Hello Robins!

What to bring to school:

Children should bring their reading book and reading diary to school every day. This can be in a school bookbag or a small bag. Children also need to bring a named water bottle. A named sun hat and sun cream may also be brought in when required. Wellie boots can be brought in and left in school ready to be used in the winter months.



Please keep checking your Tapestry account for any class notifications and updates. We will upload the 'Big WOW Moments' of your child's learning and share these with you. Please upload any activities that you complete at home together. This could be baking, nature walks, sharing stories, spotting numbers or sounds while out and about etc. We would love to see your learning adventure continuing at home!


Reading books:

Your child's reading book will be changed weekly. As we progress with our Read Write Inc (Phonics) your child will bring home a reading book with simple captions and stories. Talk to your child about their book - can they retell the story in their own words, do they understand what has happened? These early comprehension skills are crucial in order to make progress throughout their time in school. Encourage your child to look at their own books at home and talk about what is happening in the story.

Your child will also bring home a school library book for you to share together. This will be changed weekly.  



PE will take place on a Tuesday and Friday. Please come to school dressed in the correct PE kit (Plain black shorts/joggers, red school PE top and plain black jumper/hoodie) on these days. 



Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.


Mrs Ashton


Children in the Robins Class are expected to read their school reading book a minimum of 5 times per week. In addition to this, Reception children can access weekly Read Write Inc videos and tasks. Each phonics group (Reception and Year 1) will receive weekly tasks to complete to support their learning within school. All children also have access to Numbot and TTRockstars.
