Summer Term 2021
How on earth is it our last term already? It feels like only yesterday we were starting our journey together and we are now nearing the end of your time in Reception. At least we are back in school for my favourite term - the Summer Term.
I love the summer term, as hopefully the weather will be better so we can spend lots of time outdoors and you all start to amaze me with how grown up and clever you have become. Plus I love our topic this term - life on the farm and the fabulous stories by Julia Donaldson based on the What the Ladybird Heard series.
I hope you enjoy your last term in Reception and we make lots more wonderful memories along the way.
Let’s have lots of fun and learning this term

Spring Term 2021
I am very sad that we are not starting this term back in class together but it is important that we stay safe and well. While we are working at home we will carry on with RWI, Read Write Inc to learn our sounds and will continue to work on our understanding of numbers to 10 and beyond as well as starting a new topic all about cold places and looking at life in the polar regions.
I know it’s not going to be easy but I’m sure with the support of your family we will make the best of it. We will be using Seesaw as our main platform for providing you with our online learning and for you to send back the completed tasks and activities for me to see. It is a great tool for the younger children in the school and I’m sure you’ll soon get used to it.
If you need to contact me for anything at all please either do so by email email@example.com or via the Seesaw app or our private FB page.
Hopefully we will all be back in class soon and some sort of normality will resume. Until then please do your best but remember safety and happiness must always come first.
Mrs James 😊
Autumn Term 2020
Welcome to Dosbarth Ash. It’s been a long time coming but we are finally here and raring to go. It’s 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 to start the autumn term is ‘What matters to me’ which will help them feel safe and secure and allow them to settle as they talk about things important to them which will probably be mainly themselves and their families. Later in the term we will be looking at books by the author Julia Donaldson. We will start with the Gruffalo and look at the Gruffalo’s Child and maybe 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.
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!
Today was an exciting day which started when all the fruits and snacks disappeared from the snack trolley. In its’ place was the Mouse from the Gruffalo along with a letter explaining what had happened. The children went on a Gruffalo Hunt to find the missing animals and their snacks and were rewarded with some hot chocolate for all their hard work.
