Great team work from Robins today. We have four fantastic skeletons thanks to fantastic communication skills, cutting skills and excitement of making a human skeleton for our science topic.
Fantastic child led activities with the foam jigsaw pieces and 2d shapes. One minute the pieces have been made into a plane and the next a road. Great imagination Robins!

Home learning will be given on a Monday and due the following Monday, for example, given on the 9.9.19 and due on the 16.9.19.
Home learning will be in their black/ blue home learning book that should be kept in your child's book bag and placed in the wooden basket on a Monday morning ready to be marked and new home learning to be given.
Year one books in the basket near the window.
Reception books in the basket under the snack area.
Year one spellings:
Every Monday Year ones will use the spellings given the Monday before and a score will be recorded. The spellings will be in their home learning book. It is very important these are practised at home both orally and written down. As well as this it is important the child understands what the word means and how to use it and that is why we complete spelling checks in context. To aid with this we use Purple mash to help make spelling fun and memorable.
Your child's login details are stuck in the back of the black home learning book. We use active learn during the school day so we ask that your child practises at home how to log themselves into Active Learn. When using Active Learn you need to allow pop ups as the e-books open in new window. Each e-book has a small picture of a bug and these are the children to click on and a question will be provided about the book for your child to answer. Please ensure your child answers the bugs.
Your child's login details are stuck in the back of the black home learning book. We use Purple Mash during the school day so we ask that your child practises at home how to log themselves into Purple Mash. Purple Mash has a range of activities that can be completed and saved to share with us at school. As well as this we can set tasks for your child to complete at home. Please note some activities will not save, however, like Active Learn we are sent an activity report.
Your child will bring a reading book home each night these will be changed regularly in school; Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We encourage re-reading books to allow for questions to arise to ensure a better understanding. We advise parents to read at least 4 times a week with your child. Please ensure you record when your child has read and to who in their reading record. We also advise a mix between e-books and physical books.
The purple stage / picture books: These books are to encourage your children to look at the illustrations and infer what is happening in the story and what might happen next. Therefore, these books will not be changed each day to allow your child to build up their confidence.
If your child reads four times or more in a week they will be given a raffle ticket which will be stuck in there reading record and a chance to win a prize in the Friday Collective Worship.
Word reading + Understanding = A GREAT READER!
If your child has a WOW moment please record it and inform Robin class staff of the WOW moment and any photos you may have of it. These moments can be record in their reading records or just simply passed on. WOW moments can be things like riding a bike, baking a cake or achieving something they had found difficult.
