Autumn 1 - P.E - 5-10-18


This half term in P.E, Palm class have been learning about Egyptian dance. In their lessons they have listened to a piece of music and they have created a dance routine of what life was like in ancient Egypt. Palm have been miming how the slaves were building pyramids, working in the hot conditions and living by the river. In their outdoor P.E lessons, Palm have been doing some orienteering and have learnt new skills such as compass reading. They also took part in an activity where they were blindfolded and had to trust their partner to guide them around an obstacle course.  Well done to Palm for a fantastic start to these topics!

Spanish Day

Spanish Day 1
Spanish Day 2

To celebrate European Day of Languages, Robin Hood Junior School took part by having a Spanish Day. The children were able to wear the colours of the Spanish flag (red, yellow and black) this also included wearing traditional Spanish clothing or the football kit of any Spanish team. In addition to this, each child had the opportunity to learn flamenco dancing and spent time tasting traditional Spanish dishes such as aioli (garlic dip) and patatas (potatoes seasoned with paprika). Some liked the food more than others, but they all had an enjoyable day.

The children thoroughly enjoyed watching and taking part in an Egyptian workshop. They were taught about Ancient Egyptians and their lifestyle. The workshop was highly interactive and the some members of the year group were asked to take part during the play. During the workshop the children were asked to make various different freeze frames and had to use their knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians to include as many aspects as possible. 

First Aid workshop

The children spent their first aid session practicing applying bandages, basic first aid skills and learning the importance of knowing what to do in an emergency. The whole session was enjoyed by all and has taught the children some valuable life skills to keep themselves safe.
