Thank you for returning reading books on Monday and supporting us by reading with your child over the weekend and during the week. If you can read little and often that works better than one long session.
Please bear with us as we spend a little time getting familiar with your child's abilities and adjust the books accordingly. If you have any concerns about reading levels later in term then please speak to us.
Remember to write a comment in the reading record book to let us know how your child got on with their reading at home.
We have a number of items of clothing which are unlabelled and the children are unable to tell us if they belong to them. They have been taken to lost property. It is important that you label everything, (including tights), as we have no way of knowing who they belong to.
Whilst many of the children are independent in dressing if your child isn't then please practise with them at home as we are spending some of our PE time at the moment helping children to change.
Welcome to Class 1 for the new school year!
The children have settled well into Class 1 and are beginning to learn the new routines. Welcome to Winston who is new to Class 1 and thank you to all of the other children for helping Winston to find his way around. You have been good friends!
Our theme this term is 'My Little World'. We have started this week by painting self portraits, drawing our families and revising sentence patterns in Welsh linked to our names and feelings. We have also had two PE lessons, completed some partnership working tasks and discussed New Beginnings. In Literacy we have talked about the summer holidays and written our news, and started to read our school reading books. On Friday everybody visited the school library to choose a new library book. In Maths we have started our baseline assessments for Year 1, revised 2D shapes and completed some sorting activities.
What a busy week - we all deserve a lie in this weekend!
Please remember to label everything that your child brings to school with their names - coats, clothing, PE kit, drinks bottles, lunch boxes and snack tubs. Please also send a coat in every day so that your child stays warm and dry when we go outdoors.
We will send a letter home next week about reading books and Show and Tell.
