Mrs O'Grady

Welcome to Class RO. 

Mrs O'Grady, Mrs Donohue, Mrs Marshall and Mrs Da Silva.


You should have now received your EExAT login code. If you haven't please make sure you have filled in the google sheet on the early years curriculum page on the website. See the guide in the documents below to find out how to create your own login. 

EExAT is our assessment system and is a fantastic way of us finding out some of the things that the children do at home. Here are some ideas of things you could upload to show us. 

-a new achievement - this could be swimming or as simple as putting on a coat independently. 

-being kind to someone. 

-helping someone. 

-taking turns in a game.

-counting the stairs or sorting Autumn objects. 

Please try to share an observation with us over the holidays. If you are unsure send it anyway! 

I will be creating the children's learning journeys over half term and will share them with you the first week back. This is a great way for you to see what the children have been up to each half term. 

This week the children have been amazing! They have learnt their first Talk for Writing story, The Little Red Hen. We have been so impressed with how quickly they have learnt the story. Have a look at the video to see how well they have done! 

This week we have really been working on our fine motor skills and have had lots of fun with our funky fingers activites. We have been threading macaroni onto spaghetti and threading beads onto pipe cleaners to practise our counting skills too! 

Fine motor skills are really important, especially at this time of the year, and we will keep on working on them in our classroom. Strong fingers help us to zip up coats, pick up things and also help us to hold pencils, brushes and scissors.

Here are some ideas you can try at home.  


  • practice zipping up a coat. 
  • threading a lace with some pasta. 
  • using play dough and pushing, squeezing and twisting it. 
  • going on the monkey bars at the park. 
  • peeling an orange with one hand. 
  • using tweezers to move small objects from one bowl to another. 
  • peeling stickers off. 




As we get to know the children we will start to teach them about our 4bs. These rules help us to be the best learners we can be. 

When the children stay for their lunch, it is useful if you have talked to them about what they might eat.

Have a look at the menu in the files.

We should be on week 1 when they stay for lunch next Wednesday.
