Ospreys’ natural art

Ospreys took advantage of Wednesday’s good weather and created some Marvel and DC natural art. Can you work out which logo is for which superhero?

 

Greenlands’ Gladiators – Mud Glorious Mud!

A first for something else………. P.E day!

Our first P.E lesson was finally here.

eeeeeekkkk!

We warmed our bodies up first by playing the Bean Game’.

We then talked about space and spatial awareness. Then played ‘Rabbits and Burrows’.

We then used hoops and pretended that these were cars. We had to listen to instructions given and then carry these out. For example, Mrs Marriott said, ’roundabouts’ and we had to sit and spin in our cars.

We then continued to work on our listening skills, and played ‘Teacups and Saucers’.

We then worked in our teams, and did a little bit of running.

Mrs Marriott was so pleased with how quick we got ready for PE.

 

 

Road Testing our Wellies

We have had great weather lately, so we decided to road test our wellies.

We went looking for autumn leaves for some craft activities.

Team wellie photo!

 

 

Food glorious food….

We were invited to sample some of the hot school lunch options today.

Curry and rice went down a storm!

After a discussion with the children, they thought that they would choose some of these for their lunch.

A big thank you to the cooks for the lovely invite.

 

 

 

Robins get a special visit from Firefighter Laing

This week Robins are reading a book called ‘Dragon Post’.  The story is about a boy called Alex and his pet Dragon.  Unfortunately, the Dragon keeps burning objects and so Alex writes a letter to the Fire Service to ask for help.

Robins have been learning about the job of a firefighter and today, we were lucky enough to have a real life firefighter come to our classroom to visit us and to teach us about fire safety. Mr Laing made the afternoon a lot of fun and we even got to wear his helmet and have a go at using a fire extinguisher too!

Number Hunt Time

We went exploring our new school to find numbers. We obviously dressed for the occasion!

We found lots of numbers outside too!

We then ordered number cards 0- 20.

You can have your very own number hunt at home too!

 

 

Reading with Robins!

What a lovely way to start a day! Lots of grown ups reading to us and also listening to us read to them. This happens every Wednesday morning in our classroom and it is something we look forward to.   Here are a few photographs from last week.

What a ‘scorching’ start to the year in Robins!

From making our own ice lollies to drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows, Robins have had a fun-filled and busy start to the year. We launched our topic ‘Fire and Ice’ with an amazing Wow day where we made beautiful snowflakes, caused volcanoes to erupt, used a variety of media to make giant flames and played ‘ice’ hockey too. Robins have settled in very well to their new routines and are already making super progress. In our English lessons, we have been looking at explorers, reading a book entitled ‘The Great Explorer’ by Chris Judge. We even had a go at hot-seating in a drama lesson and two of the characters came to visit our classroom (see the photos). We have made parachutes, drawn our own numberlines outside in maths lessons and have been dancing like penguins. We have also sorted clothes into those that you would wear in a hot country and those which are more appropriate for a cold country. Today we have been learning how to find the Arctic and the Antarctic, using globes, maps and atlases. What a fantastic start to the new academic year. Well done Robins!!
