Robin's Class Page

Welcome to Robins Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. We are very pleased to welcome you to our class page and we are looking forward to working with you and being part of your child's Year One learning journey. 


The adults in Robins this year are Mrs Solomons (Teacher Monday/Tuesday), Mrs Young (Teacher Wednesday/Thursday/Friday) Miss Howley (learning support assistant) and Mrs Edwards (1:1 learning support assistant).  We are always happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have and we love to hear about your child's celebrations and achievements outside of school. Quick messages can be handed over at drop off or pick up. Please email any other questions, messages or news to the office and I will respond via email or a telephone call.


Please find below a photograph learning journey that shows some of the exciting activities we have been doing. We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures and that they give you the chance to talk to your child about their learning and share in their experiences at school.

DT - Moving pictures

In our DT lessons this half term we made moving pictures using the Funnybones characters. We had to use a lever (lollypop stick) and a hinge (split pins) in our designs. We were so pleased with our pictures. 

Walk to the post box

The children have been learning about writing and sending letters recently so we all wrote a letter to our Mummies and Daddies. We learnt how to write our addresses on our envelopes, put a stamp on them and then we took a walk to the local post box to send them. We are sure all the Mummies and Daddies loved receiving their letters.

Forest School


The children in Robins class have had lots of fun in forest school over the last few weeks. They have explored a range of tools and learnt to use them safely. They have also being using their gross motor skills  to swing, climb and balance. To finish off the sessions  children had fun roasting marshmallows using a fire pit.

Numbots Day

Self Portraits

In Art we have been looking at the work of Vincent Van Gogh, particularly looking at the portraits he painted. We have been learning to sketch our features to create our own self portraits. We experimented with colouring mixing and brush sizes to paint our portraits and add detail.

We are very proud of the pictures we produced, take a look.
