Welcome to Robin Class!
Ms Coughlan-Bos, Mrs Francis, Mrs Fulcher and Mrs Cummins are delighted to welcome you to our class page!
We encourage the children to read every day. When you have listened to your child read, please ensure you write this down in their reading records as these are collected in and checked once a week. We understand that in Robin Class, not all children want to read to an adult but please still ask them questions about their book to practise their comprehension skills and note down these conversations in their reading records as well. If children are reading alone, we encourage them to record this in their reading records themselves.
Children are expected to read often to develop fluency and we aim to listen to every child read at least once a week so they need to have their reading book and reading record in school every day. In order to develop independence, the children are expected to take responsibility for changing their own reading books during registration time.
Spellings will be given out on a Monday and children will be tested on these spellings on the following Monday. The spelling words are taken from EdShed where children can practice their spellings each week. Children should be able to spell every word on this list by the end of year 4. There are different ways to approach spelling practise which we look at in class and there are some suggestions on the class page. Please come and ask if you want to know how best to support your child with learning their spellings. Children should bring their Spelling Journal into school every day.
PE days change throughout the year so please make sure you check the weekly email sent to all parents and carers for updates. Children should arrive in school wearing the appropriate school PE kit. and that they are weather appropriate i.e. tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts in the colder weather whilst shorts and t-shirts can be worn in the warmer weather.
Topic Home Learning
As well as daily reading, spelling practise and maths work, there will also be Home Learning grid of activities for the children to choose from. The Home Learning grid will be given to the children to do at the start of each half term and this will be due in the week before the end of the half term. This will be a larger piece of work that the children are encouraged to do creatively and spend a long time working on.
