Dear Parents and Carers,


Happy New Year to you all!


We have had a great week in Reception and are glad to have the children back in school.  


We have a few changes of routine for this half term that we would like to inform you of. This half term we will be doing our Forest School and would like the children to come into school in their own clothes on one day per week


For Mr Wynne’s class this will be a Tuesday and for Mrs Jones’ class this will be a Friday.


Please could the children wear old, warm clothes that they will be able to get messy in. We will also need shoes that can easily be taken on and off by the children themselves as they will be changing into their wellies.


Please make sure wellies are in school in a named bag.


Friday is also PE day for Mrs Jones’ class so please could they wear clothes that are easy for them to put on themselves - tracksuits are ideal.


We are also changing our Reading Day to a Wednesday so it is important that the children bring their reading records and books into school in their book bags on this day so that we can change their books. Please remember that there should be no fobs on the children’s folders.


Finally, just a reminder that we do go outside every day whatever the weather so it is so important that the children wear warm clothes. The girls may wear grey trousers if they want to and layers are always good! Please avoid laces on shoes if possible.


Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions,

Many Thanks,

The Reception Team.

Today the children are bringing home some resources provided by the Book Trust Wales. Their website has lots of information about the resources and ideas to carry them out.

Welcome to Pori Drwy Stori. Pori Drwy Stori is an exciting bilingual programme for Nursery and Reception aged children in Wales, aimed at supporting their literacy, numeracy, speaking and listening skills in the Foundation Phase.


The first activity is to complete the weather watch calendar for each day of the half term holiday. We will collect the completed calendars on the first day back. The calendars are in Welsh and English so just flip them over to find the English version.


The second activity will begin after half term and we will be having a rhyme challenge. This is explained in the booklet. Each week we will cover a different rhyme and at the end the children will receive their certificate.


We hope you enjoy the weather watch and we hope that the weather behaves! 

Have fun and we hope that the children enjoy a well earned rest.

Friday 24th September


The children are bringing home a Seesaw Home learning code today, different from the family codes that went out last week, 

It means that the children will be able to take photographs and videos at home and share them with their teacher.
They will also have some letter tiles with the sounds we've been practising in school. We'd love it if you could ask them to find something beginning with each letter at home and take some photographs on Seesaw to share in class.

Have fun!
