 Robin Class

A warm welcome back to Robin Class – Summer Term 2024 part ii


It is hard to believe that we are heading into our last half term of the academic year. It has been a pleasure teaching Robin Class this year and the progress they have all made is incredible. The Robin staff team are all so proud and we cannot wait for more learning and fun this final half term. Our learning this half term will continue our learning about The Fens. We'll be learning about the history of the Fens and are looking forward to our trip back in time with the Great Fen half way through this termHave a look at our Curriculum Boxes on the general information page to find out further details about what we we will be learning about this half term. 


We love celebrating and learning about the rich diversity we have with our Robin Class family. We always welcome family visitors who can talk to the children about their culture or any festivals they celebrate. If you would be interested in doing this at any point during the year, please do contact Mrs Hedges. Details of the best ways to communicate with the staff can be found on the General Information page.


This term our PE days will be on Thursday and Friday afternoons. We invite the children to come into school wearing their PE kits.  As a reminder, this should be a white t-shirt, black or navy shorts/joggers (weather dependent), and their school sweatshirt or fleece. Long hair should be tied up, and earrings should be covered or removed. We are excited to start our swimming lessons this half term. They will take place on a Friday. We ask that children bring their swimming costume, towel and shoes that are easy to put on and off around the pool (eg sandles or crocs). We have our own supply of floating aids that we will provide the children with if necessary so they do not need to bring their own.


Please take time to have a look at the General Information section to familiarise yourself with all the essential information about being in Robin Class. Refer to the Home Learning section for additional information about learning you can do at home. In the Phonics section you will find videos of how to say and write the sounds and digraphs that we learn in Phonics during Reception and Year 1. Our Gallery section will be updated regularly with photos about what we are getting up to.


Cosy Club will continue this half term. Parents, carers and other family members are invited in from 8.40 until 8.55 to read with the Robins on a Wednesday and Friday. This is time for the children to read their reading book to you, or for you to share a book together. Thank you all those who joined us for Cosy Club last term, we are glad you are all enjoying it!


On the first Wednesday of each month, with the odd exception, we would like to invite parents, carers or any family member dropping off a Robin Class child to come into class before registration and sit alongside them for a few minutes.  'Welcome Wednesday' is an opportunity to share in the children's work, read with them, or simply discuss the current learning summarised on our classroom working walls.  We hope this will become a precious and rewarding 10 minutes for the whole school community to get together regularly in class.
