This half term in Robin class we have been learning about countries around the world. We have learnt about Italy, India and Kenya. The children have enjoyed experiencing activities and foods from different countries.

Spring term 2021:

This term has been a little different as we have been learning online over zoom.

We have been working lots on our phonics and numbers 1-20 and have enjoyed going on both number and phonics hunts. We’ve also been learning about 2D shapes.

We have also been looking at lots of stories, in particular The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Here is some of our home learning linked to the story:

Autumn term 2020:

This term we have been looking at changes. We have enjoyed going on walks looking for signs of autumn.

We have also been learning how to be a good friend, how to share and take turns and how to play with one another.

Christmas time in Robins has been lots of fun! We decorated the Christmas tree and enjoyed making Christmas cake and mince pies.

This term, we have been learning all about ‘Creatures Big and Small’. We have had fun learning about different animals living in different places. We’ve looked at animals that live in oceans, jungles, forests, rivers and farms. We’ve even learnt about animals that live in very cold places like Antarctica.

On some of our offsite visits, we have got to see different animals. At Cedars Park we had an animal and plant hunt and at Wildwoods garden centre we got to see lots of different fish.

We also enjoyed looking after Flossy, our school rabbit. All of the children helped prepare her cage with newspaper as well as giving her food and water. They all loved stroking her too!

What an amazing first term Robins have had!! Each and every one of you has settled into Middleton beautifully and has made amazing progress over the term. Robins have loved learning about Hot and Cold this term and particularly enjoyed their visit from the firefighters.

We have also loved all of our visits to Santa, we were very lucky to see him twice this year!! Once at Tyndall’s Grotto and once at school!

We would also like to say how proud we are of all the children for how well they sang and performed during our Christmas Performance. A very successful first term – Well Done Robins!!

 Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
