Robins fly to Spain

Tuesday 8th January 2019

Robins have started their new topic this week about Spain. We talked about where Spain is and how we would get there. The children were very good at suggesting transport we could use, such as flying, driving, train or coach. We decided it would be too far to walk!

This afternoon we set up an airport and a plane to Madrid. Most of the children were passengers and the rest were staff at the airport and on the plane.

Drama with years 1 and 2

In the Woods  by Chris Wormell

The children in years 1 and 2 listened to the story 'In the Woods' and then they made 'freeze frames' depicting parts of the story.  I was really pleased how the children talked together to work out how they would create their scenes, well done, DC.

'The wolf looked up and found himself surrounded by hundreds and hundreds of other teddy bears'.

'Soon they came to a place where the trees were crooked and twisted, 
with branches like claws'. 

'Once there were three teddy bears who went for a walk in the woods'.

 '......nearly all the teddy bears were snoozing after eating as much food as they possibly could'.

'The wolf was standing right over them; his cruel yellow eyes staring 
and his enormous sharp teeth gleaming in his mouth'.

'Further on, the wolf found another apple core and another and soon he was following
a trail of banana skins and orange peel and sandwich corners'.,

'They all rolled and bumped and bounced and landed in a jumbled heap'.

Robins have some guests

Wednesday 28th November

Robins were very excited this morning to host some visitors. The Reception and Year 1 children from Antingham and Southrepps School came to spend the morning with us along with a parent from their school, Ginny, who told us the story of 'The Three Trees' which is about how Christians celebrate Christmas.

The children listened very attentively to the story. They then made some decorations related to the three trees: a pine cone angel, a stick cross and a wooden boat.

It was lovely to spend the morning with our friends from Antingham and Southrepps.

Robins presented their assembly this afternoon to the rest of the school and parents. It was all about the 'most famous lifeboatman of them all', Henry Blogg.

There was a visit to the Henry Blogg museum by Otto and Freya.......................

............and then Y2s told the story of one of Henry Blogg's most famous rescues - of the Pyrin and the Fernebo, on a stormy night in 1917.

Y1s provided fantastic sound effects.........

 ..........and told us some facts about Henry Blogg.

Mrs Page and I are SO proud of Robins - we could hear every word and the children were so confident!!
