ROBINS

Welcome to Robins Class Page.

 

I am Miss Angell, Robins class teacher. Mrs Hart is our 1:1 teaching assistant and Mrs Fiore is our general class teaching assistant. On a Wednesday Mrs Hinson teaches us in the afternoon. We have 18 children in our class this year.

Take a look at our class page to see what we are up to in Robins Class!

 

 

Our Topic for the Spring term is Once Upon a Time...We started the Spring term off by having a dress up day to introduce our new topic, where we all came into school dressed up as a Fairy Tale character- Even our teachers joined in as characters from Snow White! We enjoyed exploring our new castle themed role play area where we could act out different fairy tale stories. We also wrote some fantastic sentences about an enchanted fairy tale castle.
During our topic this term we will have lots of learning experiences to develop in all areas of the curriculum. We will be reading a range of new and old fairy tale stories which our classroom provision will link to. 
One of our stories is Jack and The Beanstalk- we will have the chance to plant our own magic beans and grow a beanstalk to reach the giants castle.
In maths this  half term we are looking at counting and recognising numbers to 10 and 20, finding missing numbers, estimating and checking, adding and subtracting. We will also look at size, weight and capacity in our maths lessons
 
Take a look at our learning environment!
We will continue to do Forest Schools on a Friday morning, so please ensure that children come to school dressed in warm clothing that is suitable for the session, I would recommend lots of layers, wellington boots and a change of coat or outer layer. Please send your child with their school uniform in a bag ready for getting changed at the end of the session. We get very muddy!
During our Forest School sessions we take our learning outside, we get to explore the outdoors and learn in a different way.
Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL of the children lots of  opportunities to achieve and develop their confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in our natural environment. The children will develop in all areas of the curriculum during these sessions, particularly Communication and Language and Personal, Emotional and Social Development.

PE will continue to take place on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.  Therefore all the children need to have a PE kit in school on those days.  The village hall can be quite chilly in cold weather so you may prefer to put a pair of tracksuit bottoms into you child’s PE bag.  Please ensure that all items (including clothing, water bottles, and lunch boxes) that come to school with your child are clearly named to avoid loss.  As part of our PE lessons we will be doing gymnastics and showing good control and coordination and learning to move and travel using our bodies in our lessons.
