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

PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please make sure all PE kit and school uniform is clearly labelled.

All children should be bringing a water bottle into school which they have access to during the day. Children are allowed to refill their bottles but we ask that they are cleaned out every night at home. Please ensure all bottles are clearly labelled.

What will we be learning?

Welcome to a new and exciting term in Robins class. We hope you all had a lovely break and a very happy Christmas.

Our topics until Easter will be "Changes Within Living Memory" (Year 1 and 2) and "Dinosaurs" (Reception).

In RE, we will be learning about The Kingdom of God, Forgiveness, Salvation and Resurrection.

In Science, Year 1 and 2 will be learning about "Wild Weather".


We aim for children to read to an adult at least twice per week in school and we ask that you aim to read with your child for ten minutes every day at home. Please record a comment in your child's reading log and ensure that your child brings their reading log to school every day. If your child has read their school book please ensure that they re-read it to help develop fluency. Ask them questions and see if they can then tell you what happens in the book. If your child is completely fluent and has a good understanding, then please read books from home or even better, visit your local library.

Please note, Guided Reading with Mrs. Dalrymple (or Mr. Orford for some Year 2 children) will now take place once per fortnight (or once per week where possible).


Phonics is taught five times per week and children are split into three groups. At present, Mrs. Wood teaches Phase 6, Ms. Kirk teaches Phase 5 and Mrs. Dalrymple teaches Phase 2. We review the Phonics groups half-termly and adjust them accordingly. We follow the DfE Letters and Sounds programme and we also dip into Jolly Phonics in Phase 2 and 3. You can find all sorts of downloadable apps to help you.


Spellings will come home on a Tuesday or Wednesday to be learnt for the following Monday.

Happy 2019!
