Robins – Reception

frownWelcome to Robins Classfrown


Hello and welcome to the Robins class page. My name is Mrs Lilley and I am really excited about teaching Reception this year and looking forward to getting the new school year under way.  I am currently in my 7th year of teaching and have taught in Year 1 and I have taught Year 2 for six years. I am the EYFS leader, Maths leader and Science leader in school this year.


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 cannot wait to meet the Robins class in September and begin teaching some exciting topics this year.

Curriculum Information



Please see attached slides and information about the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. 

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. 


Challenge Cards


At School we have been exploring how to encourage independence in Robins class. We have set up some challenge cards for the children to use. The children complete some learning jobs around the classroom, then they are encouraged to tick off the learning job on their challenge card once they have completed each challenge. The children have fully embraced these and are now trying some more learning jobs in all areas of the EYFS curriculum. Well done Robins!

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

Mrs Lilley
