 Welcome to Robins Class 


Due to school closure, we have added some home activities that you may wish to complete with your child whilst school is closed. Please check the class page daily for any new resources. Your child will have brought home some of the activities already, however some of them will need to be downloaded. There are a number of websites also available for home learning, along with Purple Mash, My Maths and Espresso.



Welcome Robins Class, please take a look below at the different links that you and your child can access to help with their home learning. If you have any questions, please log in to Purple Mash and use the blogging page. This can be accessed by using the 'sharing tab' which will then take you to the class blog.

White Rose, the maths curriculum we currently use in school, has created home-learning for most year groups. It will be updated regularly.It relies on worksheets but most of them do not need to be printed off, so children could work on paper.

Here is the link:

The BBC has lots of different activities, see below:


Children's author, Oliver Jeffers, is also reading his books live on instagram then putting them on his website daily. Go to His books are charming and beautifully illustrated too!

Spring Term
Welcome back to the Spring Term 2020

This term we will be exploring the topics:
Spring 1 - 'Heading South for the Winter' and 'The Great Fire of
Spring 2 - 'Secret Garden'.

In Heading South for the Winter, the children will be learning about Antarctica and penguins in particular. They will be using their Geography skills to locate Antarctica on a map.

We have found that the Great Fire of London is a popular History topic that the children really enjoy learning about.

In Science, the children will continue to learn about Seasons, focusing this time on Winter. They will also be looking at Materials, identifying what different things are made of and describing them.


The children will be looking at place value within 50, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s, addition and subtraction to 20, measurement, number bonds to 5, 10 and 20.


The children will continue to have daily phonics sessions usually from 9.10am – 9.30am for approximately 20 minutes.
In Year 1 we follow the Letters and Sounds programme which is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills.
Progression is monitored closely by teachers. Children in Year 1 have a phonics screening test administered in the summer as directed by the Department of Education.



Please could you listen to your child read each evening and please remember to sign their book each time they read. There are rewards given both by Mrs Lewis and Mrs Denton for continuous reading at home; it makes a huge difference to the children's progession in reading.

Your child's teachers will also hear your child read as often as possible, both individually and in groups as part of guided reading; and of course throughout the day as part of whole class learning.



The children will be using their writing skills in both fiction and non-fiction texts; focusing on neat handwriting, capital letters, full stops, finger spaces and extending their sentences.


PE and Dance

Dance lessons this term will be on a Monday and PE will be on Tuesdays. Please could we ask you to make sure that your child has their P.E kit in school every day.

Spring 1 the children will be learning some gymnastics in PE.

Spring 2 the children will be participating in outdoor P.E lessons whenever possible so you may wish to make sure they have a tracksuit top and bottoms at school. Please could you ensure that all items of clothing (PE and uniform) are named.



Welcome back to the second half of the autumn term.

This term our topic is Topic is 'Toys, old and new'. The children will be investigating toys in the past and  how toys are different today. They will also be given the opportunity to use their designing skills. 


In Science they will be looking at materials which will link into what different toys are made of. 


Homework and Spellings.

Each Thursday, the children will be bringing home some spellings; they will need to complete these each day and have their folders with them every day at school so that they can complete their spellings at school also. On Thursday they will have their spelling test. They will also be bringing home some homework, either literacy or maths; this needs to be returned each Monday.





Autumn 1

Robins class have settled in very well and have adapted well to Year 1. Here is a general time table of each day with a few variations!

Children come in at 9am and the register is taken.

The children then go off to their phonics groups for approximately 20 minutes. They then continue the morning with Maths and English with playtime and assembly in between.

They have their lunch just after 12pm and then go out to play. The children then come in to class again at 1.15pm for registration and then do some quiet reading. The children will then complete some Topic work, and either PSHE, RE, Music, Science or PE.


Phonics and English

The above site shows examples of what each letter sound makes.

Phonics are an essential part of the children’s learning which enables them to read and spell accurately. The children bring home some phonics spellings every Friday to help reinforce their learning. Spelling is also an essential part of the curriculum; below are a few common exception words that the children are expected to know by the end of Year 1. 



a are ask be by come do friend

Please try to read with your child each night, they should be bringing home a reading book and also a book that focuses on phonic skills. We try to change their books Monday, Wednesday and Friday as long as they have read the book. Please ensure that if you have listened to your child at home then you sign their books. They will then get a sticker, 10 stickers means that they are awarded a prize out of the Robins goody box. They will also continue with the Reading Challenge and aim to achieve the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum awards.

The children also have a weekly guided reading session which really helps the children’s comprehension skills.

In English the children have been learning about captions, lists and labels. They have also been learning about poetry and have been reciting several different poems. Over the next few weeks they will also be looking at stories in familiar settings and non-fiction books.



Our topic for this half term has so far covered Autumn and All about Me. The children have been completing lots of art work using paint, pastels and sketching. They have also been labelling parts of the body and learning about their senses.



Each Monday of this term the children participate in Dance sessions with Miss Holly and PE with Mr Knight on Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit every day and that it is named. Now the weather is beginning to change please could you ensure that your child has jogging bottoms and a top also as they will continue to complete PE outside for as long as the weather allows.



We continue to use the SEAL theme which is currently New Beginnings. We also follow the Values scheme. During September we will be looking at Respect.
