Welcome Back

Autumn Term 2020

Well we have had a lovely start to the new term. We were very lucky to be reunited as a class at the end of the summer term and settle back into the new routines of a very unusual school life.


We give a warm welcome to our new friends who have joined our class. They have all settled really well and our class is now busy and full energy and enthusiasm to learn.


We are basing our learning on the topic

What Matters To Me


The children have embraced the work and we have some lovely work in books and some excellent craft work ready to be displayed in our classroom. 

Look out for some pictures in the near future of the activities that we have got planned.


We are trying to make school as 'normal' as possible in these very unusual times, sticking to routines but above all ensuring that the children stay safe. They are excellent at following the rules and never need reminding about distance and sanitising. Mrs Challinor and I are very proud of them all!


Use the home school books as much as you need to contact us but you can also use email and I will reply as soon as I can.


We are all looking forward to a healthy and happy term and so far the children are showing us that they are willing and ready to learn.

Watch this space for pictures of our activities.

With best wishes 

Mrs Swain & Mrs Challinor



I am very excited to be saying


To all my lovely children.


It's been a long time coming and I cant wait to be reunited with you all.

See you in the morning.


Outdoor Learning Day

What a fab photo of Harley-Joe and his brother enjoying the outdoors today, it looks like they had lots of fun. Thank you for sending the photo and taking part in exploring and enjoying being outdoors today.

This is a lovely photo of Mason happily exploring the outdoors today. We are very lucky to live in a valley surrounded by beautiful mountains that let us experience the wonders of nature on our doorsteps. Thank you to Mason and his mam for taking part in the special activity today.

Thank you to Benjamin and his mam for sending me some lovely pictures of their day today, you clearly enjoyed exploring the wildlife around your home and gardening. Thank you both for your enthusiasm when learning.

Here are some lovely pictures of Thomas enjoying being outdoors today. He really has been exploring nature. Good boy Thomas and thank you Mrs Longley for doing such lovely things with Thomas.



Half Term Holiday Is Almost Here


Thank you all so much for the video that you sent us last week. It was fantastic and even though we don't need reminding, it showed us how wonderful and special you all are!!



Thank you again for everything you have done over the past 8 weeks. Your help and support is greatly appreciated every day.


Have a great week and don't forget to close your home school on Friday afternoon and enjoy chilling with your lovely children. You all deserve a holiday so make sure to have a break and have fun!!


Hopefully we'll all be back together soon but in the meantime please take care and stay safe.

With best wishes from us all in the Speech & Language Class

This is the nicest thing ever, watch it and I bet you'll cry (happy tears of course).
Thank you again to all the parents and children for making it, you are all amazing!!!

Home Learning and Staying Safe

Summer Term 2020

I know it is a very difficult time for everyone but I want to say that I am so proud of all my children and very appreciative of all the hard work that you as parents are putting into teaching and helping your child learn at home.


It's really lovely to have so much contact with you be it emails, videos, photographs or post. It would be so much nicer to be in school but for the time being we will have to do our best and continue working hard together to ensure the children thrive as best they can. 


As we didn't finish our mini topic on the Titanic maybe you could help your child do some simple research and look at some of the resources on Youtube and Twinkl. We have looked at some and the children really enjoyed learning the facts about the ship through videos and powerpoints. I always put "for children" after every search which will ensure the materials are child friendly and easy for them to understand and enjoy.


Stay in touch, stay safe and stay happy. I found a lovely quote last week which said

"Let your smile change the world


don't let the world change your smile"


There will be an end to this and we will get back to school eventually but until then we have to make the most of the situation. Sending you all my very best wishes in these uncertain times.smileyheartwink



Our Happy Class September 2109

Our Pretty Daffodils

If you take a look back at our photos you will see the fun that we had planting these daffodils in the autumn term. We put the pots in the peace garden and were very happy last week to see how much they had grown. We decided that they could be an early Mother's Day present heartsmiley

As we are talking about Transport and Journeys we decided to go on a journey of our own and travel on the bus to Pontypridd. We had a lovely time walking through the park and looking at the changes that had taken place since our last visit in the autumn term. We enjoyed looking at many interesting things in the museum after walking over the famous bridge to get to it. Thomas had the idea of counting the steps so we were also busy doing maths while enjoying a day out. We then went to our favourite eating place and enjoyed a lovely lunch before spending the last part of our trip in Pontypridd library.  All in all we had a lovely day out and really enjoyed our bus ride.
We've reached the end of another fantastic term with these fabulous children and what a lovely way to reward them after all their hard work. It was a lovely treat for a us all and Mrs Challinor and I are, as ever, very proud of the lovely children that we work with everyday. Happy Christmas everyone! wink

Autumn Term 2016

Welcome back to a new term. All the children have settled well into routine again and are ready for some hard work in the weeks ahead. Our topic this term for the Infant children is All About Me so I'll be asking for you to send in some items or photographs from home of things that are special to your children so we can talk about them at school together.


The Junior children are doing a topic called Mighty Metals  and will be joining Mrs Heaven's class for some of these activities. We are all looking forward to another happy term together.  I'll be putting photographs on here regularly so you can see what your children are doing in school.


Miss Lewis is in school to work with the children on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will be sending an appointment out in the next few weeks for you to come in to school to discuss your child's educational and Speech & Language Therapy targets. We look forward to seeing you soon.


Please keep in touch through the Home/School book, it's a valuable resource for both us as a school and you as parents.


We joined Mrs Barnets class to learn about owls. We had a fantastic time.
