EYFS - Robins

Here are digital copies of the home learning pack sent home and a list of useful websites to help with home learning

Welcome to EYFS - Robins!

Hi, welcome to Robin class!

 

In our class we love learning both inside and outside the classroom and always have lots of different things to do such as our home corner, art area, builders yard, reading corner and maths corner. We learn maths, literacy and phonics (following letters and sounds) in fun ways every day.

 

We change our reading books every Tuesday and Friday.  We expect children to read daily at home and have a large number of exciting books to choose from in our class book corner and through our reading scheme.

 

Our PE day is Friday.

 

As well as having literacy, maths and phonics lessons we also have a new topic every half term. Here are some fun and interesting websites to help with the children’s learning in maths and phonics:

As well as the learning packs you will have been given I shall be putting up some extra activities for your children to complete if they want. These will change every few days.

Reading and Writing - Ask an adult to read the Easter Bunny Story below. Now see if you can write 2 or 3 sentences to tell me what happens in the story. Remember to use full stops, finger spaces and write as much as you can on your own without your adults help.

 

Art - In the story the Easter Bunny has to paint eggs - decorate your own Easter egg (it can be a real egg or a picture)! Which colours will you use? Can you mix colours to make a new colour? You can also decorate an Easter egg on Purple mash in the painting area. 

 

Phonics - This week focus on the sounds - ng, oa, ar. See if you can find and write some words with these sounds. You can also go on phonics play or phonics bloom (link above) and play some games using these sounds. Don't forget you can also watch Geraldine Giraffe on Youtube for each sound. Have fun!
