Welcome to Robins!

Inside the back page of your child's reading log is your child's Google Classroom login details.  There are  links to games and activities in our virtual Robins classroom as well as further links below.  Our daily 'live' teaching sessions will take place on Google Classroom.  Please log in 5 minutes early so we can make a prompt start.  Our sessions will be 9:00-9:30 and again 2:00-2:30.  


As well as these 'live' sessions, there will be daily topic challenges uploaded onto Tapestry (from 9:30 everyday) as well as a daily story read by one of the Robins team (available from 3pm everyday).


We would love to see some of your home learning.  You can take photos and/or videos and share them with us on Tapestry or Google Classroom.

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 and Miss Hart is our LSA.


PE is taught on a Thursday.  We kindly ask that long hair is tied back and earrings are removed or taped on these days.


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


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

On our welly walk this week we were looking for signs of Autumn’s arrival. We enjoyed looking for mushrooms, acorns, conkers , colourful leaves and berries.  We talked about the animals that are busy collecting food in the Autumn and used some of the natural objects we had collected to decorate our hedgehog pictures and our clay hedgehogs!

We cannot wait to look through the children’s chatterboxes and chatter tubes over the coming weeks. They are a great way of getting to know one another better and to recognise those that share similar interests to ourselves. The chatterboxes are just part of the activities we are doing in class linked to our first theme; fabulous me!
