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 to Robins - Reception Class!

 

 

 

Welcome to Robins class page!

 

Welcome to Term 3! We hope that you all had a lovely break and wish you all lots of happiness and health for the New Year.

 

The question we are exploring this term is, 'What makes a good pet?'. Our main books we will be doing work around this term are, Handa's Surprise, Dear Zoo, and  Tabby McTat . We will also be exploring non fiction books to fnd out more information on animals and guessing the animals through clues . We will also be writing our own 'What am I?' clues for our friends to guess. Which animal do you think would make a good pet? What pets have you got?

 

We have changed our role play into a Vets Surgery.The children loved exploring the doctors things last term so we are sure they will love this area too. We have moved our home corner into our brand new wooden playhouse outside for the children to play in. This term we have moved our classroom around and made a bigger maths area for the children to explore.  

 

The recent curriculum overview and Learning map are further down the page. Please scroll down to find them. This will help you to see what the children are learning about at school. We will continue to send the weeks homework tasks through seesaw each Friday and please do upload the pictures of their reading diaries onto seesaw each week too.

 

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

 

 

 

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.

 

PATCH THE DOG – we will continue to send our class dog home to go on adventures at your home. Please ensure he is returned on a Monday so again he can be quarantined for enough days so that he is safe to go home the following Friday.

 

PE – Our PE day is on a Tuesday. Please send your child in their PE clothes that are appropriate for the weather. 

 

READING BOOKS – All children hve 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. We also let you knwo what our maths focus has been.

 

WELLIES -  to be kept in school all year for use during outdoor play and lunchtimes. PLease name these.

 

SEESAW - Please only add photos of the readiing diary weekly and the Jolly Phonics sheets we have sent home.  Many Thanks.

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.
