Welcome to Robins class!
This term our topic is called Plants. It will allow us to develop our knowledge of our environment and how to care for it. In groups we will be looking after a bean plant and keeping a diary as it grows throughout the term. This term we will also be focusing on non fiction books and writing during our literacy and guided reading sessions.
Here are some pictures of what we have been doing over the past couple of months.
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 put it inside their reading record and both into the top pocket of the fabric storage unit near the door. We will endeavour to change it that day.
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)
