Welcome to Robin Class!
Looking for help with teaching your child at home during this tricky time? Scroll down the page to the Home Learning Section!
Robin is an FS2 (Reception) class. You will find us in the room known as The Nest.
Our teacher is Miss Howlin and our teaching assistants are Mrs Watson and Miss Challinor.
It's so nice to hear from your emails how you are all getting on. As well as everything on this Robins Home Learning page remember that there is now a Home Learning Page on the main website menu bar.
I just wanted to also make you aware of a really great blog that early years teachers use a lot from Alistair Bryce Clegg. It now has a Home Learning page which is full of fun practical learning to do around the home.
Here is the link https://abcdoes.com/home-learning/
Take care everyone, keep having fun and stay safe.

There is also a good website called Topmarks where you can find phonics and maths games for your child to play.
We also really recommend Cbeebies Numberblocks - catch it on bbc iplayer but it is also available on DVD which means you can view it in order. It is very good at developing early maths skills - so much so that experts in teaching maths have created a set of teaching materials for teachers to use alongside each episode. It also links really well to work that your children will do in Year One.
This year Robins will be doing Forest Schools on a Tuesday morning during term 1 and term 6.
As some of you may know, some children from the Nest have been having sessions on Tuesday mornings with visitors from Wiltshire Heights Care Home as part of a project called ‘The Intergenerational Project’ where people from different generations join together and share their experiences. We were approached by ITV West Country News who recently visited the school to film part of a session and speak to some of the children and residents. You can read the article and watch the video using the following link: https://www.itv.com/news/westcountry/2019-05-09/wiltshire-care-home-residents-go-back-to-school-to-read-with-4-year-olds/
