Welcome to Robin class!
We are all looking forward to an amazing Autumn term and are very excited to help the children settle into school.
- Book bag with reading book and record
- Water bottle (clearly labelled with their name)
- A waterproof coat, we will be accessing the outdoor area in all weathers.
- PE kit: black shorts, white t-shirt, dark sweatshirt or hoodie, joggers for cold weather and trainers.
- Spare underwear in case of accidents
Please make sure everything is clearly labelled with your child’s name, it makes it much easier to find missing items.
The children will enter through the green gates at the front of the school near the club room, a member of staff will be at the gate to direct you.

8:40am – Drop off

Reading Books will be changed on Monday. Please ensure that reading diaries are completed to show when you have read with your child and how many pages you have read. Book bags need to be in school every day, with reading books inside.
On Friday the children will bring home a library book that they can read and shared with their family.
The children will have swimming on Tuesday and PE on Wednesday. Please make sure their kit comes into school at the start of each half term and they can stay on their peg for the half term.
This term our topics will be ‘All about me’ and ‘Let’s explore London’, we will be focusing on what makes us special and how wonderful it is to all be different. We will then move onto Let’s explore London, we will think about: Where is it? What would we find there? Why is different to where we live?
Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you need any more information or have any questions.

This week, Robin Class thoroughly enjoyed their first week of Forest School. They explored the Forest School area and got to use a drill to make their own badges. We also continued the learning in the classroom, focusing on Summer. We discussed what happens to trees in Summer and the children created their own Summer trees.
