Welcome to Robins - Reception Class!


Welcome to Robins class page!


We are so excited to welcome all of our new starters to Robins. We hope that you have had a lovely summer and are all ready for your first term at 'big' school'. We will keep this page updated each term with our new focus for the term and a learning map which explains what your children will be learning about in all areas of the curriculum. 


Our focus for Autumn 1 is finding out all about oursleves, our family and our school. We will be having fun in both our home corner and our Tesco role play area. If you have any books/resources linked to this topic please do bring them into share with the class. 


Please have a look at our page to find out all the recent information. We will keep it updated with any workshops we carry out and important dates. The learning maps will tell you what we are focusing on this term and learning about across the curriculum.


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

PE -

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.


Reading books -

Reading books will be changed once a week during our reading sessions.  For ease please keep reading books in your child’s book bag and bring them into school everyday.

Please put a quick comment in your child's reading record when you have read with them (including any words etc that they found tricky). If your child reads at least 5 times at home then they get their name entered into a draw to win a £10 book voucher. 

If your child is ready for another new book (in the week) please let us know!


Library books:

Changed every Monday


Yellow Homework books:


These will be sent home once we have started our phonics sessions at school. Please help your children to practise saying the phoneme correctly, recognising it around the home and out and about and also to form it correctly. Can they find any objects around the home that begin with that weeks phoneme?


If you have any questions please do ask.

In Robins we love reading inside and outside. We also get to share books with the juniors once a week too when we visit each others classes. Once a term our parents also join us in school for our 'Big Read'. Our Author of the Year is Julia Donaldson. We enjoy sharing her stories at story time and listening to her songs. We also take it in turns to take home a story sack which contains some of her books for us to share at home too.
