Teddy bear's picnic

Our topic this week in Robins was Under the Sea.

We started the week with a visit to the Russell Hall to watch Form 6 and Form 7’s Summer Production of Sherlock and Cinders. On our return to class, we made yummy bread rolls. However, they were not just any bread rolls…they were in the shape of sea animals. The Robins were super impressed with their crabs, seahorses and sharks. To make our rolls even more interesting, we explored the school grounds to collect some rosemary. Once the rolls had cooled, we made a delivery to Mrs Tickner, Mrs Parker and Mr McCarthy. 

Continuing with our topic, the children were super creative with their A3 fish pictures. Lots of colour was added and they shared the resources beautifully.

Ready, steady, go! You have guessed it… it was our Russell Robins Sports Day and Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Tuesday. All the children did extremely well and I must say, they listened beautifully to all the instructions and most of all, they had lots of fun. It was great to see all the parents together and there was such a great atmosphere as we enjoyed the warm weather, whilst watching the children explore the Paddock area. We finished with a nice story of Rabbit Foo Foo which I think children and parents both enjoyed. You can find all the photos from the Sports Day here: bit.ly/RobinsSportsDay

The CTOUCH has been such a valuable resource this week as we explored under the sea with some relaxing mindfulness wave music, followed by a classic Disney song and lots of games. The Robins enjoyed counting the sea animals and they liked pressing the button to see if they counted the correct amount. 

It was lovely meeting one of our new Robins and his family on Thursday. The children enjoyed meeting their new friend and it was nice listening to each other’s Home/ School Journal news.

The Robins have been super busy practising for our Pre-Prep Celebration next Wednesday. We hope they have just as much fun on the day!

Finally, this will be our last bulletin of the Summer Term. As a result, it will be time to say goodbye to some of our Robins who will fledge their nest and will fly away to Nursery in September. Have a lovely summer and we look forward to welcoming our existing children and new Robins for an exciting Autumn Term. 

Happy summer holidays, everyone!
