Welcome to Term 3
Happy New Year to you all!
Again this is not the way any of us wanted to begin another term and we can only hope that we are all back in school very soon.
We hope that you all managed to enjoy your Christmas and that a visit from Father Christmas cheered you all up.
To begin this term some of us will be learning in school whilst some of us are learning at home. so that we can all keep in touch we will have daily Zoom sessions. This will enable us to chat with our friends and play some games.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on there.
Times are very strange at the moment but please know that we are still here for you. If you need any support please feel free to contact us.
See you all back at school soon

End of Term 2
Well, that was another strange term for us all but yet again Robins you have been amazing!
We had two weeks at home due to Covid and the school being shut where we were all home learning and having fun on the daily Zoom sessions. We played games, sang songs, went on treasure hunts around our houses and chatted with our friends daily!
You all settled well once back in school and we begun our Christmas preparations. We made cards, decorations and welcomed the Elf into our class enjoying the daily challenges that he set us!
We have been out in the forest and have been continuing to develop our skills in all areas of learning.
Things have certainly been far from normal but we have all continued to try
'to be the best we can be'
You have all been busy little Robins and you really do deserve a fun-filled Christmas with plenty of rest!
Merry Christmas Robins!
Welcome back to school ~ Term 2
Welcome back to school and to Term 2 Robins.
We had a very busy and fun Term 1 and we are now looking forward to an even more exciting Term 2!
This term we will be reading the story ‘Walking Through the Jungle’. Were you all amazed when you walked into your jungle classroom? Could you hear any jungle animals?
You have also received your very first reading book and we are sure that you will all enjoy reading these with your families. We look forward to hearing you read and to seeing you progress with your phonics.
Term 2 of course means Christmas!
Things may be a little different for us all at the moment but we can assure you that this term will be full of festive fun.
In the Blink of an Eye!
They say time flies when you are having fun and the past 7 weeks have certainly whizzed by! Firstly we would like to say a huge well done to all of our Robins. We are immensely proud of how very well you have settled into the routines of the school day and for all your achievements so far, be they big or small!
The children have spent the term reconnecting with friends and building new relationships both with their peers and the adults in the class. They have explored their new environment, inside and out, demonstrating what they can do and having a go at new skills.
Throughout the school day we think about developing our Minster Muscles. We have been particularly focused on teamwork and independence this term, such as helping each other when tidying up or to complete a task and learning how to put our coats on or choosing their own activities. The Robins have been working very hard on these and are doing ever so well.
We hope that you all enjoy your well earned rest and return to school ready for a term full of wild animals and glitter!
Wednesday 7th October
We have had a very productive beginning to our week. We have been learning a lot and continuing our learning in our play both inside and outside. We have been challenged to come home and teach all of you the phonemes we have learnt, s, a, t, p, i and we will continue this with n by the end of the week.
Ask us to sing the Jolly Songs to you.
We have been increasing our knowledge of number and being able to represent a number in many ways.
So, haven't we been busy!
Friday 2nd October
Well done Robins, you have all completed your first week at school and what a busy week it was!
We have started learning our letter sounds during our phonic sessions and you have been finding things around the classroom that are linked to the phonemes s, a and t.
We have been looking at number and finding out what number comes before and after the numbers 1, 2 and 3. We have begun to look at how these numbers can be represented using a range of objects, on tens frames or in a tally.
In Literacy we have been very busy reading and talking about the story Goldilocks and The Three Bears. We have been using lots of story language and even some Maths language when discussing the size of the bears, chairs and beds.
We know that by Friday you were all very tired and ready for a weekend of rest but we really do think that you are all superstars!
Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Bennett, Mrs Garlick,
Mrs Ashworth and Miss Butt
Wednesday 16th September
What superstars you all are Robins!
You have all settled so well and have been enjoying getting to know us and others in our class.
We are all learning the rules and routines of the school day and have been exploring both inside and outside the classroom. We are feeling confident enough to choose our own activities and resources in play and we are new friendships.
Next week you will all stay for lunch which is very exciting.
