Welcome to Robins
Welcome to Robins Class!
In Robins there are four adults who work with the children. Mrs Ciara Dumpleton is Head of
School and also teaches the class one day a week. Ms Hee Yun Chung is the class teacher and
Mrs Claire Davies a nursery nurse. Miss Ellie King works as a SEND teaching assistant. Our
Early Years Team firmly believes that children learn through ‘play’. Our aim is to provide
children with a safe and stimulating environment that enables them to maximise their
learning. In Robins children are allowed to make errors, decisions and choices. Based on
these principles we help the children to become autonomous learners. We have the same 3
rules throughout the school which makes it easy for us to follow them. They are: Keep safe,
Use your Values and Be the best that you can be. We learn about and practice these rules
In Robins we think differently. We believe that we can get better at something through practising and perseverance, so when we come across a challenge we become more determined to succeed and wanting to overcome knock-backs. As the Early Year Team we set high expectations for children and encourage them to be resilient and not give up. Children see a challenge as a sign of learning.
The P.E. sessions take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children come to school in their P.E. kit on those days. All children are expected to wear t-shirt, black tracksuit and hooded jacket. They also wear comfortable trainers for the lessons. During P.E lessons children learn a range of different movements and also learn how to use various P.E. equipment e.g. balls, hoops, rackets, beanbags and cones. All the activities are fun base so that children can learn new skills through pleasure. Children are also allowed to use outdoor facilities such as climbing equipment, bikes, scooters and open field throughout their free choosing time. All these activities enable children to keep their bodies healthy.
