numbers! Great work Robins!

16.9.19: We have continued learning about the story of The Little Red Hen this week and started stepping the story and retelling it as a group. We have ordered the story and talked about what happened in each part. For homework this week, Robins brought in pictures of themselves as a baby. We talked about what makes us 'us' and who we live with in our family. 

13.9.2019: This week Robins were practising their pencil hold skills. It was tricky at first, but we are practising to use our 3 finger pencil grip. We learnt where things are kept around the classroom on a class treasure hunt and made some new friends during choosing time. What a busy week, well done Robins!

6.9.19: Welcome to Mount Wise Primary School!

This is a new term and a new start for many children in the Robin class. Welcome to the school and we look forward to starting the Autumn term and making some new friends. This week we have been getting to know each other, our teacher and our teaching assisstant. We have learnt about rules that help to keep us safe and happy in school. For homework this week, we will be bringing in baby photos of ourselves to talk about with our peers.

Welcome to the school Robin class :-)

Robins 2018- 2019

1.7.19: The Robins have been very busy completing their best writing of their invented superhero stories. We thought of our own super vegetables (inspired by 'Supertato') and used this character in a superhero story. The children really enjoyed thinking of their own characters and what mischief they got up to!

24.6.19: This week the Robins have been experimenting with colour mixing using paint. We learnt that when we mix two or more colours, we can make new colours. When we mixed all the colours it made brown.

17.6.19: This week we had two Birthdays; Oliwia and Ebony. We celebrated by making a birthday cake for the girls. The Robins were great at helping to measure and mix the four ingredients that we needed: flour, butter, sugar and eggs. We decorated the cake with lemon icing and wrote 'happy birthday' on the top. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRLS!

Happy Birthday Oliwia and Ebony!

10.6.19: This week the Robin class have been learning to use money in a shop. The counted pennies and bought different items in the shop. Some children counted the correct change if people paid too much. Well done Robins, great counting.

What we are learning...
