The children in Robins collected data from the teachers to find out what healthy breakfast they would choose to eat. The children created a variety of healthy breakfast options in groups. These included; yogurt with berries and a glass of fresh orange juice, baked beans on seeded brown toast with apple juice and corn flakes with semi-skimmed milk, a banana and a gladd of water. The children then put their options into a tally chart and went to collect the information from the teachers. When the children had collected their information they then answered questions about what they had found out. Which is the most popular healthy choice? Which option was the least healthy?
As part of Healthy Living Week the Ducklings made healthy fruit kebabs for snack time. They had to use their fine motor skills for helping to cut the fruit and their mathematical skills to make a repeating pattern with the fruit! They were very tasty indeed, especially after a morning of scootering!
The chidren had an amazing time with their scooters, learning a few stunts or two!
The Ducklings thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the sponsored fitness activities that were brilliantly set up for them by the Year 6 children. They certainly used all the different muscles in every part of their bodies!
Following on from reading Goldilocks and the three bears and as part of our healthy living week, the Ducklings have enjoyed making and tasting porridge. They were excellent at following a recipe, measuring out the different ingredients and setting the timer on the microwave.
As part of ’Health Week’ the children in Robins found out why we need to have breakfast. Looking at the healthy plate we looked at what we should include in our breakfast to make it healthy. We then had a taste test of different healthy breakfast choices. For a healthy breakfast we had a selection of; brown toast with unsalted butter and sugar free jam, crumpets, cornfalkes and wheaties with semi-skimmed milk and fat free stawberry, mixed berry and mango yogurts. YUM YUM!!

The children from the Robins class have been learning about Life Cycles in Science. The children have each created their own book on the life cycle of a frog. The children worked extremely hard on their books and can describe each stage in detail. On Wednesday 13th May, they read their information books to the children in Ducklings. They shared their books and taught them about the life cycle of the frog.
Here are some pictures of our Easter production, ’The Big Green Adventure’!
