To be the best we can be, living to learn, learning to live with God at our side.



Happy New Year!


We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are ready and excited for the new term in Early Years. This half term's topic is 'Delicious' and we will be exploring different types of foods and cultures. We will be taking a look at our teeth and the different types of teeth animals have and discover why that is.

We will be exploring the Chinese New Year through art, dance, music and of course food. We will be busy in our Chinese restaurant and take away, serving traditional foods, writing menus and using money to pay for our dinner!


This half term's Pie Corbett story is 'The little red hen' - we will be learning to retell the story using the story map, following and writing our own instructions on how to make bread - yummy!


We will continue to work on our numbers, counting, shapes, letter writing, outdoor learning and much more.


Please keep a close eye on Seesaw for homework and photos of our wonderful learning in school. All codes were given out/posted before the end of the school term and please keep the code somewhere safe. 


A gentle reminder that snack should be a healthy option Mon-Thurs and treats on a Friday. Please could all grapes be sliced lengthways and no products containing nuts e.g. nutella, peanuts etc.


We're looking forward to a fun filled and busy half term,


The Early years staff



Welcome to our Early Years Class Page.


Here you will find lots of information and examples of the lovely things your children will be doing this year.

Please make sure that you have downloaded the SeeSaw APP - please see a staff member if you are having trouble. Through SeeSaw we will be setting homework, online learning and giving you a snap shot of your children's learning while in school.


This term we are exploring ourselves. We will be looking at our bodies, homes, families and healthy eating. We will also be developing our story telling skills through our daily Talk for writing. We will be learning the story of the 3 Bears and funny bones. We will be great story tellers.


In maths we will be exploring shape and pattern and developing our number skills in the indoor and outdoor areas.


Please bring a warm coat when the weather gets chilly and please make sure that you label ALL your child's belongings.


We are growing closer to God in our topics of Myself, Welcome and Birthdays. We will be learning our school prayers and making the sign of the cross in Welsh. We will be great friends to God and each other.


please remember that it is a healthy snack option from Monday to Thursday. fruit, yogurt, breadsticks, cheese, cucumber - please can pots be have names and all grapes cut length ways for safety.


Friday is treat day - choose your favourite snack!


please label water bottles as the children are able to self access them during the day.


We warmly welcome you all to Reception and look forward to your continued support.


Mrs Davies and Mrs Thomas
