Class Information


Book bags

Please could book bags be sent into school on a Thursday and new books will be sent home on a Friday along with key words and any home activities.


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 e.g,  fruit, yogurts, cheese and crackers, cereal and toast. The money also goes towards the cost of additional food for celebrations and parties.



Please could Reception pupils come to school dressed in their P.E Kit every Friday. This could take place inside or outside so please make sure your child is wearing trainers.


Starting good attendance patterns from an early age in Nursery and continuing throughout Primary School will help your child later on in their life. 


Try your best to be an 'Attendance Hero'.


Spring Term 1 - 2022   


This half term our context for learning is 'Proud to be Welsh'. The pupils have decided through 'Pupil Voice' that they would like to learn about Welsh Castles, Welsh food, Daffodils and Welsh Dragons. 

We will also be learning about Winter, St Dwynwen's Day, Chinese New Year and Valentines Day. 


Our Role Play area for this half term will be a Castle.


Please see the Parent Overview for more information.

If you would like to receive updates about your child's learning you can download the free SeeSaw app on to your phone. If you need any help with this then please just ask a member of staff.


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



Please make sure you download the 'Schoop' app. Here you will receive all communication from the school such as newsletters, consent forms and important information from your class teacher.


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


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.

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.
