Robins 2018 - 2019

Mrs Dalrymple

Please don't forget to download the White Rose letter below so that you can access online Maths homework. Thank you.

Year 1 Spellings: Tests are being carried out informally. Please continue to learn the spellings according to the downloadable file. Even if children miss a test, it is still important that they learn the words. Thank you.

Mrs. Dalrymple teaches the Robins class, which this year consists of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children. For the time being, Mrs. Roberts teaches Year 2 Maths and Literacy.

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.


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 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.


If there is anything you wish to discuss with me, please don't hesitate to come and see me at the end of the day or make an appointment via Mrs. Jones in the office. Thank you.
