Spring Term 2
The Reception Class have loved exploring our new topic for Wales ‘Ar Y Fferm’. We have been busy talking about Welsh Farming and exploring the role of the farmer. We’ve looked what grows on the farm and at the animals that live there.
We have explored the Welsh Language names for the animals and have been learning the song “Scrwb yn y twb”. Throughout the term we will be planting our own seeds just like a farmer and will be bringing them home. We look forward to bringing home some of the creative work we will be creating at the end of the term.
Spring Term 1
We are excited to return to school after the Christmas Holidays to our new topic 'Toys, Toys, Toys'. On the 10th of January, the children were invited to bring in to school their favourite toy. On this day the children had the opportunity during Show and Tell to talk about their toy. The children discussed how the toys worked and what they were made of. They also had the opportunity to play with their friends toys.
During this term Reception will be looking at old and new toys, robots, outdoor toys and many more. We will this term, begin to practise changing into our P.E kits for our P.E lessons. A text will be sent out reminding all parents to send in the childrens P.E kits. Please feel free to leave P.E kits with us on Mondays for children to take home on the Friday.
We we have also received the reading books and activities from the Welsh Government Scheme 'Pori Drwy Stori'. The reading books (a Welsh and English language book) will be taken home by the children in turns and kept for a week only please.
We we look forward to exploring all different toys this term including a trip to the park. We will then begin our next term with a trip to tie both topics together. Details of which will be sent out in letter form.
Please continue to send in the children's reading books daily.
Thank you very much
