Welcome to Robin Class!
We are a mixed class of 28 Reception and Year One children in Robin Class. Our teacher is Mrs Llewellyn, our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Bisgrove and Mrs Howes. We are lucky to have a large classroom in the main building near the office and we have access to an outdoor area, which we use as much as possible.
We are very proud of our achievements and enjoy learning to be independent and creative. Sometimes we work with grown-ups in small groups and other times we learn by exploring our own interests. The grown-ups make observations of all our wonderful achievements as well as helping the adults plan for our next steps. We are encouraged to be as independent as possible, from sorting out our own book bags, snacks etc. in the mornings to selecting resources to support our own learning.
We are very lucky to have caring parents who support us at home with our learning. We have a learning wall in the classroom to celebrate our fantastic work at home and school. Come and look!
Robin classroom is always busy and we love to try new things. We are looking forward to more exciting learning and adventures this term!
Homework (Year One)
On Fridays, we are given one piece of Maths homework and one piece of English (in our homework books) to support our learning at school. Please complete this and return the file to the homework tray as soon as it is completed so that Mrs Llewellyn can mark it.
Please ensure you read regularly at home and note when you have read in your reading record books, so the adults can change it for another.
Phonics – Read Write Inc:
'The more I read, the better I get at reading. The better I get, the more I enjoy reading’.
This year, as part of our School Development Plan to raise standards in English in every class, all children will have three Read Write Inc lessons weekly. Read Write Inc is a systematic approach to teaching phonics, reading and writing. More than just phonics, Read Write Inc is an integrated approach to comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary and handwriting. Mrs Weston will be running a series of parent workshops about Read Write Inc over the next few months. Please look out for the dates in our weekly school newsletter.
Below are some useful videos to help you support your child at home and understand how Read Write Inc. is taught in school:
