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. For the first 4 weeks we will be in and around our school grounds. From Friday 14th October we will be visiting the woods. 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.
Wild Woodland Walk
This week we started our woodland walk training. Over the next 4 weeks we will be learning how to stay safe when learning outdoors and practicing the good choices we will need to be making when we leave the school grounds and visit our local woodland. The first week was all about tree safety. We learned how to safely walk with sticks and how to gauge if a branch is strong and secure enough for us to hang from. In week two we began to write our 'woodland promise'; a set of rules we will use to help keep us and the creatures we share the woods with, safe. We also learned how to safely break a stick and had fun comparing the lengths of different sticks!
