Welcome to Llwyncrwn Primary School

Class 1 Mrs N James

Welcome to Reception!

Croeso i derbyn!

 

 

​​​​​​​Home learning ideas

As we have no idea how long we are going to be off school I have decided to upload some photographs which may help you help your child at home.

I have uploaded all the sounds we have learnt so far this year in a slideshow which you can play to your child while asking them what sound each letter makes and ask them to name a word which starts with that sound. The sentence at the bottom of each card helps the children remember how to form them correctly when writing the letters down.

 

In the last few days before the school closed I set up lots of the activities we regularly use in class to help the children learn without actually writing in books. Children learn so much through games and fun activities so don’t feel it’s all about them writing things down. All the children are at different stages in their learning so you will need to try things to see where your child is at.

I have taken photographs of language activities, maths activities and activities we use to develop their fine motor skills.  If you need any advice or support to help your child please don’t hesitate to contact me by email at mrsjames@llwyncrwn.co.uk and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Also if you want to send me any photos of things your child has done at home please send them to me by email too. I would love to see them.

 

Please stay safe and enjoy the time with your children. It is something we will never forget and I look forward to seeing you and the children as soon as it is safe to do so.

Take care

Mrs James 💕

Spring Term 2020 - Transport topic

Our topic this term is all about Transport.  We will look at the various types of transport and how different vehicles are used for different journeys.  We will learn about different parts of vehicles and the people who drive, fly or sail them. We will take a visit to a local garage to see them at work and will have visits from different emergency services and the vehicles they use.  Our home task will be to make a boat or raft and these will be tested in school for floating, speed and if they can hold ‘passengers’.  We will be looking at a book called Gerry’s Story which is set in Bute Park, Cardiff and will be visiting this park as part of our trip to Cardiff and combining it with a trip on a boat.

 

During this term we will be continuing with our phonics work and the children will be able to amaze you with their progress with their reading when they bring their reading books home for the first time. They will be starting to write simple sentences independently and writing for different purposes.  We will also continue working on recognising and forming our numbers and starting simple addition sums.

 

The children were set a challenge to create a bridge from 4 paper cups and 4 lollipop sticks which would hold 20 teddies. In pairs the children designed their bridges, finding out, by trial and error, how far apart to place the bases, what shapes to make them and then how to position the teddies so they all fit on. Lots of teddies were falling off or platforms falling down but by working together all pairs managed to solve the problem talking about how the teddies took up less room on the bridge if they turned them sideways.

Autumn Term 2019

 

Another year, another class and time to get to know your little ones as we become a 'little family' for the next year. You will see huge changes in your child over the next year as we learn new things and get them ready for their future in Llwyncrwn.

 

Our topic for the autumn term is based on books by the author Julia Donaldson. We will start with the Gruffalo and the Gruffalo’s Child and if we have time read and do work on The Stickman. We will also be learning about our senses and how they help us make sense of the world around us.  Flashcards and phonic sounds will be a huge part of our learning as well as simple number work and forming and recognising numbers to 10.  We will hold a welcome to Reception meeting for parents after a few weeks settling in where we will give you ideas of how you can help us help your children.

 

And then, before we know it, it will be Christmas and the end of their first term in Reception .......but before that there's lots to keep us busy.  Enjoy watching their journey and see how they grow!

The children wrote letters to Santa and then walked down the Post Office to send them off to him. On their return to school they had a look around the school grounds to find the tree their class is named after - Dosbarth Ash.  The tree was bare of leaves today but they will revisit it during the coming year to notice all the changes.

Anti-bullying week 2019

Reception have been busy again talking about how words can hurt us and break us down. They thought of mean and nasty words which upset people and realised although we might not be not be able to see any hurt on the outside it causes hurt on the inside. They then thought of kind words to help heal the pain and put a smile back on someone’s face. Then they paid compliments to their friends before designing a ‘compliment bracelet’ with a secret message on the back that they can ask their parents to read to them when they get home to find out what their friend thinks of them 😍

Reception have been doing lots of ‘Funky Finger’ activities to develop the muscles in their hands and fingers to help with their pencil control. As a treat their challenge was to see how many honey Cheerios they could thread onto a pipe cleaner in 5 minutes to create an edible bracelet.  All those ‘Funky Finger’ activities certainly paid off as they completed their bracelets at top speed!

Summer Term 2019

Hard to believe it’s Summer Term already. Where has the time gone? Soon it will be time for your children to leave Reception and move on to Year 1 but before that we have one more topic to work through. Our main focus this term is the series of books ‘What the ladybird heard’ and is linked to work about on the farm.  We will be learning about the different animals found on a farm, where they live, what their young are called and what they give us. We’ll be using these books to help us look at different genres of writing and will be learning about money and time in maths as well as continuing to expand our number work too. 

 

Thursday 23rd May is Outdoor Classroom Day and we will be taking part in this event and doing all our learning outdoors that day. Pray for nice weather for us! After Whitsun we’ll also hold International Week where Reception will learn about Italy, have sports day, parents meetings and have our end of year trip. Lots of exciting events to finish our year in Reception. Don’t forget to check back regularly to see what we’ve been up to.

Spring Term 2019 - Transport topic

Our topic this term is all about Transport.  We will look at the various types of transport and how different vehicles are used for different journeys.  We will learn about different parts of vehicles and the people who drive, fly or sail them. We will take a visit to a local garage to see them at work and will have visits from different emergency services and the vehicles they use.  Our home task will be to make a boat or raft and these will be tested in school for floating, speed and if they can hold ‘passengers’.  We will be looking at a book called Gerry’s Story which is set in Bute Park, Cardiff and will be visiting this park as part of our trip to Cardiff and combining it with a trip on a boat.

 

During this term we will be continuing with our phonics work and the children will be able to amaze you with their progress with their reading when they bring their reading books home for the first time. They will be starting to write simple sentences independently and writing for different purposes.  We will also continue working on recognising and forming our numbers and starting simple addition sums.

 Over half term Reception class were set the challenge to create a boat or raft at home that would float, carry ‘passengers’ and take part in a race. The children had great fun testing their boats and the two fastest boats were presented with medals. There were some impressive entries this year!

As part of the month long topic ‘Tales from Wales’,Reception class went on a trip to Cardiff to spot some of the important buildings they have been learning about. First stop was Cardiff Bay where they walked across the barrage and played in the park, before taking the Princess Katharine boat up to Bute Park and then they walked over to Cardiff museum where they took part in a Seaside Safari workshop. Even the damp, miserable weather didn’t spoil their enthusiasm.
