Children

Dear Robins Children and Parents,

We hope you have had a wonderful half term break and are feeling refreshed and ready for more learning to begin?!

Term 2 has always been my most favourite time of the year. Working with young children always makes the run up to Christmas an exciting and magical time. It won’t be long until we start rehearsing for our Christmas Nativity! This year is extra special as we will be performing our own play without the support of the Y2 children.

This term is always a really busy one as there is so much to fit in. This week we have been learning about Remembrance Sunday and why we wear poppies. The children have created their own poppy which will be included in our Remembrance display. We have also been discussing why we have Bonfire Night and how Guy Fawkes nearly blew up the Houses of Parliament.

Our main topic is called “Digging in the dirt with the dinosaurs” and I know the children are really looking forward to this. If you have any books or resources we could borrow, to make our topic even more interesting then please bring them in. We promise to take great care of them.

If you are able to offer an hour (or more) a week to hear the children read or help out with small admin jobs, then please let me know, either via the office or by emailing me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  every little helps.

We have PE on a Wednesday with Mr Herring this term, but I will try to fit in 1 more PE lesson each week, so could you ensure that the children’s PE kits are in school every day. Please check that the bags contain the correct kit for indoor and outdoor PE and that daps/trainers still fit.

Many thanks

Mrs F Underwood
