We watched to see the eggs hatch, whilst we learnt about the life cycle of chickens. We enjoyed handling the new chicks and produced some amazing free writing inspired by our experience.
The run up to Christmas has been exciting, eventful and full of lovely learning!
The parents joined us for a learning hunt and made seasonal decorations.
We had more than one visit from Santa...and he brought us puzzles and colouring pens which we have already been enjoying.
We enjoyed a Christmas party with dancing and games.
The children made beautiful cards and calendars to give to their families.
We went to church to learn about the birth of the baby Jesus and sing songs which we had performed to our families in four nativity performances earlier in the week.
We had a musician from Hampshire Music Service that came to show us the woodwind family and explain how the instruments make different notes. We were able to identify the instruments and liked the alto saxophone best. We described the sounds as ‘sweet, smooth and jazzy’.

Our literacy focus is based on a book called The Queen's Hat and this week the children have been learning about capital letters for names (proper nouns) and our capital city. The children had a game to write London on a note and stick it on an outline of the UK . Well done Ellie who was closest! We hope all the Robins will know more about the geography of our country soon! This coming week we will be using prepositions in our writing and extending our sentences with the conjunction 'and'. Wonderful work Robins! Well done.
