Welcome to Early Years! Croeso!
Staff in Reception:
Miss Glendon (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)
Mrs Smith (Friday)
Mrs Harris (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday PM)
Mrs Leahy (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday PM)
We are all so excited to welcome you back to school, particularly after such a strange and unprecedented year. Miss Glendon and Mrs Smith and all of the other staff are looking forward to seeing you and listening to some of your stories of what you have been up to. We have got a fun-filled year, exciting times ahead, with lots already planned for "Open Your Eyes Week".
Our topic this term is An Ugly, Lovely Town and the focus of this topic is Swansea.
We have some activities up our sleeves but we can't wait to hear your suggestions too in our weekly EPIC planning sessions.
At the moment we will not be providing fruit as a school. Children are welcome to bring in a healthy fruit snack from home, in a labelled bag so that they can bring any packaging or leftover fruit home. Children can bring a full water bottle at the start of every day. These will be sent home daily.
Children will take part in a whole range of lessons every Friday in our amazing nature reserve in the school grounds. If children could please bring appropriate clothing on Fridays that would be very much appreciated. If you wish to leave your child's wellies on their peg, please make sure they are clearly labelled. Children will also need a waterproof coat and in the colder months we would advise you to put in some extra layers.
We will aim to be out every Friday, rain or shine!
PE will be timetabled for every Thursday. Children will need to wear a PE kit on a Thursday – shorts/tracksuit bottoms/leggings and a t-shirt. Sometimes we will have P.E outside so it would be advisable for children to wear trainers too.
Individual reading days will be confirmed at the start of the term and it is very important that children remember to bring their books in on their allocated day but if your child finishes their book in-between their allocated days then please send it in and we will change it for you as soon as we can. We are continuing with our online reading scheme called 'Reading Eggs'. This is an exciting and valuable tool to help raise children's confidence in reading. Once set up children will be allocated an individual log in and they can start using it at home.
We would like to encourage you to label all jumpers, cardigans, clothes and bags as this helps us get all belongings back to the right children. We also advise you to label lunch box containers and water bottles.
Website, twitter & Dojo:

Miss Glendon, Mrs Smith and the Reception staff.
