School dinners cost £2.30. There is a choice of a hot or cold meal each day.
We only allow healthy snack in school. Your child can bring cheese, yoghurt, fruit, veg or a cereal bar.
Please ensure all children have a coat every day. We love to make use of our outdoor environment. We would like to make the most of our outdoors for as long as possible, even when its cold, so coats will be great!
We get so busy in our classroom that we often need to take off our jumpers and cardigans. Please make sure names are in every item of uniform and remind your child to put their jumper or cardigan on their own peg when they take it off.
PE will take place on a Thursday afternoon. Please could you provide your child with shorts, a top and daps/trainers. Children will need to wear kit to school every Thursday please.
Our New Topic is....
This term we have chosen the story 'Tiddler'
Tiddler is a story telling fish who goes on an adventure.
It tells the story of a little plain fish who is repeatedly late to school when asked why he is late he tells the grandest of stories to his class. Tiddler tells his tales everyday but will anyone believe he his fantastical story when he has a real adventure in the big wide sea.
Below you can follow the story with this Youtube Link
In school we Pie Corbett our stories. This means we use actions to help us remember the wording of the story and the sequence.
After we are confident in acting out the story we...
- Get to know the character using Role on the wall
- Draw out a story map
- Box up the text
- Imitate (re-tell) or innovate the story (make changes)
Below you can sign all with Miss Williams...
As part of our DCF Fortnight (Digital week) - We have been choosing our favourite Pokemon characters and writing about them in Welsh.
As you can see below we have learnt how to ask and answer 'Beth Wyt ti'n hoffi?'
(What do you like?)
The children have tried very hard to use the shift key to make a capital letter, the space bar and a full stop.
We enjoyed our St David's Day celebrations by dressing up in traditional costume, sport kits and the red associated with Wales.
Everyone was congratulated on their Eisteddfod entries which were superb as always!
Best of all were the scrumptious welsh cakes, which we all shared together
Fab photos were taken - Please enjoy looking at them below...
As a whole school, we are also providing homework on Abacus Maths (Online).
Your child will have their own login and password which will be sent home in September.
Here are some useful guides to show what we expect from a Year 1 child
Your child may be working either below or above this level and we adapt this work to suit their needs.
By looking at these, you will know where to start when working with your child at home.
Try to do little achievable steps and then choose a new thing to learn.
In Year 1 we cover a variety of topics e.g: shape, money, measure, time, data handling, coding and number.
Here is a number overview of what we expect a Year 1 child to know by the end of the year. Once again your child may be working below or above this level and we differentiate the work for them to achieve to the best of their ability.
As a whole school approach, we are now encouraging all children to practise their number skills at home. This can be paper form such as Big Maths tests sent home or using Abacus and RMEasimaths on the computer/Ipad.
Each child has their own username and password for both Abacus and RMEasimaths.
These have been sent home at the start of the year and will now be sent out again this term
to ensure you have received them.
Please copy the following links into the internet browser and these will take you to the site pages you need.
For our first half term project we will be learning about monkeys. We will be visiting Bristol zoo to see what a monkey looks like, what they eat and how they act. We are also learning our new story 'Monkey See, Monkey Do!'
We did a mind map on 'What we already know about monkeys' and 'What we would like to find out'
We have been learning the story 'Monkey See, Monkey Do' - The children have enjoyed signing the story with their friends. Recently we have been painting monkeys and blocking the story into sections (Opening/beginning, problem and ending).
