Welcome to Robins!
We are Reception and Year 1 children, our teacher is Mrs West who is supported by Miss Riddler, Mrs Coupland, Mrs McDonald and Miss Tobin.
Welcome to the Robins Class of 2018.
Primary Pounds Enterprise Project
I am so proud of our Year 5 and 6 children. They were tasked to raise money for Harrogate based Craft Aid International. The money raised would support differently abled people in Harrogate, Ecuador and Peru. They organised themselves and ran Mad Hair Day, a cake sale and Boshop Minkton's Got Talent! What a brilliant show that was- pictures to follow.
Our children have raised £319.00 to support people in developing skills, purpose and an income.
God uses us to do His work. You are all brilliant and we are all proud of you!
What an amazing day we had at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, we were not put off by the rain. We saw lots of animals, learned lots of facts and even held some creatures!
Penny Dolan is a wonderful storyteller and author and she is visiting us! Penny has written huge amounts of books such as The Rickety Hall Stories, A boy called M.O.U.S.E, The Apple Tree Alien and Mr Pod and Mr Piccalilli. Penny will be with the Owls and then the Robins on the morning of Tuesday 21st May.
Robins class assembly........
Wow what a amazing day. The children sang and used their Makaton signing. We sold cakes after and we raised a staggering £269 for the Downs Syndrome Society. Thank you so much for all your support.
* Every Wednesday we will now be going into our woodland area. Please can you send your child with wellies and waterproof clothing.
" There's no such thing as bad weather- only the wrong clothes!"
Wind Powered Vehicles
Our wind powered vehicles are nearly completed. After designing our vehicles, then painted and added detail onto them. Most of us have completed the tricky task of sawing the wood and using the hot glue gun. Our last thing to do is to add our sails and then we will finally be able to test them out.
RSPB Bird Watch 25/1/19
Following Robins making fat balls for the birds we all went on the RSPB big bird watch. First we went looking for bugs and insects and discussed how the birds would be able to find the food. Many of the children were happy to hold the bugs helping them have a closer look at them. We then 'tried' to stay quiet to watch which birds came to visit the woodland area.
If you would like to support your child/ren in their understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG), I would like to recommend downloading the 'SPaG Gold' app. They may practise wherever you go- such fun!
It can be bought from the Apple store from £3.99 and is published by Pearson.
SPaG Gold is aimed at year 6 and lower KS3
SPaG Silver- years 3,4,5
SPaG Bronze- KS1
Other Apps. are available too! Try the Educational App Store.
Music and Movement
The Robins have enjoyed the start of our topic on weather. We have had lots of discussions about the different types of weather. Today we created a movement routine in the theme of water and rain. We have also composed a piece of music in small groups to show how music can represent the types of weather.
