Robin Class – Reception

Welcome to our page, Robin class families!

Firstly, we would like to say welcome to Willow Park, it has been so lovely to meet the youngest members of our school and welcome all you new families into our school community. We are very much looking forward to the year ahead.

In Robin class this term we will be focusing mainly on getting used to being in school, playing with our new friends and practising the behaviours needed to be successful learners.

At Willow Park we use an enquiry-based curriculum called Light up Learning. It focuses on people, places and stories which challenge the children with their learning in the local area.

Our main enquiry question this term is ‘What can we see?’

The focus will be on thinking about who our families are, where we live, what our local area looks like and what makes our school so special? We will be making our own picture frames out of sticks and filling them with pictures and photos. If you could email a photo of your child with their family, to the school office, that would be lovely for them to share with the rest of the class.

Reading and writing

We will be holding a phonics meeting later on in the term to share with you what approach we use to teach children to read and write and how you can best support your child at home with this. We will begin to send books home from next week for you to share with your child and will change them twice a week on a Monday and a Friday, although children are always welcome to change them more regularly if they wish.

If you have any worries or concerns, please come and see us at the end of the day after the class has been dismissed.
