Robins (Reception)

Welcome to Robins! 

Robins is the reception class at Smannell and Enham C of E Primary School. The objective of our Early Years Team is to create an exciting and effective environment for children and we believe a child-led approach, combined with some focussed, adult-led teaching is the best means to achieve this. Through creating positive relationships, we support and stimulate the children to help them embed and make their learning more meaningful. In our experience, children who have started their learning journey in this way are more independent, resilient, motivated and effective learners.

The teacher in Robins is Mrs Taylor
The HLTA is Mrs Butler and on a Friday our LSA is Mrs Gregory


Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.  We kindly ask that long hair is tied back and earrings are removed on these days.


Every Friday morning we take our learning outdoors.  We ask that children come to school in their woodland clothes and bring their uniform to change into later.


Please make sure your child has the appropriate clothing and footwear in school for these days.

For updates on our woodland walk and to see some of the fun things we do in the woods, take a look at the woodland walk page on the website (at the bottom of this page).

Our star writer this week is...

This week's star writer has been very keen to have a go at using his phonic ears to listen for sounds in simple words.  He told me this week; "I'm getting really good, aren't I!"  Well done Star Writer!

We would like to say a BIG thank you to all the parents that were able to join us on our share afternoon to celebrate our first half term in school. Inspired by our learning of The Little Red Hen, there was mask making, cutting, hen decorating and cake decorating available (we had baked the cakes ourselves that morning!). The retelling of the traditional was a highlight for the teachers and it was a pleasure to watch the children proudly show off their classroom.

This week we celebrated Harvest in church alongside the rest of the school.  Earlier in the week, to help with the children's understanding of Harvest, we picked some apples from the tree in our outdoor area, washed them, chopped them and topped with crumble mix! We all got to try the crumble and some of us went back for seconds (and thirds)! We loved the baking experience so much we are planning more next week, so watch this space for more photos of our baking fun...

Our current theme is 'All about me'.  This theme will allow us to get to learn more about our new members of Robins class. Thank you to those parents and children who have already brought their 'all about me' chatter boxes into school. We will begin to share these this week. If you haven't completed your special box yet, there is still plenty of time and we would love to see them in school.
