Welcome back everybody! It's great to have you all back in school this term, we have really missed you.
Our school topic for the Autumn Term is "What Matters To Me" and our emphasis in Upper Key Stage 2 is "Our World Matters." We will be focusing on the environment and the challenges facing our planet. Pupils will learn about issues such as climate change, pollution, deforestation and the conservation of endangered animals. We will be learning how WE can make a difference, and how we can lessen our impact on the environment. We value the pupils' thoughts and ideas, and they are actively involved when planning lessons and activities. They take responsibility for making choices about what, and how they learn and explore.
Extra Useful Info:
P.E. - Tuesday.
Pupils are not currently able to bring P.E. kit into school, but we encourage them to wear appropriate sports kit to school on a Thursday. Our lessons will be outside when the weather permits, so please ensure your child is wearing trainers and joggers/leggings.
Pupils are encouraged to take reading books home daily to read to a parent or guardian. Regular reading improves vocabulary and language skills, helps to improve concentration and also teaches children about the world around them. Please take 5 mins to listen to your child read whenever you can. It really will make a difference

Dear parents and pupils,
I hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. This is an unusual start to the term, where we are all working from home and not able to be together in the classroom. Lots of you have already emailed me to say how much you're missing being in school and seeing and playing with your friends. Hopefully it won't be too long before Llwyncrwn is yet again filled with children's laughter and it is safe for us to be back learning with our friends. In the meantime, the most important thing for us is to remain safe and healthy.
Teachers have been busy setting Numeracy, Literacy and topic tasks for you to do on Google Classroom. Please make sure that you have joined your correct Maths, English and topic group in order for you to see what work has been set. There are daily Maths and English tasks and additional topic tasks for you to complete / research. Don't worry if you don't complete every task, but try to complete at least part of the English and Maths tasks each day. It will help you keep on top of things until we get back to school. Keeping up with your reading is really important too, and there are a lot of free reading books that you can download online. Of course there's always those times tables to learn if you find yourself with some spare time on your hands!!!!!!
I am missing you all, and look forward to seeing you back at Llwyncrwn when it is safe to do so. Keep communicating with me on Google Classroom or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help at all, or just want to tell me your latest news while we are all working from home.
Take care, lots of love Miss Davies xxx
