The Robins had lots of fun making pumpkin soup. We decided to look at pumpkins because it is Autumn time. We looked at and felt the inside of the pumpkin then talked about how it felt. We then used the flesh to make the soup and talked about what other ingredients we needed to make our soup. When it was ready we tasted it and then took some home.
We have been very busy throughout October in Year 6. We finished our topic on the Ancient Greeks – we now know lots about the gods and goddesses, Spartan warriors, the Olympics and we also examined evidence to decide whether or not the Trojan War was factual, a historical legend or a myth. We have started our new geography topic and have used maps to locate the Silk Road.
In science, we made colour spectrums to investigate the fact that light is made up of all of the colours of the rainbow. We also carried out an investigation into what would happen to the size of a shadow when the distance from the light source changes. In art, we created self portraits after learning all about scale and proportion and sketching techniques.
We have been working very hard in all of our subjects and having lots of fun!

What a wonderful first half term we have had in year 1. Everyone has adjusted brilliantly to life as a Kingfisher and we would like to tell you all about our learning. In Math’s we have been learning how to represent numbers up to 10. We can now recognize words, numbers, concrete representations and we have even started to add them together! In Literacy, we have been retelling a familiar story focusing on the adventures of Pinocchio. This led us on our own little adventure as we braved the stormy seas on the pirate ship and jumped into deep, dark water. In Science we have been learning all about the human body and how different parts relate to our key senses. This led into our first investigation on how our senses can be impaired.
In Geography we have been discovering where our food comes from and why farming is so important. For PSHE we have been learning about our feelings and how we can express ourselves. In R.E we have been discovering what it means to belong and how even though we are all special and unique, we belong to many different groups. Finally, in P.E we have been working on developing our basic skills and foundations that we can build upon later in the year.
Please take a look at the pictures below.
We have all started well in Year 5. We have been looking at place value of numbers up to a million and even writing them as Roman Numerals. We are enjoying our class book “Cosmic” and writing our own versions of the key parts. We have been interested in our new history topic of The British Empire- the pupils are amazed to find out that “the sun never set on the Empire”.
In science we have loved finding out all about space and the solar system. we visited Spaceport in Liverpool and had a great time. We even had our lunch on the ferry as it crossed the Mersey.
Let’s hope we continue to enjoy our learning.
We have all settled in very well in Robins and had a very busy few weeks. We have been getting to know each other and making lots of new friends. We have enjoyed meeting Fred the class puppet and Everywhere Bear, tried lots of different fruits and vegetables in our PE lessons and learned new songs in our music lessons with Mrs Shirley. We have been learning new sounds in phonics, all about ourselves in topic, concentrating on the numbers 1-3 in maths and learning our school rules.
