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.
