We had a FABULOUS time at the zoo yesterday! We got to see lots of animals. Our favourite animals being the elephants, sea lions and monkeys. We got to hold a stick insect, a bearded dragon and look at a lions skull. We had a picnic near the elephants and orangutans which was lots of fun!

We’re going to the airport…

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday Jul 1, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have been writing all about our holidays. Mrs Gunn came in to talk to us all about DisneyWorld and we wrote about our favourite Disney characters. We made our own passport, wrote about where we have been on holiday and where we would like to go in the future. On Wednesday we got to visit the airport and fly on a plane. We had to buy our own tickets and go through passport checks and security. We all went to Disneyland and have a fabulous time!

Have a great weekend!

Aliens are coming!

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday Jun 24, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have had so much fun with aliens! We have been reading lots of books about aliens and even had an email from a real alien called Arego! Arego needed our help finding his family dog Wilberforce. We have made wanted posters, wrote an email back to Arego saying we are happy to help him find Wilberforce, and designed our own aliens. We even had an alien visit us in school on Wednesday. He were playing with all our toys outside but then we scared him off! We were very excited to see a real alien!

Next week is writing week and we will be looking at different ways of travelling and different holidays we have been on. Have a great weekend!

We’re going on a bear hunt!

Posted by srobinsonunity on Monday Jun 20, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Over the last week we have been reading ‘we’re going on a bear hunt’ by Michael Rosen and ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson. We went on our own little trip to the Rock Gardens to see if we could find any bears or the Gruffalo. We saw footprints in the mud and found the bears house but we couldn’t see any bear! We also found a hole in the tree that the snake and fox live in but we didn’t find the Gruffalo! Hopefully next time!

Have a great week

Our Queen

Posted by srobinsonunity on Thursday Jun 9, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have been celebrating the birthday of the Queen and learning about her and her family. We have been writing down all the information that we know about her. We have written letters to the Queen telling her about our families and what we get up to in our classroom. We have all made a crown ready to wear for our picnic tomorrow, which we are all really excited about!

We have also been to the life bus and learnt about the importance of keeping our bodies and mind healthy and strong. We joined in the whole school mile run and Zumba which was lots of fun!

Have a lovely weekend :)

A is for Africa

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday May 27, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have continued to learn about Africa.

We have been using the iPads and laptops in class to research and look at pictures of Africa. We now know what African homes and schools look like and that Africa is much bigger than England. We know that some places in Africa don’t have much money and some people live in one room and don’t have a lot of food, clean water or clothing.

This week we said goodbye to our chicks who have left to go to their new home in the allotment. We can’t wait to see them again!

A BIG thank you to all the family members that came in for our African crafts. We had so much fun and we hope you did too!

Have a great half term!

Handa’s Surprise

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday May 20, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have been reading Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne. It’s all about a little girl who lives in Africa and walks to her friends village to take her some fruit but something happens along the way! Ask me what?

We used the World Wide Web to research the differences between Africa and England and we now know that Africa is a lot hotter than England and that their houses are sometimes made out of straw and mud!

We tried the fruit that was in our story. We had oranges, bananas, guava, mango, avocado pear, pineapple and passion fruit. Our favourite fruit were the orange, banana, mango and pineapple as they were “juicy” and “delicious.” We didn’t like the avocado as it was “creamy” and “disgusting!” We also weaved our own baskets and tried to balance them on our head. We let our butterflies go this week.

Next week we are inviting in Parents, Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles etc into class to join us on our African adventures. We hope to see you there :)

Under The Sea

Posted by srobinsonunity on Thursday May 12, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have read lots of books about creatures that live under the sea. Some of our favourite books have been Shark in the Park, The Singing Mermaid and Sharing a Shell. We have been very busy making lots of jellyfish and octopuses.

We have had lots of fun in the sun this week but we need to remember to drink plenty of water, wear our sunhats and sun cream to keep us safe.

Have a lovely weekend!

Pirates life for me :)

Posted by srobinsonunity on Thursday May 5, 2016 Under Uncategorized

Over the last two weeks we have been interested in Pirate and under the sea. We have read lots of different pirate books, our favourite being ‘Pirates love underpants.’ We enjoyed acting out the story with Miss Holmes and Miss Sim.

As you may have seen we have had 7 new friends this week. We love having our chicks in class and getting to hold them :)

“They are warm.”

“The chicks hatch out of their eggs and will become hens.”

“The chicks are tickly.”

“The chicks felt comfy and soft.”

Our new friends :)

Posted by srobinsonunity on Friday Apr 22, 2016 Under Uncategorized

This week we have been looking at the changes in the environment and have some new friends. We have been looking after tadpoles, caterpillars and chick eggs. We have been talking about the life cycle of a frog and butterfly. Ask me all about it.

We have been reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle. In the book he eats lots of healthy and unhealthy items. We got to try lots of yummy fruit.

Children’s quotes

“I only want two things as I don’t like anything else.”

“I love the watermelon it’s so sweet.”

“The cheese was yummy.”

“I like strawberries. I don’t like pears its disgusting.”

Have a great weekend :)
