We are having a great week of learning in Robinson class.
In English we have begun our new talk for writing unit, to write a lost and found story. We are using the story ‘Dogger’ by Shirley Hughes to help us learn how to write a lost and found story. The children started the week by attending a school fayre which is the main setting of our story. We have learnt the opening and build up and cannot wait to find out more about Dave and Dogger’s adventures.
In Maths, we have been learning to add two two digit numbers together by partitioning the tens and the ones. The children have used lots of different concrete resources to support their learning and loved being shopkeepers by adding up different amounts.
On Tuesday we baked remembrance cookies. The children worked hard to measure, mix and bake the cookies. Once they had cooled we mixed icing sugar and food colouring to create a red icing to decorate our cookies. They were delicious and lots of people around school were wondering what the amazing smell was!!
We have begun our History unit about significant people. We have thought about who is significant in our lives and why. This will lead on to learning about Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell.
We had a wonderful day in forest school yesterday. The children made nature poppies and had the challenge of building a tower using natural resources. They had to work as a team to collect and shape the tower which as great to see. Lots of the children then took part in imaginative play. The boys created a hospital were they would act as doctors or the ambulance service to help the other children. The girls decided to create a food shop that sold very spicy food. It was a wonderful afternoon.
Great work Robinson class.
