Robins 2018 - 2019

Mrs Dalrymple

Welcome to Robins Class!

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.


Homework this week - Year 1s and 2s have brought their scripts home today (16.11.18). Learning your lines is your homework for the next two weeks. We need to be script-free in a fortnight! Please bring your scripts into school every day as you will need them for rehearsals.


What will we be learning?

Our topics until Christmas will continue to be Oceans and Seas (Year 1 and 2) and Animals (Reception).

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)


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.


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 4 and 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.


Spelling Tests will be on a Monday for Year 1 and 2 children. Spellings will come home on a Wednesday to be learnt for the following Monday. Please scroll down to see spellings for the second half of the Autumn Term.
