Robins (Reception)

Welcome to Robins! 

The teacher in Robins is Mrs Taylor
The HLTA is Mrs Butler


Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. 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.

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.

Our topic grid - The Gingerbread Man and Christmas

This week we launched our latest focus story; The Gingerbread Man. We have enjoyed acting out the story, creating our own colourful and decorative gingerbread men and baking some scrummy gingerbread too!

Our alien visitor

Last night an alien came down in it's space ship and had a dance in our classroom! We were very excited! We watched the video and danced along, we made a den outside to hide from the alien, we made him a map and lots of posters too!

At lunch we left him a bowl of food and he ate some of it.  He left us a note to say 'thank you' and then he was gone!  What an exciting day.

Our star writer this week has been practicing lots at home and it is paying off in class.  They have been listening carefully for sounds in words and linking them to letters independently.  Well done!

Harvest Pizzas

Harvest Pizzas 1
In RE we have been thinking about thankfulness and God as the creator.  We learned about Harvest Festival being a time to thank God for the food we eat and the farmers that grow the food.  We made harvest pizzas using some of our favourite pizza toppings.

Wild Woodland Walk

This week was our first walk to the Beech woods!  We took our Year 6 buddies with us so that they could pass on their knowledge following their training at the end of the last academic year. 


Take a look at the Woodland walk page (accessed at the bottom of this page) to see more photos!
