Early Years Staff

 

In Early Years your child's teachers are Mrs Wallis and Miss Dawe.

Our learning support assistants are Mrs Hutchinson and Mrs Painter.

 

 

We are trying to keep school as 'normal' as possible, however there are some changes we need to make you aware of;

 

Staggered drop off time

   RECEPTION between 8:45-9:00am and pick up time is 3pm.

   NURSERY between 9.00 - 9.15am and pick up 11.30am

 

Social distancing

Please line up along the wall and remain outside of the white box when dropping off and picking your child up in order to maintain social distancing

Face masks

Please can you wear a face covering when entering the school grounds.

 

Breakfast club

It is now being held in the classroom.  If you would like your child to attend please drop them off between 8:30-8:45am.

 

Hygiene

The children are encouraged to maintain good hygiene whilst in school and will be washing their hands on a regular basis.

 

Class Information

 

Book bags

Unfortunately we are unable to send home books each week at the moment.

 

Snack money

We ask parents for a contribution of £1.50 per week towards the cost of snack. The children have a healthy snack every day; fruit, yogurts, cheese and crackers, cereal and toast. The money also goes towards the cost of additional food for celebrations and parties.

 

 

Attendance

Set good attendance patterns from an early age starting in Nursery and continuing throughout primary school will  help your child later on in their life.

Keep safe online

Parent Communication

 

Twitter

Visit our twitter feed and see the amazing things we have been learning about.

 

Seesaw

We have been really pleased with the support from parents using our new SeeSaw App this term. We have been able to share photos of your child's work and show you how they are learning. The children have also gained valuable ICT skills too.

If you would like to receive updates about your child's learning you can download the free SeeSaw app on to your phone.

It is also a quick way to let you know about any upcoming events.

As well as using Google Classroom to complete tasks within school – they will create and assign homework tasks via Google Classroom too! Your child has their own username and password - they can access Google Classroom via the internet on any device. This video is basic introduction to the Student's View of Google Classroom.

                                Early Years Foundation Phase Curriculum

Autumn Term 2020 Long, Long, Ago....Dinosaurs

Spring Term 1   2021   Proud to be Welsh

Spring Term 2     2021        Tomorrow's World

 

 

We will be building our learning around the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The story will give us inspiration to investigate the different types of bridges and explore which materials will make the strongest bridge.

Our role play will be an Inventors workshop where the children will be able to let their imaginations run wild. They will be designing and building their own bridges using a variety of different materials.

 

In our Puppet theatre the children will be listening to a variety of traditional tales. They will use puppets to retell the story to their peers.

 

The children will be learning about Pancake day and tasting some delicious pancakes. They will be taking part in competitions ready for our Eisteddfod at celebration of St David's Day.

World Book Day the children can bring their favourite book to school
