Welcome to Robins 

Welcome back to our Second Term! 

Save the date:


Non-Uniform day - 16th November bring in sweets for the Christmas Bazaar (24th November)


Nativity - 12th December 10am and 6pm (children need to be dropped off at school at 5:30pm)

Children are expected to be in for both performances as everyone is a part of the production. Please can you let me know ASAP if you think it might be tricky for you. 


Pantomime  - 17th December - make sure you have paid for this, also done via Parent Mail. 


Christmas is nearly here► . . .

In the front entrance of school there is a magical post box where your child can post their Christmas cards to their friends. 


It is useful to label each envelop with the class name so our delivery service of elves (children) are able to sort the cards successfully and quickly during this busy time of year!  


A little tip would be to stagger writing your cards with your child and aim to do a couple each day. Little hands can get tired easily and we want to keep the love of writing embedded for them. 


We subscribe to this fantastic website so you can enjoy excellent activities at home with your child as well as the children using it in school.

For robins our password and user is:


This will give you access to a range of activities suitable for their age. You can see on the photo there is an option for assignments - if you click on here you will need to support your child completing these. They are short fun activities that I can then print off and you can celebrate in their learning journeys once they are completed. 


The weather is getting colder but that will not stop us being outside on a Friday morning. 

In Winter the children will need at least three layers to keep warm. We find that base layer leggings, trousers and the waterproof dungarees work well for their bottom half, and for the top half, a base layer top, long sleeved top, good quality fleece and waterproof jacket is a good mix. Merino wool and/or polyester blend – for a warm base layers.

Please be aware that any cotton layers will soak up sweat and will leave you child cold, even on cold wet days your child will get hot and sweaty under their waterproofs. Its not about the amount of layers your child has on to keep warm and dry its about the type of fabrics the layers are in.


Decathlon in Oxford have some great cheap under layers I have found. 

Children are assigned to a house - we collect smiles for ourselves but also house points for our whole school team. Attached is a list of what house your child in Robin class is in.

Classroom rules and how you can help at home:

At home it would be really useful to chat to your child about the classroom rules:

kind hands,

kind feet

and kind words. 


Discuss with them what that means and also have a chat about what they could they do

if they feel someone else is not using these rules.

Encourage your child to talk to an adult but most

importantly to say very loudly 'stop'. This will ensure adults quickly help in all situations. 


We have a gorgeous class of children who can become very excitable

and sometimes forget their own powers with their hands when they are trying to share their excitment. with their friends.  

Save the date:

Phonics workshop: 6th November 19:00 - this an opportunity to learn how we teach phonics, how you can support your child at home with their reading and writing as well as have some fun, drink tea/coffee and eat a few biscuits! This is not for children to attend. If you are unable to attend please do not worry as I will be uploading the PowerPoint and resources onto our class page after the event. 


Parents Evening: - 13th and 15th November 15:30 - 7:00. 

It is not expected to bring your child to the meeting but they are more than welcome if you have an earlier slot. You can book these via Parent Mail - if you are not sure how to do this please do visit the office as soon as you can and Mrs Appleyard will be happy to help you. Please do come and speak to me if you would like an appointment on the 15th in the afternoon as I am more than happy to accommodate anyone who finds it tricky after school or in the evening. 


Non-Uniform day - 16th November bring in sweets for the Christmas Bazaar (24th November)

Dear Parents, 

Tomorrow (Tuesday 9th October) the children need to arrive at school at the normal time of 8:40. All children in Robins class need a pack lunch as we will be eating it at the church. 

You are welcome to come to the church service starting at 1:30 or pick up after the service at about 2:30. (PLEASE do let me know in the morning if you are picking up from church - I will leave a signing sheet on the table on the playground.)

If you are going to be picking up from school we will aim to be back at 3:10 but bare in mind we have little legs and may take a while to walk back after the service. 

Look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. The children have been singing beautifully today ready to perform in the church. A little treat if you are able to come. 

Best wishes, 

Mrs Potter
