Mrs Bramwell

Welcome to the Robins – Reception and Year 1 Team -  Class Motto - Of all the things in the world you can choose, choose to be kind.

Check out our photos below in the display work section and the gallery section to view our learning and curriculum. We change reading books Monday and Thursday. We change library books Thursdays. Please try to send the books on the correct day. Year 1 homework is given out every Monday. Please return on a Monday (or before if you want to).

Please have a look at our long term plans, or just ask, or email if you have any questions about your child's learning.

EYFS Intent 

The Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years. The areas of learning can be found in the statutory framework which can easily be found online. Our Reception children (Foundation Stage 2) are taught by our Early Years Practitioner Mrs Bramwell with support from Mrs Gerrard in a mixed age class with Year 1.

Mrs Bramwell and Mrs Gerrard are available if you require any support to help you and your child especially in our daily morning meet and greet. You can share your home wow momnets in your parent partnership book. Your childs learning journey is available in school for you to view at anytime.

Our EYFS policy can be found below. On this page you can find documents specifically for the EYFS.

EYFS Implementation

In Robins we love to learn. Our calm, well equipped classroom and enclosed outdoor covered play area provide a secure learning environment. We have lots of fun learning together. Our classroom encourages our children to learn and explore, work actively, and create and think critically. We are led by the children's interests and this forms our curriculum and topics in reception. The highest level of involvement occurs in child-initiated activity. The reception children can pursue their own interests supported by skilled staff with teachable moments. We develop their learning with our  profeesional judgement to deliver a balance of in the moment learning as well as planning next steps for each child and delivering adult led activities.  We maintain resources in the environment giving children open ended and imaginative opportunities to select what they want to learn and what they want to do in each area.  The EYFS adult team observe, interact and enhance the learning at each child’s level in every moment possible in all areas of the early learning goals (ELG).

EYFS Impact

All children will make good progress in all areas from their individual starting points therefore getting the best possible start to their life and developing the knowledge and skills needed to reach and exceed their potential in KS1 and KS2. They will have good personal, physical and social skills, demostarte a positive attitude to learning and use their phonics knowledge to read accurately with increasing speed and fluency. They will write correctly punctuated simple sentences, understand and use early numbers and enjoy listening to stories. 


Year 1

Our year 1 pupils follow the national curriculum and have mini topics - please see our Year 1 Long Term Plans September 2021 below for further details

Robins Phonics

We follow lettters and sound and twinkl for our program of phonics and use a range of reading books to support phonics too. Books are selected by teachers to match children's phonics learning and reading needs. To support you child with reading phonics please have a look at the articulation of letters and sounds on you tube or any Mr Thorn does phonics sites. Please ask if you need any support with reading and phonics and have a look at the 'how to suppport reading at home' document below.
