Robin - Reception

Welcome to Robin Class!

Spring 1 2023

The children are really enjoying our topic ‘Hot and Cold’. We have been thinking about the story ‘Penguin on Holiday’ and creating lots of penguin art. We also celebrated ‘Penguin Awareness Day' on 20th January when the children made penguin cards to take home to their family.

On Monday 23rd January we celebrated Chinese New Year. We learnt lots of information about preparing for Chinese New Year.  The children also made lanterns, listened to stories and tasted lots of lovely Chinese food!


Autumn 2 2022

The children continue to enjoy taking part in Dough Disco sessions, where they listen carefully to instructions to manipulate play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine motor control.

The children enjoyed our ‘Nursery Rhyme Week’ celebration in November where we focused on the nursery rhymes: ‘Wind the Bobbin Up’, ‘Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer’, Five Current Buns in a Baker’s Shop’ and ‘Incy Wincey Spider’.

The term was finished with many Christmas activities and the children especially enjoyed decorating our tree! 

Autumn 1 2022

The children have enjoyed settling into Robin Class and making new friends.  They have been finding out about what makes each of us special and sharing their 'marvelous me' information bags.  The children have also enjoyed sessions in Forest School and going on a listening walk.

Summer 1 2022

The children have been practising their sentence writing using pictures and information about Goldilocks and her adventures.  They made jam sandwiches for Golidlocks because she had written letters to them. They have also been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly with caterpillars to look after and observe.  They look forward to seeing the butterflies and watching them fly away!

The  children had a wonderful enrichment day dressed up as characters from Encanto.  The children experienced a range of activities linked to themes from the film such as considering what makes them special and have non magical gifts.  The children explored the life and culture in Columbia where the story was set.  They also had an art and expressive design afternoon. They made a flower to celebrate Isabella’s gift and a jaguar to celebrate Antonio’s gift.  

Spring 2 2022

The children used a picture book to find out what life is like for a child in Australia.  They enjoyed finding out lots of information about creatures that live in the Great Barrier Reef. They created the world map on a plate and could identify the sea and land.

Spring 1 2022

The children have enjoyed learning about the season of Winter.  They had a wonderful theatre experience which included a special lunch in school and then a visit to the Egg Theatre in Bath to watch a performance of 'The Snow Mouse'.

Comic Relief Bad Hair Day

Robin Class had fun with their 'bad hairstyles' to raise money for Comic Relief!

Autumn Term 2 2021

Robin Class have been learning about the seasons and going out into the Forest School area.  They made leaf crowns and leaf puppets and enjoyed these activities very much!  

Autumn Term 1 2021

We are enjoying settling into school.  We are making new friends and learning about each other through our topic 'All about me'.  We had great fun doing a listening walk wearing our big ears.  We are also very proud of our self-portrait paintings!

Summer Term 2 2021

This term we are spending lots of time outside and will be learning all about minibeasts. We started our topic by being scientists and using magnifying glasses to look very closely at different toy minibeasts. We have shared what we already know and are looking forward to finding out more.


We have also been lucky to have a visit from Animals 2U Southwest where we got to hold some very interesting minibeasts - a cockroach, stick insect and giant millipede!

Summer Term 1 2021


We enjoyed learning about trains using the story 'The train ride' by June Crebin.  We made our own train and went on a 'train ride' around our school grounds. It was lots of fun!

Robin Class enjoyed the Holly Hop!

Autumn Term 2 - 2020


In Robin Class the children are getting excited to learn about space using the Oxford Reading Tree story 'The Moon Jet'.  They are looking forward to making their own moon jet to take on a space adventure!  They have also been learning about autumn festivals including firework night and recently explored leaves in the outdoor area during their Forest School session.

We enjoyed painting a leaf shaped candle holder and also made leaf crowns at Forest School!

Autumn Term 1 - 2020


Robin Class Reception children are enjoying settling into their new class and outdoor learning area.  They are making friends and completing lots of activities!

We enjoy being in Robin class!

Robin Class children enjoyed going on a listening hunt.  They made large 'listening ears' and could hear so many different sounds around the school!
