Minibeast Madness

Robins have been intrepid explorers this term hunting for bugs at Forest School as part of our Minibeast topic. The children have learnt so many fantastic facts from information books and the internet as well as learning to retell one of our favourite stories 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carle. We had an amazing trip to Stratford Butterfly Farm and finished our topic with an Ugly Bug Ball dress up day during which we shared lots of our learning with parents and the rest of the school in our class assembly.

Robins round-up

Here is a taste of the things Robins have been up to this term. As part of our 'Off We Go!' topic we made and flew paper aeroplanes, we also hopped on a bus to Winchcombe to visit the library, post letters to our Big Friends and play in the park. The school nursed visited to teach us about keeping healthy and we visited the Explorer Dome in the village hall to find out about space and the stars. Our Big Friend Bake Off was great fun, if a little messy, and the chocolate biscuits were delicious. We made bird feeders for the front garden and at Forest School to help look after wildlife in the Winter.

Robins have enjoyed listening to stories told by many members of staff over the last couple of weeks.

The Gingerbread Man

This week Robins began their new topic 'Once upon a time' with the story of The Gingerbread Man. We acted out the story, drew maps and baked our own gingerbread biscuits. Which bit of him would you eat first? Most of the Robins decided to start with his head but some chose his legs so he couldn't run away again!
