Thinking and learning today to help us all tomorrow.

Reception Suns

Croeso i Dosbarth Haul

The children in Sun class have had a lovely first few weeks in Reception. They have all settled in beautifully and have enjoyed making new friends. They have been getting used to our new class routines, playing and working together.




Children have begun daily 'speedy sounds' sessions, learning initial sounds of the alphabet. So far children have learnt the sounds 'm, a, s, d, t.' We will be moving onto the sounds 'i, n, p, g and o' next.

Children have been enjoying the stories 'Can't You Sleep Little Bear? and Peace at Last.'  We have used these stories to help us talk about bedtime routines such as brushing teeth and having a bath.

Children have also enjoyed creating their very own Dream Jars. Children have recorded their dreams using Ipads and will be placing them into their jars, using a QR code.

Children have enjoyed participating in a variety of speaking and listening activities as well as enjoying familiar stories and rhymes.




Children have been learning to recognise, read and count numbers up to 10. Children have enjoyed creating their own numberline to display in the class.

Children have been talking about different times of the day and night such as bedtime and lunchtime. They have enjoyed playing the game 'What's the time Mr Wolf' to help them learn these times.


Self Help Skills:

The children have settled into their new environment quickly and are able to use the toilets and sinks independently. Children are able to respond to gentle reminders from staff about how they use the toilet appropriately, such as flushing after use, washing and drying hands. It would be much appreciated if this could be reinforced at home.

As the weather is becoming colder, children will be coming in with coats. Could you please help your child to learn how to put on their coat independently and to attempt the buttons or zips themselves before asking for help. Thank you.


Wow Slips!

Please help us celebrate your child's achievements by completing and returning your child's Wow slip.
