Welcome to our class page!
Our class teacher is Mrs Daley and we also have Miss Mothersole in with us to help us. We have had a lovely start to the term and really enjoyed the immersion days when something very strange appeared in the school grounds- see below for photographs. I am really enjoying getting to know the routines and daily life at Bisham and I would like to thank you all for making me feel so welcome.
In Writing this term we will be starting our focus on non-fiction texts, particuarly looking at fact files. We will then be moving on to look at poetry and foccusing on rhyme, finishing the term by looking at narrative and a story about a space man.
In Maths we will be learning about:
Year 1: Place value, addition to 10 and numbers to 20.
Year 2: Place value, addiiton and subtraction and multiplication and division.
Please visit our page regularly to see what we are up to!
Our Christian value this half term is Generosity.
PE: Our PE days have changed! All of Robins will be having PE on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Please practise getting changed at home so you can be super speedy in school!
Please ensure that the children have their PE kit in school every day as we try to keep the timetable flexible so that we can make the most of the weather and other opportunities to teach PE.

If your child reads at least four times a week for ten weeks throughout the term then they will receive a certificate which they can proudly show off. So please remember to write in the partnership book about the reading your child has been doing!
Homework is to be completed bi-weekly. It will go out on a Monday to be returned on the following Monday-ready for Mrs Daley to go through with the class that week.
Spellings will now be sent home on a Monday, ready for a test the following Friday. We will be practising some of the spellings in school, but, as always, your support would be greatly appreciated with the practise of this.
This terms Topic homework is due in on Monday 29th October, so that we can display it for viewing afternoon on .Thursday 1st November.
Week beginning 1st October.
We have been starting our days by doing our Maths daily 5 questions which we do as soon as we come in. We then look in our books for corrections and make these first thing in the morning. After assembly, we have been watching newsround and keeping up to date with the current affairs. Our world map is developing some very interesting stories from all around the world!
In Maths, we are learning about ordinal numbers and also starting to learn how to use a number line. We are still working on our number formation and counting 1:1 too.
In Maths, we are moving on to looking at addition and subtraction. We will be using part whole models, number lines and bar models to represent our findings.
We are finishing off our poetry topic and we will be writing our own repetitive poetry. We have enjoyed looking at rhyme and descriptive language although our own poems do not have to rhyme- just entertain!
We are thinking about colour using the picture 'The Starry Night' by Vincent Van Gogh.
Tapestry is a website where we upload images and videos of your children every week, so that you can see what they have been up to in class. Please check this regularly to see what Robins have been doing!
