Our theme for Summer Term is:
We have lots of fun, curriculum linked activities planned for this term based around the Seaside theme.
Summer Term - ‘Explorers at the Seaside’
Termly Topic –This term our topic is ‘Explorers at the Seaside’. This topic contains lots of opportunities for your child to learn about the seaside. Please see medium-term planning overview below for some examples of the learning that will be taking place. Further details of trips and visitors will be sent home later in the term. This terms home task is to create something that could be found on the beach, in the sea or at the seaside out of recycled materials, as we are a Platinum Eco school, for our topic wall display. You can be as creative as you wish 😊. We look forward to seeing your creations – Happy Creating.
Spring Term – Class 2
Welcome back to the Spring Term. I hope that you all had a relaxing Christmas with your children. Having read most of the children's diaries it appears that lots of you have had a fun and action packed break. I would like to thank parents for their generosity and appreciated all the Christmas gifts.
As you can see from the photos, the children participated in numerous indoor and outdoor activities last term. I would like to give thanks to guest speakers and parents who have helped to enhance our learning, linking cross curricular activities with four core purposes.
Core purposes to support children to be:
- ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives
- enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work
- ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world
- healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
I appreciate parents who are supporting children at home. One of the main priorities in class 2 is reading at home.
Talking of reading...
Each child has a reading book. To support staff to know what books they have read you can just write the book title, add comments about how your child did or just squiggle your signature to confirm that daily reading is going on. We really appreciate your partnership here as it will accelerate your child's reading skill hugely if they share a book with you every day. Diolch yn fawr for your continued support.
For those parents who couldn’t attend parent’s evenings the main priorities that we would like you to focus on are:
Reading – you to them, them to you- anything and everything! Read every day, little and often
Forming letters, starting from the correct starting points.
Learning Read Write Inc. sounds which will support your child’s ability to blend words. (use Fred Talk and Fingers to support blending and spelling- see RWI leaflet in class pack)1. Counting on and back from different starting points.
