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!!
