South Petherton Church of England Infants and Pre-School

Robin Class

Update 05.11.2021

The class have settled well after half term and are looking forward to bonfires and fireworks this weekend!

We are now able to change reading books each day, and as we listen to children read each day please ensure that book packets come into school daily. We begin a new English topic next week, based on the picture book 'The Queen's Hat'. It will be great fun as it involves finding out a lot about London.

Update 24/09/2021

I have uploaded some 'Mathletics' activities for the children to complete at home over the next 10 days. Please try to log on using the link below and the user name and password in the back of the reading record. It will be great to see if lots of children can win certificates next Friday!

Update 23/09/2021

Book Packets: Please could these be in book bags daily!

Thank you to all parents who have spent time reading with their children. We would really like to see reading packets in school every day as we do need to hear children read on a regular basis. The book packet is also useful for letters coming home and answer slips being returned to school. We can also replace reading books more frequently if needed. 

Welcome to Robin Class 2021!


'Embracing the Fullness of Life'

John 10:10 "I am come, that they might have life, and that they might have it abundantly."


Welcome children and parents to Robin Class at the start of the autumn term 2021.

We are a class of 22 year 1 children and the adults in the class are Mr. Halford (class teacher), Mrs. England (teaching assistant Monday to Wednesday), Mrs. Bagwell (teaching assistant Wednesday to Friday) and Mrs. Walker who will be with us occasionally to support learning.

Year 1 is a big change for the children as they begin to meet the Key Stage One curriculum...but not just yet!!!

For the first two weeks of term we will be taking all of our work from the wonderful book 'Katie and the Starry Night' by James Mayhew.




These two weeks will focus on art, but all of our learning, reading, writing and maths will be based on the book.

After the first two weeks the Year 1 curriculum begins in earnest. I will be setting out the children's learning for the term in the class newsletter which will be with you soon, as well as being an attachment on this page.

Please do what you can to support your children at home. Many studies have shown that reading is the one thing that has the greatest impact on learning, so a little reading daily is not only desirable but really important to support progress in all areas of the curriculum. Thank you for all that you do.

I will update this page fairly regularly, so please keep looking!
