In Reception and Key Stage 1 all children learn phonics in line with the Jolly Phonics scheme.
What a busy term we have had in Robin class! The children have worked really hard this term and all completed their KS1 SATS which is a huge achievement. So well done Robins!
Our topic this term was pirates. We completed a range of pirate activities including drawing and designing a pirate flag and painting a seascape picture. To celebrate our end of term we had a pirate dress up day!
To celebrate the royal wedding we had a whole school tea party outside. The weather was beautiful and it was a lovely way to celebrate. We even had a visit from Meghan and Harry!!
We had lots of fun in our PE lessons this term. We were thinking about balancing, jumping and different ways of moving. We worked on a range of gymnastics equipment, including the wall bars and ropes.
In addition to this, we designed and made our own pirate treasure maps. We then worked in groups to program the bee-bots to reach different areas on our map.
This term we continued our work on Africa but based our English work around Roald Dahl, in particular Georges Marvellous Medicine. We celebrated world book day by coming to school dressed as our favourite book character. The highlight from term 4 had to be Science week. We enjoyed a week of science talks, experiments and activities and ended the week with a fantastic science fair in our school hall. It was brilliant. A big well done to Megan who received the award for ‘Scientist of the Week’.
We have had a fantastic term learning about Africa. We have completed lots of map work including finding and labelling all the African countries using an atlas.
We were so lucky to have two visitors into school who taught us African drumming, singing and dancing. It was so much fun!
We also had another visitor from the 'Helping Rhinos' charity. She explained to us how Rhinos are being hunted for their horns and if this didn't stop in just 10 years time Rhinos would be extinct. We found this really sad so we decided to create a 'helping rhinos' poster to persuade people to help.
