Welcome to Robins - Reception Class!


Welcome to Robins class page!


We hope you all have had a wonderful Easter break and all ready for the Summer term. Our book for Summer 1 is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. We will be having fun in our garden centre role play and enjoy finding out all about different mini beasts, some life cycles and plants. If you have any books/resources linked to this topic please do bring them into share with the class. We are very excited for our school trip to Bristol Zoo on Friday 10th May. 


Please have a look at our page to find out all the recent information. The learning maps will tell you what we are focussing on this term and learning about across the curriculum.


I have also put on our workshops that we have had for phonics and maths. These will give you information about how we teach phonics, writing and maths at school and things you can do to help at home. Any questions please do ask.


We really appreciate how many of you come to these events and would like to say thank you for the positive feedback. 


Please see our latest newsletter for inset days and term dates.

Please ensure that your child's indoor PE kit is complete, named and in school at the start of every week. We will send these PE kits home each half term for you to wash.
