Welcome to Robins class!
Wow that first term has gone very quickly and successfully. The Dinosaur topic was a huge success and lots of fun.
This term our topic is called The Great Fire of London. It is a history based topic where we will be looking at how London has changed from the past to the present day and how people lived in old London. We will also be covering some fire safety. In literacy we will be creating our own firework poems and writing diary as if we were living in London during the great fire. In maths this term we will be focusing on our addition and subtraction skills, learning our number facts to 20 and starting to solve one step problems.
Could you ensure that your child’s PE kit (both indoor and outdoor) is in school. The children should have a PE jumper (black/navy), jogging bottoms (black/navy), a t-shirt (white), shorts (black/navy) and sensible trainers. If the kit gets muddy, they will be sent home to be cleaned.
Reading books should be read twice at home before they are changed, please discuss what has been read with your child to promote their understanding. When your child’s book needs to be changed, please encourage them to do so first thing in the morning.
Please continue to help your child to learn their list of high frequency words (lotto), encourage your child to sight read AND spell each word. We will test them on these words at least once a fortnight (we aim for once a week, but this is not always possible). There is a copy of all of these sets of words at the bottom of this page, please feel free to download and use these.

(Please note that the 100 high frequency words should be learnt before moving on to the 200 common words)
