No Pens Day!

In year 1 we have focussed on using our fine motor skills in other ways today.

We explored design and technology and used skills such as joining, making mechanisms and using cookery tools.

We were inspired by David Attenborough’s tweet of the day about robins and we used our listening skills to gain knowledge about this animal type. We researched birds on the RSPB website by reading facts and discussed and described their habitat, diet and features. We found out that robins are omnivores!

We used this knowledge to create a rocking robin, a robin on a lever and cheese straw worms!

And guess what our theme was for our Christmas tree decorations . . . . fingerprint robins!
