Maths - Step 2 - I am learning to add numbers using pictorial representations.
Wow! Where do I begin, we've had a super first half term with the lovely Robins and throughly enjoyed our first topic together. The children have settled in so well and I feel very proud of them all for making the step up from Year 1 to Year 2 brilliantly. I can't believe how much we've accomplished in our 'Whole World in my Pocket' topic and it's great to see the progress that they are making in their books! I am sure you were all very proud of your children at celebration of work and seeing how far they've already come in such a short space of time! From talking to the children the highlights of the topic was receiving their map puzzle from Barnaby Bear and they have also all throughly enjoyed making their non-fiction books about The New Forest and The Amazon Rainforest. The work they have produced is exceptional and it was lovely to watch as the children proudly showed you all their work.
The children returned today fresh and ready for our new term together! We've had a very exciting day as we launched into our 'Storytastic' topic and had a visit from two authors! The children had great fun listening to their workshop, making their own shoes to be used as a stimulus for writing and finally planning their very own 'lost shoe' story. The children will be writing their own stories tomorrow during literacy and are very excited about this! We had some lovely shoe ideas today including horse shoes, football boots and a 'JoJo Bow' inspired shoe! In the run up to Christmas the children will also begin preparations for our end of term production of 'Cinderella'. Please find the attached topic overview below for full details of what your children will be learning in 'Storytastic' this half term.
The Robins class also received a very exciting certificate today in assembly for the 'best class participation' towards the NSPCC's Boogie Bounce day. Thank you so much to everyone for your generous contributions towards this worthy cause.
Thank you for all your continued support. It is lovely to see how much the children have been reading and doing extra work over the holidays.
I hope you all enjoyed the half term break. If you do have any questions please feel free to come in and see us.

Welcome to Robins!
Mrs Flood welcomes you to the Robins page of our school website!
This year in Robins class the children will be working with myself (Mrs Flood), Mrs Wallace and Mrs Parrish. We are also lucky enough to have support from Miss Poole on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon.
Welcome to Year 2, I am so impressed with how well you have all settled in. I have enjoyed hearing all about the lovely things you did during the summer holidays. So far the Robins have been busy getting used to new routines and have been finding their way around the classroom! Mrs Wallace and myself have throughly enjoyed getting to know the children better. We feel very lucky to be working with such wonderful children and are excited to spend the rest of the year learning together. This year we have four little friends in our class ... our learning monsters; Cam, Eddie, Ace and Roo! So far the children have been working very hard to be like this role models and I am very proud of the things that they have accomplished already.
I have been so impressed with the amount of children that completed the Big Read during the holidays, it has been lovely to see them beaming whilst sharing their certificate and medal with the class. The children have today chosen a reading book and brought this home along with their new reading diary. Every time you read with your child at home, please ensure it is recorded in the reading diary as these are checked weekly. Please ensure that these are kept in book bags as it is important that these are in school daily so we can also record any reading to update you on your child's progress.
Our first topic this half term will be "Whole world in my Pocket". The children have all received a letter from Barnaby Bear asking for their help! Inside was a map that was cut into pieces with two countries missing! The children quickly identified that the missing countries were Brazil and the United Kingdom. Poor Barnaby Bear is in the United Kingdom but wants to visit his friend Eliana in Brazil! He doesn't know how to get there and requires the children's help! They will not only help him but learn about the countries as they do. They will all make an exciting information poster to compare the United Kingdom and Brazil for you to see at celebration of work!
I will be keeping this page up to date with as many things as I can, but if there is anything you think I can help you with by putting it online for you all to see, then please do let me know. I am available daily, so if you do have any concerns or questions then please do come and see me at the end of school day. Thank you for your continued support.
