A big welcome back to another exciting new term in Robin class! 


 With the sunny weather on its way, we will be engaging in lots of outdoor learning down in EYFS and having lots of outdoor fun! Our first focus story will be ‘The Very Hungry caterpillar’, and so we will start off the new term by rearing our own caterpillars into butterflies! In our new science-based topic, we will think about how we can help to look after our environment both in school and out in the wider world.  We will think about looking after our animals, plants and habitats. 


Also this term, we will be focusing on preparing the children for their transition into Year One. We will be encouraging independence towards both learning activities and self-organisation wherever possible! Please help and encourage your child in developing these skills at home – independence is key! ☺ 


We will continue to learn new sounds and practice blending with Fred the Frog in our daily phonics lessons. Please ensure that you continue to regularly read at home with your child. Here are a few top tips:

  • Talk about the book and ask questions before, during and after reading. This help your children to understand what they are reading. 

  • Encourage your child to segment and blend when needed.

  • Encourage fluency through practicing reading repeated phrases, tricky and high frequency words.

  • Praise effort in the first instance, not ability, then praise success! ☺


Please don’t hesitate to contact me on class dojo if you ever have any questions, or if there are any concerns you wish to discuss.


Kind Regards


Mrs Jury
