Miss Robinson's Class
Welcome to Class 2CR's page. We are a lovely group of Year 5 and 6 children who love to learn new things!
Our class teacher is Miss Robinson. Mrs Dixon and Mrs Haslam help us with our learning each day.
We are also really lucky to have Spanish lessons with Mrs Lauder every week, every other term.
We are able to change our reading book whenever we have finished reading it. We note down the page numbers we have read and ask an adult from home to sign the relevant part in our reading diaries. Miss Robinson will collect our reading diaries on a Monday morning to check they have been signed. The school expectation is for reading diaries to be signed on at least 3 separate occasions a week.
We are given Maths homework every Tuesday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday to be marked. Miss Robinson will also send our English homework out on a Thursday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.
Spellings for each week are in the children's planners. Each week the children should practise at home 4 times, there is space for this in the planner. However, if spellings are completed in another manner (iPads, notebooks etc.) please indicate how many times they have done this and ensure that you sign the spelling page in the planner. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday.
PE days are Wednesday and Friday. It is also very important that all belongings are clearly named. If children are wearing earrings, ensure that they are able to remove them for PE or provide tape for them to be covered up to meet health and safety recommendations. Long hair should be tied up for PE and tights should be replaced with socks for PE lessons.
It is important to bring a water bottle to school every day, filled with fresh water. In addition, children can bring a healthy snack for break time. These snacks should meet the agreed list: fruit, vegetables, cheese or yoghurt.
