Miss Williams and Miss Hurley
Welcome back to school and welcome to the children who have joined the school this week. We hope that you have all had a fantastic time with your families over the summer and we are excited to get stuck into our first topic ‘God’s Most Wonderful Creation’ with you. We are looking forward to having lots of fun and taking part in lots of learning experiences with you.

Overview for parents
This term we will be exploring God’s Most Wonderful Creation. We will be learning all about ourselves – how we are made in God’s image to be unique and special. We will celebrate our similarities and differences and consider the importance of friendships. We will find out how people in our family, school and the local community help us and focus on how everyone is important within our communities.
We will be focusing on embedding the Curriculum for Wales 4 purposes in our topic by being ambitious, capable learners, enterprising, creative contributors, ethical, informed citizens and healthy, confident individuals.
PE will be on Thursday afternoons with Mr Smith. Please can the children come to school wearing PE kit – they won’t need to wear school uniform on Thursdays.
Forest School will be on Friday mornings. Please can the children come to school wearing school uniform, and bring their forest school clothes in a bag – labelled with their names. When the weather is wet, please include a change of socks
We will be using our Read, Write Inc programme to support Literacy, along with our Oxford Reading Tree home school reading books. We will also be running a library where the children will choose a book to take home.
The children will start to take home Oxford reading scheme books when they are ready to do so. They will also be given high frequency words to take home. These are vital to helping the children understand the books so we ask that you spend some time helping the children learn them. These will be given in sets of 4 as different characters. As they learn each characters words, they will be given a certificate to take home.
Below you can find each characters words.
Please can you spend 10 minutes daily supporting your child read. This could be using flashcards for sounds, high frequency words or reading books.
We would also be very grateful if you could make comments on their home learning account on seesaw.
Please see below for some documents about how to support your child's reading at home.
