Offmore Primary School

Robins

Welcome to Robins page!

Your class teacher is Mrs DiMambro and Mrs Little with an amazing Teaching Assistant, Mrs. Shone.

The children have settled in so well and are already beginning to develop more independent learning skills.

We have PE on Mondays and Fridays so please make sure you come in your kit. On Fridays we visit Forest school so please make sure your wellies are in school.

 

Expectations

We expect the children to be reading at least three times per week at home and for it to be recorded in their reading diary. Please make sure the books and diaries come into school on a Thursday for us check and sign. When your child has read three times, they will receive a star on a chart in the classroom. As soon as they have five stars, they will get a prize. Please keep up the good work and keep loving those books!

It can include any genre of book, comics, newspapers, fiction, non-fiction or whatever takes their fancy.  We just want it to be a pleasurable time for them and to develop a love of reading.  We really enjoy listening to the children's conversations about the books they are enjoying at home.

 

Homework

Homework and spellings are set on a Monday via Google Classroom. Please send back via Google Classroom by the following Monday. The homework is to support and extend what they have been learning about in class. Spellings will be sent home via Google Classroom on a Monday and tested the following Monday. A star will be given for effort and progress and when they have five stars they will receive a prize. Please keep practising at home. 

 

Please make sure you are connected to Dojo so we can keep in contact easily. We will be uploading lots of pictures on our class story to show you what has been happening in Robins.

 

Our Topics

Autumn- Animal Antics

 

This term our topic is called Animal Antics. Our intention is for the children to have an awareness of animal welfare.

The children had an exciting start to their new topic as on Tuesday and met the class pet, Leo the Lion. Where the children researched the origins of a Lion, their needs and characteristics.

So far during Literacy we have re-told the story of 'Dear Zoo' using talk for writing and the children have wrote their own innovative version of the story. After half term we will be having another special class visitor and lots of work revolving around the Forest Rescue centre. 

In Maths we have working really hard to learn about number and place value.

In Science we have been investigating life and living processes, linked to animals and humans.

In D&T we were asked to design and make an new and exciting animal biscuit. We had lots of fun taste testing biscuits to inform our ideas. Perhaps we will become biscuit makers when we are older?

As a key stage we are collecting lots of pet food to create a huge mountain to donate to the local charity.

We have also loved learning how to create an animal collage, using the inspirational artist Megan Coyle.
