Robins (Reception)

Welcome to Robins Class - Reception!


A warm welcome to our lovely new reception children, all looking so smart in their school uniforms and shiny shoes.

We will be updating this page regularly so that you can see all the wonderful things that your child is doing as they become independent, risk taking and creative learners.

We are looking forward to a fantastic year as we explore and learn together!


The Reception Team


Mrs. Read (Class Teacher)

Miss. Coughlan and Mrs. McCartney (Learning Support Assistants)






Hello everyone and welcome back!

I hope you have all had a nice Easter break and have stayed safe and well. I have created a fun packed timetable for you, trying to keep in line with our usual EYFS curriculum for this time of the year. My aim is for our lovely children to have the Reception experience as much as possible whilst they are at home; still allowing them to follow their own interests, use their initiative and develop their enquiring minds. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me via email at any time throughout the week if you have any difficulties or need support.

Love to all the Robins from Mrs. Read x

This Week's Learning Timetables:

29.6.2020 Good morning Robin's Class.


Over the next two weeks we will be discovering a few of the treasures of the seaside. This week we use our senses to make up songs, rhymes and poems. We will learn about rock pools and go on a journey around the world with 'The Snail and the Whale' by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Our maths tasks are all themed around this story with some work on pattern, graphing, addition and odds and evens.

Remember to take a look at some more of the wonderful pictures of our children's home learning and in school learning (below) and please keep emailing me those photographs.

Have a super time exploring and learning this week!!!

 If you need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Our Chinese new year celebrations

Winter Walk

It was a really frosty morning and so after reading the story of Jack Frost we went for a walk to see the evidence he had left behind. He had made feathery patterns and left cold 'snow' on everything. The ground on the field was frozen hard and crunched under our feet. We found leaves and twigs all stuck together with the frost; we watched our warm breath make steam in the air. When we got back to class we warmed up with a hot chocolate.

Who let the Dads in?

We have had a fantastic time over the last 2 weeks, having some of our dads and grandads in school. We are so grateful for all they have taught us, the different experiences and activities and the exciting fun we have had. We hope you enjoy looking at the wonderful photos. 

The gingerbread man

After reading the story of the gingerbread man we decided to make our own gingerbread men.

Fire! Fire!

Reception have been extremely interested in flints, the stone-age, light, electricity and FIRE!! After Bonfire night we collected wood and kindling and learnt how to make a fire. We then lit it using a flint.

Seasonal fun with potions and pumpkins and building up our motor skills...


We love to cook and after reading some seasonal harvest stories we made hedgehog bread and apple pies... Yum!!

Dinosaur Fossil dig.

Due to children's interests and curiosity we set up a dinosaur dig. We discovered many different skulls and matched them to their owners, made our own fossils from clay and drew our finding in an observation booklet. We used magnets to find coins and made rubbings.

An exciting first few days in Robins class

We have all had a brilliant first week and shown what confident learners we are. We have made lots of new friends and have very quickly settled into our new class. We hope you enjoy the photographs!
