Stay and Play Session- Wednesday 24th October, 9:30- 10:30

Teacher - Miss K. Taylor

Teaching Assistants - Mrs J. Millward and Amelia O'Shea




Our topic this term: Owls

This term in Robins class we will be learning all about Owls. This topic has been chosen by the children as they wanted to learn and look at the book 'Owl Babies'. We will be looking at using drama to help understand the characters, looking at front covers of books and also understanding how phonics can help us write. We will look at owls and their features, as well as understanding the term nocturnal animals and how it is not just owls that are nocturnal. We are also having a visit from some owls and their owners and will even get to hold them! 


P.E takes place on a  Friday morning.

Please make sure all P.E kits are in school all week because we may not always do P.E on Fridays. You are welcome to take P.E kits home on Friday afternoon and during school holidays.


Music takes place on a Tuesday morning with Mrs James.


Robins class are looking for some help!
If you have any spare time and would like to volunteer in Robins class to either hear readers or work with groups of children, please speak to Miss Taylor. We would love to have you in our class. 



Reading: Please ensure to read with your child as much as possible and record this in their reading journals. Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays, if you would like a new reading book before the book changing days please come into the classroom and change it. 

Tricky words: Please go through these with your child after reading with them. Tricky words are words that can not be sounded out they just need to know what they say. Once your child is confident with a set of tricky words, new ones will be given. 


Sound mats: If your child has one of the sound mats, please go through this with them after reading. Please do not go through the sounds in order because the children will learn the order off by heart. Every Friday morning, the children will do this with Miss Taylor. If the children can say the sounds confidently a new sheet will be given.
