Robins

Welcome to Robins Class Page!

 

Welcome to our class page.  Our Robins class is taught by Miss Preece and supported by Mrs Juxon and Mrs Pallett.  We hope that this page gives you all the information you need!

 

This half term we are learning through the topic 'Christmas around the World'.  During this topic, we will look at a range of different texts and how different countries have different traditions.    The children will learn through a range of activities, developing their skills in all areas, making learning fun and purposeful.

 

Phonics

 

 This term our main focus is phonics, supporting the children to learn their phonemes and develop these into reading and writing.  Our Nursery children are currently working at Phase 1, where they focus on what they can hear as well oral segmenting and blending.  Our Reception children are working at Phase 2, where they are learning a range of phonemes as well as the letter formation for each letter introduced. 

 

Please support your child with this at home, encouraging them to share the phonemes they have been learning and encouraging them to use them as much as possible.

 

 

PE

Our PE sessions this half term are on a Tuesday afternoon and every other Friday afternoon for enrichment sports, but the children are presented with lots of opportunities to develop their moving and handling skill on a daily basis.  This term we are doing Multi-skills, where the children will learn and develop lots of new skills to help them in other sports.  We are also supporting the children in learning to change independently.

 

Please ensure your child has a PE kit within school everyday as we may offer additional PE sessions.  They require a white t-shirt, black shorts, pumps for indoor PE and trainers for outdoor PE, socks and a tracksuit for outdoor sports.

 

RE

 

This term we are focusing on 'What makes every person special?' Where we will learn about how we are all different and celebrate this as a class.  The children have already looked at the story of 'The Lost Sheep'.

 

 

 

Reading

 

All children in Reception will be given a reading book once the children are confident with the first 3 weeks phonemes to support them with reading words.  Nursery children will not be having reading books but we ask that you continue to share stories with them at home so they continue developing a love of books. 

 

Please note that it is essential that read daily at home, however we ask that regular reading takes place so that the children are continuing to develop their use of phonics.  We ask that the children read each book 3 times, the first to use their phonemes, the second to develop their fluency and the third to have a good understanding of the story. 

 

Maths

 

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 half term we are looking at number, developing counting skills and number recognition. 

 

 

Kind regards
