Welcome to Early Years at Richmond Primary School.

New Starters for 2021-2022

Please see the Parents section on the website for some more information about Early Years. We will be getting in touch with all the feeder settings this half term to find out all about your children. We will send out information about class teachers, settling in sessions, induction for parents and general transition information as soon as we possibly can. We look forward to meeting you and your children soon.

Journey Day

We had so much fun bringing our bikes and scooters into school! We went on a journey around the school grounds and also all the way around Richmond Park.

Remote Learning



All planning, resources and videos will be uploaded onto our Learn site: http://ey.richmondprimaryschool.learning.schooljotter2.com/ 


You should already have your child's login details but if you have any problems please email early years directly.

When you login it should hopefully take you directly to our page, but if not click on 'Learn' then 'EY', you can then access each area of learning.

You can also upload any photos on the homepage that you would like to share with your teacher.

 

We had a great time during International Maths Day on 15th March.

We explored 2d and 3D shapes, weighed objects to see if we could balance the scales, investigated how much sand or water containers held and measured how far we could throw quoits. It was so much fun!

 

What are we learning about?

Our projects for Summer One are called Big Wide World and Splash.

Here is our Learning Letter so you can find out all about some of the exciting things we will be getting up to together!

We have been so impressed with how the children have been learning during our phonics sessions!

We have sent out individual log-in details for the following websites to practise reading at home:

You have also been given a Reading Record Diary for you to record when you read at home with your child. This should be kept in their book bag and not at home. The children will earn reading rewards in school for reading or practising phonics three or more times per week at home.

Please read the attached letters for more information. If you have any questions, please talk to your child's teacher.
