Hello! Welcome to Robins class.
My name is Mrs Neighbour and I am the class teacher. My teaching assistants are Mrs Shannon and Mrs Hill who are supporting the class over the week. The children learn through play and are able to access activities and resources in Robins classroom, Hens classroom and our large outdoor learning area. Throughout the day, the children take part in guided phonics and maths sessions and a reading workshop as well as listening to stories and other fun things. The children take part in PE and go to our on-site Forest School once a week. We visit the music room to have fun singing songs and playing instruments, and also visit the Library to share stories and look at interesting books. The children can take home books to share at home as often as they like, and eventually will also have a little reading book to practise their phonics. We also have WOW slips that you can fill in at home if your child does anything amazing such as ride a bike for the first time, or get dressed by themselves!
26th March Update
We have set up a class account on the Oxford Owl website, so you can access ebooks to read at home. Click on the link below, click on "My class login" and enter:
Then click on "My book shelf" and "Age 4-5"
Most of the books also have activities linked to the stories, for example The Little Red Hen has a story sequencing activity and a phonics game.
As you progress down the book shelves the reading levels become more challenging.
We hope these are useful, but don't forget to share lots of "real books" too!
your child is entitled to free school meals, we are still able to provide a hot lunch or a brunch bag regardless of whether or not they are in school. If you require a meal for your child, please let the school office know. Meals are ready to collect from the school office at 12.00pm each day. If your child is entitled to a meal but you are concerned about social distancing, we have put measures in place so that you can receive your child's meal safely.
Please continue to check the class page regularly - we will continue to update it over the course of the coming weeks.
We will all miss seeing the children over the next few weeks and we hope they are able to continue with their learning at home. Please find below a list of some useful websites and documents to help you support your child's learning while they are at home
We wish everyone well at this challenging time.
The Reception Team
Listed below are some useful website links and documents to help your child with their learning while they are off school. The children will also have a pack to take home on Friday or it will be delivered to you if your child is absent this week. The pack will include a Busy Book for your child to work in each day and resources to support their learning. Teachers will be phoning once a week to check how you and your family are getting on.
Many little things light up hungry little minds. Children take everything in, and even the smallest things parent/carers do with them can make a big difference.
To support your child's learning, here is a link to some information and recommended applications you can use for children from birth to five:
