'Be Kind, Work Hard'

Welcome to Robins class pageRobin Red Breast Bird Facts | Erithacus Rubecula - The RSPB

Miss Larkins & Miss Pearce welcome 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 Letters and Sounds 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 phonics knowledge to read 40 words, 20 of which are real and 20 which are not (we call these alien/nonsense words).

There is more information about the Phonics Screening Check here:

Below is a link to the letters and sounds document that we follow to teach phonics:

Below are the sounds that the children will be learning this year. We will be building on their knowledge from EYFS as they previously would been taught Phase 2 and Phase 3. There will be a big focus on children learning Phase 4 and Phase 5 and applying this knowledge to read and write words containing those sounds.

Please continue to read with your child as much as possible (we recommend just a few minutes every day). If you read at home - remember to sign the reading diary to say you have done so (with a comment if possible).

They will also get a sticker on their reading cards. When they have filled these, they will receive a prize from Mrs Lewis in celebration assembly!

 

 

Sentence Writing Criteria

In Year 1 we teach the children how to use capital letters and full stops. They learn how to separate each word with a finger space so it is easy to read back their own work. We have been learning how to make writing more interesting by using adjectives and conjunctions. 

We have introduced a new handwriting scheme and the children have been learning how to write in cursive handwriting.
