Robins Class


We are a Reception/Year 1 class at Exeter House and have 12 children in our class: Ruth is our class teacher and Kim is our Higher Level Teaching Assistant. Louise, Ness, Sylvia, Julie and Molly are our  fantastic teaching assistants. Everybody works together to help us achieve our individual goals in all aspects of the school day.


As the youngest pupils in the school, settling happily into school life and learning all the new routines is a major focus in our class. Therefore the personal and social aspects of the curriculum are central to the children’s learning.

Also important are plenty of opportunities to learn through practical play activities. Through play and exploration, both independently and alongside an adult, children are learning a whole range of skills across all areas of the EYFS curriculum.

We are very lucky to have a spacious classroom with separate workroom, playroom and soft play sensory room. These facilities really enable us to plan and deliver to the children’s individual needs. As well as this we have our own secure playground with a variety of outdoor equipment and our own climbing area.

During the school week we participate in a variety of activities including literacy, numeracy, phonics, Attention Wiltshire (bucket), Jabadao, cookery, art, hydrotherapy sessions and jacuzzi. We will be able to enjoy our PE sessions with Zac and Forest School sessions with Bex. We enjoy whole group sessions, as well as working in smaller groups and individually within the class.

We have a busy year planned, where each term Lower School will have a different topic to focus our learning around. For regular updates check out our class blog!
