Events & Daily Activities (in & out of school)

We work on developing the early skills that children need for successful learning. Phonics, Counting and Communication skills are taught daily. We like to learn through exploration, investigation and play – this means we often get messy!

Learning to Communicate effectively underpins everything we do in Robin Class and we operate a whole communication approach. We use symbols, PECS and Makaton in order to help each child find a way to express themselves in their own way.

We hold regular swimming sessions in our lovely Hydro pool; we have weekly singing and signing sessions with our SaLTA, Susie; and of course, we all love PE with our PE specialist Rachel B!

Everything is exciting in Robins! We especially love sensory play, using the plasma touch screen and of course, playing outside on the bikes! We also love messy art sessions… a bag with a change of clothes in is an essential piece of kit in Robin Class!

Curriculum Information – Summary

Robin Class is just like any other Reception Class in the UK in that we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (the EYFS). Within this curriculum are 7 areas of learning, including working on self help and self care skills, friendship skills, reading, writing and counting, as well as ICT and Imaginative skills. To find out more about the EYFS, click here:  http://www.foundationyears.org.uk/files/2012/03/Development-Matters-FINAL-PRINT-AMENDED.pdf

All children have a key person working closely with them throughout the year and all children create a Learning Journey, which documents their progress and all the lovely thing that they get up to

What we do best / What makes our class amazing?

Robin Class is like a big family. We nurture and we care – and we extend that beyond the children in the class to their families as well. We understand the joys and the difficulties that many of our families face  daily and we will do whatever we can to support them.

The Robin Class team work closely with each other and with parents to ensure that children are cherished as individuals and that sessions are planned with each individual child’s needs in mind.

And we know how to have fun! Robin Class will always put a smile on your face! 🙂
