Robins were critical thinkers today when they were given the question “What would happen if it snowed every day?”
The class brain stormed their ideas about the positives, negatives, any questions, other comments and observations.
There were lots of interesting discussions and really thoughtful ideas shared.
Super to see these Robins all complete their number clubs this week,
During circle time with Mrs Sargant today, We discussed this month’s value word ‘tolerance’.
Robins were asked what they thought tolerance means:
Katie – To respect other peoples behaviour
Shayla – To respect peoples beliefs
Cara – To put up with things that others do or say
They were then asked when they had shown tolerance.
During circle time today with Mrs Sargant, Robins were discussing this months value word responsibility.
– “When I finally get my tooth taken out.”
Robins went outside this morning for circle time.
They started off by playing a game, where they had to change places with someone without talking to them. They had to make eye contact with the person they wished to change places with and nod at them.
They played another game that involved one person standing in the middle of the circle saying something that they are good at. Anyone who thought that they are also good at it changed places with them.
Fabian – I am a good goal keeper.
Sahara – I am good at English.
Elizabeth – I am good at maths.
Kian – I am good at parkour/freerunning.
Miss McClelland then asked what the value word is this month and what does it mean? Courage!
Nimca – To have courage to stand up for what you believe in.
Lola – Have the courage to say no if you don’t want to do something.
Then they were asked, if they could think of a time when they may have to show courage in the future?
Emily – I’m going to a new dance class and I’ve never danced in front of anyone else before.”
Elizabeth –“When my granddad has to go to hospital.”
In Circle Time today, Robins talked about the things that they could and couldn’t do in Year 1 compared to what they can do in Year 4.
Miss McClelland then asked what Robins thought were good traits of being mature and how they show that they are mature now. Each child then decided on one thing they could work on to become more mature.
There were some very grown up conversations had and the children showed that they know when they are immature.
As Queen Elizabeth II turns 90 today, Year 4 looked at a range of photos covering her whole life and then considered what they would like to ask if they ever met her.
Imagine the Queen walked into the classroom now… what questions would you like to ask her?
During RE circle time, Miss McClelland asked examples of rules they have to follow in school or at home.
In circle time with Miss McClelland, Robins were discussing British Values.
Robins, all agreed that British Values are about everyone following rules.
Why do we set rules?
To make the world a better place. – Josh T
So people don’t get hurt. – Evan
Keeping Safe. – Sky
Without rules there would be chaos. – Hanson
How would we go about making new rules?
The Government make lots of new rules, when they do this they have a debate.
What rules would be needed to have a debate?
Hanson – Respect
Lola – Listen
Carley – Speak politely
Omari – Teamwork
Casey – No shouting
Josh T – Wait until someone has finished speaking
Kyann – Be fair
Aisha – Think before you speak
Evan – Don’t interrupt people
Hazel – Speak clearly

During Circle Time with Miss McClelland the Robins talked about something new that they would like to learn.
Robins then discussed things they found hard. Some found spellings and maths difficult; some said they found their handwriting hard. Some people told us how they had overcome their difficulties.
