Welcome to the Robins ~ Let’s get messy!


I am looking forward to the Autumn Term and a new school year – I am sure your children will settle very quickly in to the Year 1 routine.

Our topic this term is Muck, Mess and Mixtures and we have an exciting messy mixtures morning planned, where the children will dive in and get their hands sticky and covered in paint, jelly and draw with wibbly clay. Throughout the term they will squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest mixtures and liquids. They will write recipes, instructions, lists, riddles and poems – there are loads of scrummy words to describe messy mixtures!


Some other key information for you...

P.E is every Wednesday and Friday. On Wednesdays Mrs Harris will be teaching Dance and Music and on Fridays we will be doing PE outside, so please send your children with tracksuit bottoms or leggings.

We aim to change reading books twice a week, usually on Tuesdays and Fridays and have some parent helpers to listen to readers. If you would like to listen to readers or help in the classroom, please let me know.

Homework will be set on Fridays and can be handed in anytime during the week, before the following Friday.

If you have any questions or concerns please pop to the school office or make an appointment and I will be able to sort out any worries that you have.
