Autumn Term 2017

wb 09.10.17


  Friday, 13.10.17  Robins' class assembly in the hall at 9.00 a.m.

Friday, 04.11.17  Raptor Center will visit our Robins class. 

In the coming week we will be practising for our assembly which will be about owls and autumn in general but we will continue with shapes and number work.  We don't shy away from correct mathematical language for shapes and number.  As a matter of fact Robins love their "posh words" in mathematics.

You will notice that your child is beginning to bring home books to support their phonic knowledge.  It's best to read the notes to parents to get the most out of these.  Please write a comment in the diary about any reading done at home, including these books.  

Weekend homework:

Look out for autumnal changes as you are driving/walking to and from school.  Keep on practising any new sounds and have a go at  story telling for any wordless books which appear in your child's book bags.


Robins are getting extremely tired so we will begin a brief quiet rest time in the afternoons where they will lie down for ten minutes.  It would be great if you could send in a named towel for this purpose.

  Please continue to send in healthy snacks ie no sweets.  

Also, please keep children, including younger siblings, off the playground equipment after school.

Many thanks!
