Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Robins Class Page!
Welcome to our class page. Our Robins class is taught by Miss Preece and supported by Mrs Juxon and Miss Hearne. We hope that this page gives you all the information you need!
This term we are learning 'All about me'. During this topic, we will look at a range of different texts. We will discuss our families and look at our bodies. The children will learn through a range of activities, developing their skills in all areas.
This half 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.
Our PE sessions are on a Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning. This term we are focusing on moving, thinking carefully about how our bodies move.
Please ensure your child has a PE kit within school. They require a white t.shirt, black shorts, pumps for indoor PE and trainers for outdoor PE, socks and a tracksuit for outdoor sports.
This term we are focusing on Harvest, thinking carefully about why we are thankful for the harvest. The children will be looking at the different fruit and vegetables that are grown and harvested. We will also look at where other fruit and vegetables are grown and discuss why we are thankful for how we get to try lots of different things.
All children in Reception have been given reading books, with our Nursery children getting their books shortly. Many of the children are on picture books where they develop their understanding of how books are structured, some children have books with words in them. Those who are reading books with words have had them selected to link to the phonics they have been learning at school.
Please note that it is essential that read daily at home. We have our bookworm display ready to celebrate how often each child reads. Every book pink and above comes with a book mark to help parents when reading with their children and question the children for the stage they are on.
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.
