Welcome to Robins - Reception Class!


Welcome to Robins class page!


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. 


We are all so excited to be in Autumn 2 at school. It is such an exciting and busy time with the countdown to Christmas! We will be sharing the book ' The Jolly Christmas Postman' and doing lots of activities based around it such as exploring other people who help us. Please look at our learning map further down the page to find out more.  We are also going to be having a fun activity day with Year 1 and 2 on the first day back exploring the topic of Bonfire night. On Friday 8th November we are also going on an Autumn walk in the local area to look at all the changes that have happened and to collect some leaves and other natural items to create crafts back at school. 


 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.


Thank you to everyone who attended our Phonics Workshop on Thursday 7th November. Please scroll down to see the powerpoint if you were unable to attend or to go over what was said. Any questions please do come and speak to a member of the team.

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.

Author of the Year - 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 a and to try out some activities linked to the books we have read.
