Welcome to EYFS - Robins!
Welcome to 2021 and another strange year at Larkrise & in Robins class.
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 here to support your child in anyway I can during these strange times.
I am so glad that I have been able to get back to school and be in the classroom with you all. I am looking forward to pushing forward and continuing our fantastic learning.
Remember 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.
Thank you all for taking home learning in your stride, I can see that all the children have thrived.
All of our 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 am always available for you to message on DoJo!

I have found a really helpful website which contains some fab information with regards to lots of different activities.
I have added fine motor and hand activities which should benefit you all, if you want to look at others available you may find specific ones suitable for you at home.
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.
Some suggested websites for you to try:

Here are some fun and interesting websites to help with the children’s learning for the topics they cover each half term:
Where’s the Bear?:
We learn all about different bears, where they live and what they look like. We make pictures of bears and read lots of different stories about bears such as goldilocks and we’re going on a bear hunt.

Time to celebrate:
We learn all about different celebrations including who celebrates them and how they are celebrated. We will learn about Christmas and sing Christmas songs.
People who help us:
This topic looks at lots of different job roles of people who help us in the community.
In this topic we will be looking at a wide range of books written by Julia Donaldson, focusing on different styles of writing and looking at rhyming words and retelling the story.
We will be learning about different minibeasts and going on hunts for minibeasts. We will also be growing plants and looking at what they need to grow.
