Welcome to Llwyncrwn Primary School

Dosbarth Hazel- Mrs Barnett

Our Outdoor Learning 

 

We enjoyed our sensory exploration of our school grounds.

Easter arrangementsπŸ£πŸ‡πŸ£

Unfortunately due to the current restrictions we will not be able to hold our traditional Easter Bonnet Parades in the school this year. We have decided instead that this year all Easter activities will take place in school, including any hats/headbands the children may make. This is to reduce the amount of things being brought into school from home as recommended by the Local Authority.

Friday 19th March is Red Nose DayπŸŽ‰

This year the theme is "Share a Smile" 😊

In an attempt to keep everyone safe we have decided not to let the children wear bought "red noses" this year to reduce the risk of them sharing or mixing them up. You can "paint" their noses if you wish. 

We are encouraging the children to wear brightly coloured clothes(the brighter the better) to symbolise rainbows 🌈and to share their favourite jokes with the class to help'Share a Smile'. We are also asking for a donation of 50p if possible to support Comic Relief. 

 

A big "Thank you " to Llantrisant Howdens for their generous donation.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Welcome back!

It was lovely to see happy, smiley children returning to school this week. When the children were asked to describe how they felt about being back, they used words such as awesome, happy, cool and excited.

To celebrate Wellbeing Week we made kindness medals to give to our friends. We celebrated with an award ceremony.

This is our classroom, where we are safe and happy.

We celebrated our hard work by choosing our favourite piece of work.

We have been learning about how and why things grow. Today we have been planting daffodils. Thank you very much to Woodland Walk garden centre for donating our pots and bulbs.

β˜€οΈSummer Term 2020β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈ

Dear Dosbarth Hazel and Parents 

Normally Ms Di Mauro and I would be welcoming you back to school for your final term in Rc/yr1, looking forward to a busy and fun Summer Term. Sadly we are unable to this and we miss you all terribly.

As far as learning from home goes, activities will be set weekly on the class page.  You can select the activities you feel most confident to complete but please

don't feel to complete them all. 

More than anything, I'd like you to spend time as a family talking about your daily activities, exploring nature on your walks and reading to each other. I'd like you to work on addition and subtraction  and practise money recognition and value. and to complete this terms challenge of learning your  number bonds off by heart. ❀️❀️

I have set up a private group called ' Dosbarth Hazel' on Facebook- please request to join if you haven't already.  I will set some fun activities and Family challenges on this page too. 

Please let's try to keep in touch as much as possible on the Facebook page, or through email. My email address is mrsbarnett@llwyncrwn.co.uk

Hope to see you all before too long. 

Mrs Barnett and Ms Di Mauro πŸ˜πŸ˜

Reading and sharing stories can help your child get to know sounds, words, and help develop literacy skills while sparking their imagination and fostering a love for books. To help with this there are lots of online videos to help.one to check out is Picture book Author events online on Facebook have Authors reading their own books and illustrations giving tips in drawing characters.

 

 Just a little update on the time capsule. I would really appreciate if you could collect anything that might be useful for our time capsule. This may include rainbow pictures, cards made for key workers, newspaper articles etc .Please can you keep them in a little folder for me until we go back to school. I will be listing some written challenges for the children to do as part of their language work on the class page.

Thank you.

Monday July 13th

 

I would just like to say how much I have enjoyed teaching your children this year. It has definitely  been a year of my teaching career I will never forget. The pictures of your children certainly kept me going during the lockdown period. 

 

Normally on the last week of term we would have an end of year party. We would still like to have some fun with the children who are in this last week. If your child wants to wear fancy dress and bring in a plate of party food we will play some games and have some fun as we say goodbye to their time in Reception. Please remember we will be outside playing so make sure they are able to run and play in whatever they are wearing. Here’s to enjoying the last week of a very unusual year in Reception/ year. It has certainly been an emotional one. 

 

 

 

During the last week of term we would normally be winding down. If you would like to continue working with your children I have put a list of activities for revision.

Please read as much as you can.

Revise all the sounds given in the home learning pack.

Write a diary.

Practise spelling high frequency words.

Make invitations and organise play dates.

Continue to write fact files on minibeast and learn about their habitat.

Revise addition, subtraction and mathematical language sentences.

Revise o'clock, half past and quarter past.

Revise coin recognition and coin value.

Revise 3D shapes and 3D shape properties.

BUT MOST OF ALL ENJOY MAKING UP FOR LOST TIME WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

 

 

 

The role of the parent and carer is to support children to find out who they are and what they like to do. With this comes greater independence and responsibility, with children learning that they can still ask for help. We have put together some activities  to support healthy social and emotional
development through creativity, art and play. Here are some creative activities that you can use with your child, aged 3 to 7 years.

Monday

Kim’s Game
Choose 10 items. Talk about them then cover them with a cloth. How
many can you remember?

Tuesday

Make a bird feeder.

Follow the instructions and record which birds come to visit.

Wednesday

Spot the difference

Can you find all the differences?

Thursday

Limbo Challenge
Using 2 chairs and a broom, create a limbo challenge with your family.
How low can you go? Who do you think will be the winner?

Friday

Leaf Treasure Hunt.

How many of these leaves can you find?

Saturday

Lego Ramp
Use cardboard or paper to create a ramp for a Lego car. How far can you
make it fly?

Sunday Quiz time!

Guess the animal sound.

Top Tips:
When you feel wobbly, making a list or writing things down can help you feel steady again.
 

Monday July 6th.

This week  our topic will be moving away from minibeasts and we will be concentrating on 'Me and my feelings' 'The colour monster'  is a lovely story that encourages children to open up about their  feelings. 

The story map for the ' Colour monster' Please can you draw each stage of the colour monsters story in the box  of the grid. You may like  to add a caption to say what is happening eg.'The monster is red, he felt angry.( You may just like to draw three parts of the story and write captions.)

Facebook- Monday June 29th

Good morning,

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Tomorrow Llwyncrwn will be opening their gates to welcome back the children after a long few months. If you have chosen to keep your child at home or send them back to school, I am sure you have all made the right decision based on what is best for you and your family. No decisions made at this time is a wrong decision.

I am really looking forward to seeing the children and I will do my best to make their return to school as fun as I can. Unfortunately I will be missing my Llwyncrwn partner Ms DI Mauro as, due to government guidelines she is unable to return to school quite yet. Nevertheless she will be manning the Facebook page, so that if you have any enquiries she will be doing her best to support and reassure you over the next three weeks.

I just wanted to say a big well done to all the parents who have been working hard at home to nurture their children’s learning. I know you have been working hard to stimulate your children and I have been so impressed by your determination and innovating ideas to keep your children minds healthy and happy.

During the weeks ahead I Hope team Dosbarth Hazel will continue to strengthen. This period of time will go down in history. To record this time Ms Mauro and I have been working on a scrap book and time capsule. We are also working on another project which is still in the planning stage. I will still be putting activities on my school page for you to enjoy.
