 Welcome to Robins Class! I hope you had a fantastic summer break and that you have enjoyed your first week back. 

My email address is k.sandells@welford.pdet.org.uk

Please do contact me if you need to and I will respond as quickly as possible.

General routines

Children should come into school through the main entrance in the morning by themselves with all their belongings.   They are dismissed from the classroom at the end of the day and leave through the main entrance. I will accompany them if you need to catch me. If they cannot find whoever is collecting them they should return come back into school and tell an adult. I would be grateful if you could make sure your child is aware of what they are to do at the end of the school day, especially if they are going to after school club, being collected by someone different or walking home on their own or with siblings. 

Book Bags and Home/School communication

Book bags in Key Stage 2 are not checked every day by school adults – please encourage your child to hand in letters/return slips etc. directly to us.  Blue home/school books should be used for routine communication between home and school and your child should bring their book to us in the morning if there is a message for us to see.  If I have not replied, the chances are that I have not seen your message! If urgent please ring the office or email me. 


Robins children are encouraged to take responsibility for changing their own reading books and recording their new book in their home/school book. Your child should be recording when they read in their home school book. Robins children should be reading at home 3-5 times a week, the more the better! 

Times tables/Maths homework

Times tables tests will be on a Monday. 


This term we have PE on a Wednesday and Friday. Please send your child to school dressed in their PE kit.  PE kit is a royal blue T-shirt with plain black or navy bottoms. Your child should have jogging bottoms/a long sleeved top available for outdoor PE. Outdoor trainers are needed in a plain colour – please don’t send your child in plimsolls.



Please ensure your child has a named water bottle in school. Regularly drinking water is proven to aid concentration and a lot of headaches in children are thought to be directly linked to dehydration. 


Please can you make sure your child has a waterproof coat in school every day. We do go outside to play even when it is raining.
