ROBINS - Years 1 & 2


Welcome to Years 1 & 2  - The Robins Class!


This year, working along side the children in the Robins class are myself and Mrs Ethelston . Our aim is to create a calm and caring learning environment, where all children feel happy and supported within school. If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything, please feel free to write a comment in the home link book or pop into school and speak to any of us.  

We will be using this webpage a lot this year to post lots of useful and important information, such as home learning, class letters and celebratory news.

What is the Spring term all about?

The topic this term is ‘To Market, To Market.’ The children will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about Oswestry as a market town. They will also explore local weather patterns as well as different climates all over the World. They will match fruit and vegetables to each content on a World map. They will also prepare questions to ask people about their memories of Oswestry markets a long time ago, such as a Grandparent. The children will create a ‘Then’ and ‘Now’ picture showing Oswestry market and will consider why Oswestry was chosen as a market place a long time ago. In Art, the children will explore the work of artists such as Giuseppe Arcimboldo and they will create a portrait of themselves using skills and techniques practised in their self-made sketchbooks. In DT, the children will explore, design, make a healthy vegetable soup and then evaluate their product. In Music, they will listen to a range of music from around the World (and sing songs linked to the topic) and will learn about the layout of an orchestra. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.






Here is a useful list of our regular class activities. (Please note that these may change on occasions).
PEThursday - All children need to make sure they have their P.E kit in school for this day. Please make sure that all of their P.E kit is labelled.

Swimming: Summer Term only (Wednesday) - All children need to make sure they bring in their swimming kit for this day. They will need a navy swimming costume/ trunks and a towel. Again, please make sure that all of their swimming kit is labelled.

Homework: We always give out new homework on a Friday. To give us the opportunity to mark and look at their homework, we ask that all children hand in their homework by the following Thursday at the latest. 
Spelling Test: Thursday - Children will be given 10 spellings to learn every week. They will follow the LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method to help them learn their spellings. 


Homelink books: These must be handed in every morning so that we can receive any important messages or to record if your child has read. 


Reading - If your child has read three times or more a week their name will go into a chance box. They will then be in for a chance of winning a Meadows School bookmark and a pencil! For the chance of earning a special reading sticker, they must read 5 or more times a week.


Many Thanks
