A WARM WELCOME TO ROBIN CLASS!

Robin Class

It was great to see so many of you at our Parent's Meetings before half term.  If you weren't able to make these dates, please do see a member of the team to arrange a time to come and talk about your child's progress so far and see their learning journey.  If you weren't able to attend the Curriculum meeting we have uploaded the presentation below for your information. Do ask if you have any questions regarding this. 

 

Below are photos of us enjoying our learning, baking bread, enjoying the Autumn sunshine and taking part in Friendship day with Blackbird Class.

What are we learning about in Robin Class?

 

Our topic for this half term is 'My World'.  We will be learning about our new learning environment, making new friends and talking about our home and family.  After half term we will be learning about Celebrations.  Teaching and learning will be linked  to all seven areas of the curriculum; focusing on particular rhymes and stories which will be shared weekly (see links below).  

Please click on the link below to access the presentation from our New Parents Meeting in July which gives examples of the Areas of Learning together with useful information.

Through our topics we will also be using every opportunity to develop spiritual, moral, social, and cultural values- encouraging children to: explore beliefs and experiences; show respect for faiths, feelings and values; learn about themselves, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity as well as  reflect.  

Please refer to the medium term planning below for more details.

Letters and Sounds

In Nursery we follow the Letters and Sounds programme and we focus on phase 1.  This phase helps prepare the children for learning their alphabet sounds to be able to learn to read later on. It concentrates on developing children's careful listening skills.
