Welcome back after a lovely Easter break!
This term our topic will be Animal extravaganza. We will be exploring,'The wonderful world of mini-beasts.' We have lots of exciting activities planned!
Outdoor learning week
During this week we will be having lots of outdoor learning experiences. We will be enjoying our school grounds and encouraging the children to be instrumental in the planning of how and what they would like to learn. Please enjoy the photos at your leisure.
Have a lovely summer holiday!
Many thanks for all our gifts and cards but most of all"Thank you" for giving us the pleasure of teaching your children this past year. Wishing you all good health and happiness for the coming years.
This week we are learning about Australia. We have read some wonderful books including Possum Magic, The Diary of a Wombat and our all time favourite Koala Lou.
Today we are saying goodbye to Ava as she is going to a new school. We planned our day together, we made party hats,played musical chairs, played hide and seek and sang songs in our outdoor classroom.
A selection of beautiful work.
The children placed flat stones on the grass and left them for 2 weeks. The questions they were asked:
What has happened to the grass?
What animals can you find?
Stretch and Pull

What's the time Mr Wolf?🐺🦊🐺
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 Day🎉
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.
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.
Welcome back, I hope you all had a safe and happy Christmas. Unfortunately we will not be back in school, but working on line. (Online learning will be starting Wednesday January 6th)
Year One-year 6 will be using google classrooms. All passwords were given out before Christmas. Please let me know if you have any difficulties and I will do my best to help. I will try and make the learning easy and straightforward for you to follow. Please email me if you have any concerns.
This term our topic will be ‘Life journeys’ we will be studying mother and babies, life cycles and baby animals.
Well done Dosbarth Hazel for producing some amazing work. Here is a small selection we thought you would like to see.
On this page you will find key information about our curriculum and our classroom. We will also be sharing some of our learning with you so please look at this page regularly to see what is new. Diolch!

Every morning there will be a member of staff at the door to welcome your child into school and answer any quick questions you may have.
As we are unable to have parents inside the building at the moment, please email me with any queries you may have - firstname.lastname@example.org
Reading books will be sent home once a week on an allocated day for each child.
Reading at home is extremely beneficial for your child and we ask that you read as much as possible.
Please return book and record book the next day and make comments wherever possible.
Book bags can be purchased for 50p from school.
P.E. for our class is on a Friday. No kit is necessary at this time as we are not able to get changed in school at the moment. The children are welcome to wear joggers/ leggings and trainers to school on Friday.
