Welcome to EYFS - Robins!
Welcome back to a new year at Larkrise Primary.
We all know that life in school is very different at the moment but if you have any worries or concerns about things then I am always willing to answer any questions you have. I am also here to support your child in anyway I can during these strange times.
Please remember the best way to communicate with me directly is on Class Dojo! If you are not able to access Class Dojo please speak to myself and I will be sure to give you your unique login code.
Due to current situation we will not be able to have a 'Meet the Teacher' meeting all of the information you need will be on the PowerPoint below including the Reception curriculum, PE days, help you can give at home and the structure of EYFS. Please go through it and speak to me if you have any questions.
If you would like to challenge yourself outside of the classroom there are many fantastic opportunities on Purple Mash, a great online platform. Every child has a login which can be found in their reading diary.
I know we are going to have a brilliant year in Robin Class and I am really looking forward to getting to know your children and being part of the start of their learning journey throughout Larkrise. Remember to stay in touch and I am here for any questions you might have.
Your child has been issued a reading book, you need to make sure you use the reading diary to record the home reading as this is used to award ‘Reading Stars.’ Books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday. Please read the book more than once so that your child can build on their confidence with the story, remember to ask questions and encourage your child to talk about what they have read.
All of todays work is now found on DoJo class story so head across to DoJo to find your daily activities.
I have added a list of extra links below which you can access to add additional work to your day if you wish, these include live Joe Wicks PE (@9am) and Science (@11am).
Do not forget about MiniMash (PurpleMash) & Collins eBooks to add to extra learning too.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me.
I will continue to add new links once I have found some good ones.
Joe Wicks - PE
PE with Joe is back ❤️🙌🏽 Starting Monday the 11th January at 9am on my YouTube channel. I am committing to 3 live sessions per week: Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9am(UK time).
They will be 20 minutes long and designed for children. Please please share this with as many families as you can and let your schools know so they can notify the parents ASAP and we can get as many young children taking part.
This is so important for our children’s emotional and mental health 🙏🏼🌍 Lots of love Joe 😀
Maddie Moate - Science
Let's Go Live (our live family science show) will be returning to help with #homeschooling! We're aiming for 3 shows a week, Mon-Wed-Fri @ 11am.
