We are Robins Class and we have a mixture of Year 1’s and Year 2’s. We love P.E and doing different science experiments. Playing outside is one of our favourite things to do so we enjoy using the outdoor classroom!
Autumn Term 2017
Museum of Science & Industry
Just before half term Robins went on a class trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. Our main purpose for going was to see the robot exhibition, where there were over 100 robots!
We also got to watch a show called ‘Robots vs Humans’, which involved robots and humans carrying out tasks to see which one is better. The children were able to join and they even had a dance off with a robot. The humans won!
The children really enjoyed the trip and they learnt lots about different types of robots, what robots can be used for and how robots are different to humans.
On Open Day, Robins were exploring the five senses of taste, touch, smell, sound and sight.
We tasted different types of foods to decide what they were, such as sweet, sour or bitter.
To explore sound, we played Chinese Whispers. Sight was tested by wearing blindfolds and having to follow friends’ instructions to piece jigsaws together. Lastly, the sense of smell was challenged by guessing what things were, by smelling them.
