Robins – Reception

Welcome to Robins Class


Hello and welcome to the Robins class page. My name is Miss Eady and I am more than excited to teach Reception for the remainder of this academic year. I am beginning my wonderful journey here at Coates Primary, beginning my ECT (Early Career Teacher). I have completed my Early years teacher training as well as general primary and I look forward to putting this understanding to good use. In addition to previous experience working as an Early years supply teacher.


This page is for Robins class to update you on what the children have been learning, locating information, posting homework and uploading useful websites or pages for you and your children to explore. Please visit regularly for updates.  

I look forward to the year ahead with Robins Class.

Many thanks

Miss Eady

Oral Health


In Reception class we have been learning about the importance of looking after our teeth! Parents you can get involved with this too in a number of ways. In Cambridgeshire alone 22% of children ages 5, have tooth decay. At Coates we want to empower the children to know how to look after their teeth. We have been brushing model teeth, spotting tooth decay, looking at the amount of sugar in foods and how we brush our teeth properly. 

Parents and Carers: below are some links that can support your child with teeth brushing at home:

Police Visit


As part of our topic learning this half term, we have been learning about people who help us and the jobs they have. We have been learning about lots of different types of jobs such as: dentists, teachers, opticians, farmers, hairdressers, vets, doctor/nurse, firefighters, police officers, builders and swimming instructions to name just a few! 

We had the pleasure of 2 police officers coming to pay us a visit last Wednesday afternoon and the children got to ask some questions, talk the the police officers, try out some uniform and equipment and have a go in the back of the police van. The children absolutely loved it! They were very enthused about the whole experience and got to put some learning in to practise.

First Day Back- Friday 3rd September 


I am looking forward to seeing everyone on Friday. Just a reminder that your child will be collected from the Office by one of the EYFS at the start time on your letter. Once the settling in session has been completed, please collect your child from the Office at the pick up time stated.

I cannot wait to see and meet everyone on Friday. The classroom is ready to go! Myself and Mrs Norris are ready to go! :) 

See you Friday! :)

Useful Links and information 


Please see links attached below which have been recommended by the Early Years Team. The Cbeebies link has lots of useful ideas to try at home with your child, information and advice for parents. A handy tool! 


Another useful link is the Cbeebies Alphablocks and Numberblocks shows. They are lots of fabulous clips on BBC iplayer which are used in school to help visualise and build numbers. Please do share and take a look at home with your child. 


Finally is the 'Activity Passport' for children which has been released by the Government with a list of recommended activities and learning opportunities for children to experience at each age and stage. Please do try these at home.

Class Character


In Robins class our class character is Winnie the Pooh. He is going to come home with each child over the school year. He has an adventure book which comes along with him when he is sent home with your child. Please take Winnie on some adventures: it could be as simple as a bed time story, tea at the table or attending a swimming lesson! The book is to document the adventures he has been up to with your child and to encourage talk, sharing ideas, and writing. 

You can take photos, write captions and eventually the children can record their ideas into the book also.

Thank you 

Mrs Lilley 


All about Me Boxes


Don't forget to bring in your Summer/All about me boxes into school next week as we would love to see all of the things that are important to you at home. Photos of your family and friends are welcome so we can display these with pride in our classroom. 

Looking forward to seeing you all next week, 

Mrs Lilley
