We are an Early Years and Key Stage 1 class at Exeter House and have 10 children in our class: Ruth is our class teacher and Kim is our Higher Level Teaching Assistant. Ness and Toby 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. The personal and social aspects of the curriculum are central to our learning and we have plenty of opportunities to learn through practical play activities. Through play and exploration, both independently and alongside an adult, we 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, sensory and soft play 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.


We enjoy whole group sessions, as well as working in smaller groups and individually within the class. During the school week we participate in a variety of activities including sensory stories, numeracy, phonics, Attention Wiltshire (bucket), Jabadao, cookery and art. We also enjoy our PE sessions with Zac and Forest School sessions with Adam.

We have a busy year planned, where each term Lower School will have a different topic to focus our learning around. Our learning activities are recorded and shared with parents on the Evidence for Learning app. In Robins we like our learning to be active, messy and lots of fun!
