Welcome to Robins Class

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Bernie Tarrant and Mrs Lynne Waldron 

                 Welcome back to the Spring Term in Robins!



The children have gelled beautifully since the merge at Christmas and the environment has also evolved. The children have taken ownership of their indoor and outdoor space and are helping to develop it on a daily basis.  

In Literacy, we have been learning to write sentences with capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Now we are moving onto rhyming strings and nonsense poetry. What fun! 

In Maths, we have been learning to estimate, using part- part- whole and bar method. More recently, we have explored doubling and halving.


In other news, we received a very exciting email this week. It came with a video attachment. Would you like to view it?



Why not take a few moments to peruse our recent photography? At the top of this page.
