WOW! Robins’ had so much fun this week dressing up as bugs for ‘The Ugly Bug Ball’. They played party games, dressed up and even had a picnic with wiggly worms. Robins’ have worked super hard this half term on their ‘Minibeasts’ topic and really deserved a celebration. Well Done!
All week Robins’ have a been working hard to create their own butterfly garden’s. We have planned, made and discussed what we might put in them to attract butterflies. We learnt that flowers would be a good thing to put in them as butterflies drink nectar.
Today Robins’ created their own gigantic insects using paint. We enjoyed creating these outside in the sunshine along with the creepy crawlies around us! They looked bold and realistic once we had finished with them. Make sure you have a peep at them in our classroom.
We had a fantastic time in the woods this week with Mrs Jesse. She let us build our own minibeasts using things from the forest. The bugs were even bigger than her!
Today we read the story ‘Lulu Ladybird’ and drew a huge picture of her. Robins’ then added word around her to describe her appearance and personality. Believe it or not… Robins’ writing is getting better than Miss Hall’s and it is really starting to bug her!
Today we had an unexpected visit from Mrs Moreton and her new puppy Zooki.
Today we set up a ‘Minibeast Cafe’ with crisps, ham, yoghurt, cheese and sweets. We were investigating which food was the tastiest for the bugs. Believe it or not sweets were the most popular food (not only for the bugs)! Robins’ decided this was because it was sugary.
Today we explored the story ‘The Bad Tempered Ladybird’. Robins’ found out that he was very grumpy and always wanted a fight! After we had read the story, we created our own story map on the carpet.
Who knew that Robins’ could make their very own wormery?
Today we collected mud, sand and leaves to make a layered wormery for the worms to live in for the next week. Robins’ then found some worms and added them into the bottle. Take a look…
We are now excited scientists to see what happens over the next few days.
Robins’ went to the woods to search for some bugs today. They found a spider, a worm and lots of woodlice. They used pots and plastic spoons to capture and study the bugs. Then we released back into the wild. We are very excited to start our new minibeast topic!
Today Robins’ received a letter from Peter Rabbit. He was so impressed with our hard working this term that he left some golden Peter Rabbit eggs for us to find. Have a lovely 2 week break and HAPPY EASTER ROBINS!
Today Robins’ toasted hot cross buns and then tasted them. We learnt that the cross on top of the bun respresents Jesus. They were delicious!
It was very eggciting today as Robins’ completed their first ever egg roll competition. They did an eggcellent job with rolling and decorating their eggs. We look forward to the whole school finals on fryday!
We’ve finally found the treasure and Robins’ were so excited to find out what was in the treasure box! Use your pirate eye (the one without the eye patch) and take a look yourself..
Robins looked fantastic in their crazy wigs and red clothes in aid of Red Nose Day.
Today Robins’ became scientist. We used different liquids to see how fast our duck could slide down the ramp. Guess what… water made the duck move down the ramp the fastest (2 seconds)and syrup was the slowest (2 minutes).
Robins’ have made their own treasure maps to help them find the treasure in school. We wanted to make them look old but we couldn’t believe how many tea bags we used…
The Robins’ loved dressing up as different characters today as part of world book day. We had Fantastic Mr Fox, Alice in Wonderland and even Captain Hall and First Mate Moreton made an appearance.
We did some pirate cooking today and made treasure boxes. Robins’ melted marshmallows in the microwave and then added rice crispies with golden syrup to make them arghhbsolutley delicious! YUM!
Robins’ came in after lunch to find pirate music playing and a message in a bottle. They were arrghver so excited to find the pirate clues outside. Here is what they found…
