Welcome to Robins!
We are excited about working with the newest members of Worstead School and about all of the fantastic fun to be had and learning to be done.
Please read as much as possible at home, ideally daily. This includes both reading to children and listening to them read or tell stories. There will be a phonics/early-reading information event in the Autumn term to explain more about our reading curriculum.
After October half term, children will be able to earn stamps for reading at least three times a week at home. Filling up their ‘stamp cards’ will earn them certificates.
Please encourage your child to do a little bit of counting, daily if possible. This includes some:
- rote counting
- counting objects
- counting forwards and backwards.
- counting from 0 or starting from a different number.
Please keep a few spare items in your child’s bag (such as pants, knickers and socks). This helps if children have a toilet accident or get wet in puddles.
We like to open up our outside area as much as possible. On wet days, children can bring in wellies, waterproofs and spare socks for playing in the rain.
Please label all clothes, water bottles, lunch boxes, bags, coats, wellies, gloves, hats etc.
Once the first few weeks of term are out of the way, we would like parents to drop off children on the playground rather than coming into the classroom each morning. This helps to build up independence for the children. If your child wishes to show you something in the classroom, or they would like help changing their book, we are happy for you to come in at the end of the school day.
If there are any questions at all, please speak to us on the gate, email our class email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) or make an appointment via the office.
