Robins Summer Newsletter 2021

Summer Term 2021

'Hello!' and welcome back everyone to The  Summer Term in The Robins Class!

The sun is shining and the Spring flowers are out! So, everyone is smiling!

We are starting to get back to some 'normality' in school whilst still strictly adhering to 'Covid guidelines'

We are still working in our 'Bubbles' so not mixing with lots of other children.

This term our school theme is 'The Great Outdoors' so we are trying to base as much as our learning outside as we can. 

We are reading 'Bugs, Bugs, Bugs' in the first half term and 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' for the second.

We still have the same staff and children and I have attached a new timetable and a copy of our Newsletter.

Dont forget to phone or write in the childrens' diaries if you have any problems or worries. We are here to help and support you.

Take care and keep safe

Julie, Lin, Zoe, Megan, Myrosa and Hannah.

Commotion in the Ocean

Week Six

It's now week six and we have worked so hard for the past half term!

This week is no exception as we have lots of exciting things to do.  These include looking at 'Bats' (our last animal in the story and in our jungle) But we also have Valentines day to prepare for and Chinese New Year and Pancake Day to celebrate! It is The Year of the Ox this Year.  So we have lots of themes this week.  We will be making these in Art and Enrichment ( together with Chinese Food Tasting) and use them during our fine motor skills sessions.  In Maths, The Ladybird group are continuing to recognise numbers and count to 10 and The Caterpiller Group are continuing subtraction especially 'one more, one less'.  In Phonics, we are continuing with Phase 2 of Letters and Sounds with The Ladybirds practising s,a,t,p,i,n and the Caterpillars m,d,g,o,c,k especially 'ck'.  During storytime, we are still listening to Lin read our story but are also reading 'The Rumble in the Jungle' (The link to Lin reading is on week Five)

In Science we are exploring 'textures' and making 'silky dough' The recipe is on Pinterest and Twitter.

In Wake up, Shake up we are trying Andy's Wild Workouts on Ceebeebies.  Give them a go! Choose your own! (Link below)

Our Assemblies and Music lessons are with Sara Kimber from Entrust and P.E using lessons by Susanne.  We will attach a daily plan for you to follow.  There are n't so many Twinkl sheets this weeks as much is on Pinterest!  But dont forget to Log in to Education City.  Send us your certificates to see together with your completed worksheets.  We hope you like our craft boxes.  Send us photos of what you make. But have a great week, keep safe and healthy and enjoy the half term!

Some Seaside themed Activities and workbooks for this week

Week Beginning 20th April 2020

For those of you unable to access Twitter, I will put our weekly theme and links to websites and activities.  These ideas will be put onto Twitter daily.  You can repeat the songs and dances of course. I have uploaded more Twinkl number and letter practice workbooks below together with fine motor skills practice and a counting sheet.  Its best to only do one or two of these sheets

a day as that will be quite enough for your child to do each day.  I will keep adding as we go along week by week!

Always start your day with some physical exercise.  Be it Joe Wicks, action songs or just dancing to your favourite songs.  It gets you and your children in the mood to work

This week our theme is 'TRANSPORT' 


There are lots of counting and phonics songs to do with Transport.  Follow the links.  There is a story called 'Emergency' and 'Dig dig, digging.'

In the afternoons you can make your own different types of transport from buses, cars, planes, balloons in all forms. 

Summer Term 2020

Hello All, and welcome to a very strange beginning to the Summer Term. I hope you all had a good Easter - I saw lots of photos of the lovely things you have been doing and making!  It looks like some of you have have had quite alot of fun.  There also seems to have been alot of Chocolate consumed!  The Easter Bunny has been very busy!!!

But, seriously, as these are unprecedented times, I hope you are all 'Keeping Safe'

I have attached a Newsletter which will explain how we are going to proceed with our Topic and school work.  I hope it makes sense! But we, will continue as before, with me posting daily on Twitter to give you links and activities to follow for that day. I'll also email or post some work from Twinkl on here.  But you will find lots of free resources available as Twinkl have very kindly waived their costs during this time of crisis.  I have put a link to Twitter on this website and you can also find a link to Twinkl on here. I have also added some Twinkl worksheets in case you are running out!

So have a good half term.  Who knows if we will see you, but I certainly look forward to talking to you regularly and finding out how you're doing and what you've been up to!  Dont forget to post your photos on Twitter or you can always email them to me.  Stay Safe and look after yourselves. smiley

General Maths, Phonics and fine Motor Skills Workbooks to download

I have attached a few twinkle workbooks for you to download if you want some extra writing, maths or pencil control sheets.  You dont have to do them, but they are here if you want them as you may have worked your way through the workpack I sent home!

But dont forget to do lots of exercise and lots of lovely crafts - I'll put ideas for those on Twitter - or, of course, you can make up your own ideas!!! Just enjoy your children!smiley

Thursday 26th March


Hello - it was lovely to talk to you all today.  Some of you are managing to get on with a routine really well. But I know, for some of you, it has not been so easy. It is really hard for our little Robins to understand that now they have to do work at home with Mummy or Daddy and not at school in The Robins Class!  To them, the worlds just dont mix!  It will take time, but be patient, and remember 'little and often' with breaks in between.  Always try to give warnings of what you're doing next.

I will try to put some symbols on the website for you to print off.


In the meantime, follow this link to get on twitter.  Don't forget, as we are a closed group, you have to request to follow.  We try to put on daily ideas and you can post on the work you have done or send me any questions or worries you may have.

Stay safe everyone smiley





School Closure (continued)

We hope you have enjoyed your first day at home.  We have missed the children - but needs must and we have to protect ourselves and each other.

Below is a list of websites you can use if you have any spare time outside of your lessons.  Here is a reminder of the routine which you can stick to:-


In class we follow a routine of work activity (circle time) – choosing/play/toilets – snack – outdoor play – work activity – choosing – lunch – outdoor play/toilets – work activity – choosing – snack – outdoor play. If you want to maintain your child’s routine then you may wish to do something similar at home.


Websites & resources we use and like are:

Purple Mash – every child has their own log on – it was stuck in their diary a few weeks ago.

Education City – every child has their own log on – it was stuck in their diary this week.

Twinkl – are offering a month free in light of the current situation affecting education

Youtube – please DO NOT allow your child free access to YouTube – however we like the following videos:

Barefoot Books singalong -

Jack Hartmann – Let’s get fit

Cosmic Yoga - Frozen

Cosmic Yoga – The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Little Baby Bum songs

Pinterest – search for craft, number, phonic activities for children on here.

Activity Village -


School Closure


As the school is now closed to most pupils, much online learning can be done at home. Please follow our twitter account @robinsclass1 where ideas and links will be put on.


Over the next few days we will be adding links to Purple Mash, Education City ( of which your child’s log in details are in their home school diaries) together with other useful websites and activities. 

We have sent home a letter detailing these websites already, together with a pack of worksheets to do at home.


If working with your children at home, it is good to establish a routine. They follow one at school and it is advisable to put one in place at home during the duration.

At school, our routine is:-

Arrive - toilet - toytime(10 mins) - register/circle time songs( counting etc) - short play - snack-           ( using PECS) - toilet - work/activities - short play - lunch- toilet - short play - work/activities - snack (using PECS) - toilet - home.

This is the basic structure of our day which we stick to. It is a good idea to adapt it to suit life and learning at home.


Dont forget to do activities such as reading with and to your children, colouring, drawing, cutting, gluing and sticking. Encourage your child to use PECS ( many of you have them provided by school) or simple language or Makaton signs to tell you their wants and needs. Don’t let them get away with just ‘pointing!’ - they would all rather do this than talk, sign or use their PECS!!!

Keep following Twitter and watch this website over the next few days for more links.


In the meantime, stay safe, look after your families and each other and follow government guidelines. 




Spring Term 2020

Happy New Year to All!

The children all came back into school looking rested and refreshed after their Christmas Break.

This term the whole school theme is 'The Detectives'.  In the Robins Class, we are looking at two books which follow the adventures of Dora the Explorer as she searches to solve problems.  Added to this, we continue with our routines, therapies and emphasis on Communication.  This is the way we find our children in the Robins Class learn and progress the best (See website for rationale)

We were delighted with how our three new little Robins settled into our class.  We can see rapid improvements and developments in so many areas and we know this will continue.

We also have lots of fun in the Robins Class and know our children enjoy coming to school!

Attached is our Class Newsletter and Timetable which also came home.  It gives more details of our daily lessons and any events happening in school this term.

So, we look forward to a term of continued fun and learning!!!
