SELF ISOLATING or WAITING FOR RESULTS.
Please keep us informed if you are self isoalting or waiting for results which we are finding is taking time.We will then send home learning for you to do with your child, linked to what we are doing at school.
Welcome back to the final term. We can't belive this is our last term together before you fly off to Year 1! We are going to make sure we have so much fun together!
This term our key question for our topic at school is 'What things change?' Our role play is a Garden Centre this term and we are also expecting some exciting vistors to our class which may also change over the weeks! We will keep you posted! Please look at the termly overview to see what we are learning about in detail this term and the books we will be sharing. I wonder if you have noticed what has changed recently while you are out and about.
PE is on a TUESDAY this term so please come to school in your PE clothes.

WOW MOMENTS - we like to share the achievements of children inside and outside of school. You will be sent home some WOW slips. Please make note of any special achievements your child has done that has made you proud. These can be sent in each week, we will quarantine them and share them the following week.

PE – Our PE day is on a TUESDAY this term, Please send your child in their PE clothes that are appropriate for the weather.
READING BOOKS – All children have now got a library book and a reading book. Reading diaries will still need to be kept at home. We will keep a record of when they have read at school. Your child will have a set day to bring in their library/reading book and these books will then be quarantined. This will be the only day that we are able to give your child a book so please ensure their books are in their bag that day so they can have a new one. We ask that you put a photo of your reading records each week on SEESAW so that we can see what they have read at home. We encourage children to read at least 5 times a week, for a maximum of 10 minutes. We hold a reading raffle in school. If a child reads at home 5 times a week then there names goes in the raffle. At the end of the term we pull out a name and they win a £10 book token, donated by the PTFA.
HOMEWORK – Each week we will send home a phonics task/phoneme sheets which you can add to the yellow books and then please put a photo on SEESAW by the Wednesday of each week to share their learning.

OUR AUTHOR OF THE YEAR IS JULIA DONALDSON
In Robins our Author of the Year is Julia Donaldson. We love listening to her stories during story time and enjoying reading them ourselves in our reading area. We have already remembered her name and can name a lot of the books she has written. We also enjoy listening to and joining in with her songs from her CD and book called ' A Treasury of Songs' . During the year we will all get the chance to take the story sack home which includes two of her books 'Zog' and 'Spinderella'. We then write a book review about them to share with our friends.
Please see the website links below to find out more about Julia Donaldson, view some of the books she has written and to try out some activities linked to the books we have read.
