Robins 2018 - 2019

Mrs Dalrymple

21.09.18 - This week Year 1 and 2 have homework about money (Year 1 - how much in the jar, and Year 2 - ways of making 10p). You also have to learn your spellings for a test on Monday. Homework books need to be back in by Wednesday. Don't forget to keep up with your reading!


Welcome to Robins Class!

Mrs. Dalrymple teaches the Robins class, which this year consists of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children.

PE days will be Thursday and Friday initially; until October half term. Please make sure all PE kit and school uniform is clearly labelled.



What will we be learning?

Our new topics in September will be Oceans and Seas (Year 1 and 2) and Animals (Reception).

In Science we will be learning about materials and in RE we will be learning about Good News and God.

In Literacy children will be learning about:

  • stories with familiar settings
  • fantasy stories
  • songs and poems with repetitive patterns and phrases
  • signs, labels and lists
  • information texts


In Maths children will be learnng about:

  • number and place value
  • addition
  • money
  • shape
  • mental addition and subtraction
  • symmetry (Year 2)
  • multiplication (Year 2)
  • fractions (Year 2)


Animals - Reception:

We are going to begin by learning about pets. If your children would like to bring in any photos of pets from home that we can keep in school, they may do so. Please do not send original photos in (that you would like back in the same condition) as they will be handled by our children and used for a display! Thank you.

Oceans and Seas - Year 1 and 2:

During the first few weeks, children will be creating seascapes in trays. We would appreciate it if children could collect and bring in a variety of small to medium-sized pebbles that we could use for this. Thank you. In addition, if you have any old plastic trays (or similar - they must be waterproof) then we would be grateful for these also (but these are not essential as we already have some in school).



In the Autumn Term, Year 1 and 2 children will do Guided Reading once per week with Mrs. Dalrymple. They will also read to at least one other adult in school. Reception children will not be doing Guided (group) reading in the first half term, but once they start to bring reading books home (about two or three weeks into the Autumn Term) they will also read twice per week - once to Mrs. Dalrymple and once to another adult. Once Reception children are settled, we will be asking for some parent volunteers to give up half an hour to an hour per week to help with reading in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.



Spelling Tests will be on a Monday for Year 1 and 2 children. Spellings will come home on a Tuesday to be learnt for the following Monday. Year 1 spelling tests will be very informal. The first test will be on the third week of term (Monday, 17th September). If you wish to get ahead, you can find downloadable Autumn Term spellings for both Year 1 and 2 below.
