EYFS - Robins

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:
