A WARM WELCOME TO ROBIN CLASS!

Robin Class

We are very excited about welcoming our new children this term and to welcoming back our 'old' Robins! We look forward to helping the children settle quickly into Robin Class and to working with all our families this year. If you have any questions or concerns please do always speak to a member of the Nursery Team.  

Below are photos of Robin Class enjoying their learning last year, and some of the activities and events you can look forward to taking part in! 

The staff in the Early Years Foundation Stage work as a team to ensure that everyone can...

"be the best that they can be!"

What are we learning about in Robin Class?

 

Our topic for this half term is 'My World'.  We will be learning about our new learning environment, making new friends and talking about our home and family.  After half term we will be learning about Celebrations.  Teaching and learning will be linked  to all seven areas of the curriculum; focusing on particular rhymes and stories which will be shared weekly (see links below).  

 

Through our topics we will also be using every opportunity to develop spiritual, moral, social, and cultural values- encouraging children to: explore beliefs and experiences; show respect for faiths, feelings and values; learn about themselves, others and the surrounding world; use imagination and creativity as well as  reflect.  

Please refer to the medium term planning below for more details.

(Please note that these plans are 'a work in progress' which will be adapted as necessary in order to incorporate interests, specific events and the weather!) 

 

Each week the children will learn a rhyme linked to our topic. Please encourage them to practice singing the rhyme with you at home.
