Welcome Robins 2022!

Welcome back.
What a wonderful start to the year by Robins. They were so smart, happy…and tall!
Having settled in Robins took the opportunity to walk around school, refamiliarise themselves with routines and had a lovely session in the library. There are lots of new books and it was a good opportunity to delve into some of the new titles.
The children were given an overview of the week, with key things to remember:
  1. 8.50-3.30 for the school day
  2. Brass lesson on Mondays
  3. PE on Wednesdays (kit can be brought in and left in on Mondays)
  4. Reading record– these will be collected in and checked. Children should be reading for at least 10 minutes a day.
   4. Targets: 10 mins reading a day, at least 2 Common Exception Words to be reviewed/learnt each day.
       5. Things to know: Dinner menu online This week is WEEK 1, Blogs– a great way to interact with classes.
The children also discussed Online Safety and completed the Online Safety acceptable use policy agreement.
A great start to the day and the year. We are all looking forward to a fun packed year of hard work and learning.

Share and tell – circle time

During circle time Max shared a letter he wrote about the importance of the environment.(persuasive letter) He also shared a poster (Information text).  Both have made use of skills learnt in English.




As Part of PHSE and circle time- Mr Lo gave Robins a challenge to prove they could work together. Many thought it would be easy but found it more difficult.  The task was to think of a move in your group and then perform the move in-sync with the others in your group. This presented many challenges including

  1. What to do when you all come up with different moves?
  2. Who should we follow? Can we follow them? How can we ensure our move is also synchronised to the music?
  3. Can we work together to synchronise without conflict?

Take a sneak peak below!


Not to my taste!

In PHSE we discussed how we are all connected.

Firstly, we talked to our partners to find out similarities. Then we talked about respecting differences.

Next, we talked about the importance of tolerating differences. Mr Lo also showed how we should respect different opinions and how to politely express something you don’t like. In the activity we explored food from around the world and then commented on it.

Finally, we explored how technology helps us all stay connected.
