Growing In Faith and Learning

Welcome to St Leonard's CofE Primary School


Welcome to Robins Class Page!


This term we are exploring many interesting things, but our focus topic is The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. We will be engaging in many interesting adventures and activities!






PE sessions are to be on a Thursday morning this term we are focusing on dance.


Please ensure your child has a PE kit within school. They require a white tee shirt, black shorts, pumps or trainers, socks and a tracksuit for outdoor sports.




We are looking at the story Zacchaeus this term and exploring the joy of belonging to a community.




We will be having a daily phonics session with all children and they will be learning new sounds and words. Please support your child with this at home and communicate if you feel your child is progressing well or struggling.


All children have now been split into differentiated phonics groups and are progressing well. Please practise their sounds daily and their tricky words to help support them.




All children in reception have been given reading books. The books are matched to their phonics group and we endeavour to read with them daily at school. Please note that it is essential that read daily at home.




Children within Reception and Nursery will have a continuous provision which will have ample opportunities for children to explore number, shape, space and measure. We will encourage them to investigate and develop their language skills throughout their time in school, challenging them to think more independently and apply their own ideas. They will also have maths sessions where a focused aim is set, so they can then practise these skills at their leisure within the provision.


This term we are looking at number sequencing, one more and less and number bonds. Please ask Mrs Smith if you require additional information.


Home Learning


We will send out Home Learning every Friday with the request it is returned by Wednesday of the next week. There will two tasks each week that your child will be requested to complete. These will be differentiated to the individual child, with hope to work on the areas they need personally.


We also are sending out handwriting books for them to practise their letter formation.


Phonics work to help support their learning within the classroom too.




I shall be uploading photos regularly to the website for you to see what activities your children have been involved in.


If you request your child not to be on the website, please contact the office and we will make sure they are not included in the publications.



If at any time you need to speak with me confidentially, please make an appointment at the office or drop me an email and I will arrange a suitable time.


Kind regards


Mrs Smith

JOLLY SONGS A-Z(from the big book JOLLY SONGS)

This video gives children access to all the phase 2 phonics sounds and gestures.

Jolly Phonics Phase Three

Jolly Phonics is a program designed to help children learn the name and sounds of letters. I have put together all the Jolly Phonic songs from Phase Three. Before children can read or start to read they need to have some understandance of letter sounds and this is a fun way of learning them.


This is a song we are learning in class.
