Robin Class

Autumn Term Information

Welcome back!

All of the children have made a fantastic start back and we are looking forward to another exciting half term.

Following government guidance school start times will be staggered for different year groups. Robin Class will be in school from 8:45am – 3:00pm.

This term we will be exploring the theme of ‘Toys’. This topic will focus on changes in living memory. The children will learn to correctly use the terms past and present to compare pictures and artifacts. They will use historical enquiry to ask and answer questions about the past.

This topic will also give the children the opportunity to share and compare their own experiences to those of others and those of children in the past, allowing them to see the differences and similarities between themselves and other children.

Full details of the topic are available in the planning underneath.

Every day checklist:

  • Book bag with reading book and record
  • Water bottle
  • Coat – all children will need a waterproof coat in school (which needs to be labelled with their name) as we will be accessing the outdoor area in all weathers.

Reading – Books will be changed on Monday and Friday. 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.

Please ensure that all children have a change of clothes in school should they need to change them for any reason.

The children have P.E on a Tuesday and Wednesday – due to current government guidelines children will not be changing for PE.

Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you need any more information or have any questions.

For children in Reception, we are using ‘Learning Book‘ to record the steps of progress that they make.  As parents, you can also record things that your child is doing at home and share them with the staff.  For a log-in for your child’s ‘learning book’ page, please speak to Miss Duncan.
