Welcome to Robins Class

Robin Red Breast Bird Facts | Erithacus Rubecula - The RSPB

Miss Larkins, Mrs Davis, Mrs Acri & Mrs Lutrell-Marlwelcome you to Robins Class!

Our Vision

Our vision is to create a natural, calm learning environment that promotes children’s independence and their resilience. We want the learning opportunities to be developmentally appropriate which is why there will be lots of opportunities for children to learn through play. When we provide these play opportunities, they will be closely linked to our adult-led teaching sessions and the National Curriculum. Through play, children will have lots of opportunities to practice what they have learnt over and over again to ensure that the learning is being stored in their long-term memory. We want children to have a love of learning and we want to promote their natural curiosity.

Phonics

The children are taught discrete phonics lessons everyday following the Twinkl program.  We teach the children the sounds in order for them to read and write with increasing proficiency. At the end of Year 1 (in June) the children will be completing a Phonics Screening Check which is a legal requirement for each child. They will apply their phonic knowledge to read 40 words, 20 of which are real and 20 which are not (we call these alien words).

The weekly spellings that the children receive are linked to the sounds and words that they learn in their phonics lessons. It is important that these are practised at home.
