Welcome to Robins 


In Robins class the children learn to become part of a team, it is where the foundations are put into place to help every child become an independent, confident learner. The children are taught through planned challenges and self initiated tasks. We encourage the children to be inquisitive and ask questions such as how, why, helping them develop their understanding.



Home Learning

Home learning tasks will be added to our class page by Monday of each week and these will run alongside learning in school. This will enable you to continue to support your child’s learning in a meaningful way and enables us to work together effectively. It is important that children complete the home learning each week and get into the routine of working from home. Home learning partnerships with school are crucial in supporting your child’s success and we very much look forward to working alongside you.



Weekly Home Learning

Reading - Once your child  brings home a reading book, please make a special time to hear your child read to you (before they get too tired in the evening). Ideally listen to your child read every day for five to ten minutes. Please remember it is as important for your child to talk about what is happening in the story and answer questions about what they have read as it is them being able to read the words. So please take time to ask appropriate simple questions about the story and characters.
Bug Precision Words - Your child will be bringing home high frequency words. In order to help your child to become a fluent reader they should practice reading the words we send home daily as this will increase the recognition of these words which in turn will help them read more fluently.  Taking the time to build their accuracy with sight reading these words will have a huge positive impact on their ability to read successfully and confidently. 

Letter Formation - Please help your child practise their letter formation as we teach new sounds to your child. This could be done with crayons, chalk, pens, in glitter, rice, ketchup, in the bath bubbles, mud - anywhere your child can make marks and play - get creative and share on Tapestry.


NumBots -  You will be provided with your child's personal user name and password.  Please encourage your child to use this activity. The programme your child's challenge level and ensures they have strong foundations in numbers.

Number Formation - please use this link to see how we form our letters and spend a couple of minutes a day practising how to write the numbers. 

Termly Home Learning



Here you will find ongoing tasks for the term. We will incorporate these tasks into our daily learning in class but if you could spend time revising the activities at home this will be a huge help to your child and their learning.

We have only just started school and we can already follow a set of instructions independently!

We are loving staying at school for lunch and fun in the afternoons!

Here are some useful websites to use with your child at home...
