Welcome to the Robins Class Page

Hello Robins!

On behalf of the Robins team, I would like to give a big welcome to our new Reception children. We are all very excited to be starting your learning journey with you. I would also like to welcome back our Year 1 children. 

I will be available to address any queries every morning and afternoon on the class circle. Alternatively, please contact me via email -

What to bring to school:

Children should bring their reading book and diary to school every day. This can be in a school bookbag or a small bag. Children also need to bring a 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 twice per week. As we progress with our Read Write Inc (Phonics) your child will bring home a reading book with simple captions. 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. 



PE will take place on a Wednesday and Friday. Please come to school dressed in your PE kit on these days. 



Homework will be set in a 3x3 grid. There are a selection of activities that you can complete at home together, at your leisure. If/when you complete any of the activities, please take photographs and upload them to your Tapestry account. We will then share and celebrate your work with the rest of the class.


Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
