Robin Class

Spring 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 ‘Plants’. The children will have the opportunity to plant their own seeds and grow their own plants. They will gain an understanding of how to care for plants, the parts of a plant and the life cycle of a plant. They will learn to use scientific language to label and describe plants.

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.
