I know it is only the second week but the children are so settled into Robins it could be much later in the term. Our star of the week this week is Tyler. Being ready with a positive attitude is key to success and Tyler has this in abundance.
Maths: We have been increasing our knowledge of numbers to 10. We have represented numbers in different ways and they been able to discover missing numbers on a number line. This week children had to work as a team to solve a maths puzzle. It was great to see not just their maths knowledge but also how well they can listen to their peers.
Literacy: This week, we have continued our story The Gigantic Turnip. We have created a character description for the Old Man and next week children will write their own character description. We have really focused on capital letters at the start of sentences and our daily kinetic letters lesson is paying off as all children are showing big improvements in their handwriting.
PSHE: This week we explored some of our class rules. The children were able to say why we have rules and what the rules of our classroom should be. I have been very impressed to see these rules in practise this week.
ICT: For the first time this year Robins using the IPads. We discussed online safety and keeping our passwords safe from others. Children used Purple Mash software and created an avatar of themselves. They then saved a piece of work they had drawn. Fantastic first lesson Robins.
Just a reminder that on Tuesday at 19:00 there will be an online parent’s information meeting. I hope to see you all there. Have a wonderful weekend and see you all on Monday.

Wow! What an amazing week we have had in Robins. All of the children have settled in well and have really impressed us with their listening and learning. Robins sat in whole school assembly for the first time since joining the school. It was fantastic to see them sit with the rest of the school and participate in the assemblies. I’m sure they are all exhausted after their first week.
Each week I will use this blog to give a snap shot of what we have been doing in class.
Maths- Children have been sorting items into different groups and counting them. It has been fantastic to see how much the children remember from their time in Wrens
Literacy: We have begun to look at our story The Gigantic Turnip. Children have acted it out and had fun retelling the story to their friends.
History: This week it was fantastic for children to be able to share toys from their past. Children were able to identify that the toys they had when they were babies are not the same as the toys they have now. Thank you all for sending pictures, bringing in toys and talking to your children about their favourite toys before this lesson; it really helped to bring our History topic to life.
Reading books and reading records were sent home yesterday; please remember to write in their reading record if they read at home. Have a wonderful and restful weekend. See you Monday.
