We hope that you will help your child on their journey through this year by helping them with all tasks that they bring home. I hope you find the following information useful:
Learning logs- will be sent home every Friday. Please help your child with their homework tasks and return learning logs to school by the following Tuesday.
Reading Activities- children will bring home a Read Write Inc sheet as they learn each speed sound. Please help them say each letter's sound, and write over the letters. You can build the letter sheets into a bank for your child to practice at home.
-library books will be sent home every Friday. Please share them with your child every night and return them to school the following Friday.
-please make every effort to share your child's Oxford Reading Tree books and words, returning their book to school on their one to one reading day (which is written on the front of their reading folder).

We have worked so hard this half term. We have made new friends and enjoyed learning how to use all of our classroom areas to develop our skills and knowledge. We have learnt how special we are and why so many people love us (including our teachers and friends in school). Little Turtle visits us every week to remind us how important it is to love and care for each other, and to always be safe, ready and respectful.
Here are some photos of some of the activities we have enjoyed.
We are very excited about our new topic! We have already started sharing ideas about why squirrels hide their nuts and other autumnal things we want to find out about.
Remember to dress up warmly in your school uniform (with extra layers), and wear wellies or boots for our trip tomorrow. It is going to be such a fun day, looking for signs of autumn, and hopefully spotting some autumn animals.
What a wonderful trip we had to Parc Cwm Derren. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful country. We had such fun using all of our senses to explore and find signs of autumn.
We still have so much to learn about dragons and castles that we are carrying on with this exciting topic for the next half term. We will be learning about castles in Wales and what it might have been like to live and work in a castle long ago.
Please keep supporting your child with their homework tasks and reading books, making sure that all books (including library books) are returned to school on the correct day (as above).

We love the story of The Selfish Giant and we thought about how he felt at different times during the story, and when we might feel these different emotions. We shared our thoughts with Little Turtle.
We have developed so many skills through this topic, and we know so much about dragons and castles. What will our topic be next term?
Well, next term our exciting new topic will be...
We have so many exciting things planned!
If any parents or grandparents keep minibeasts e.g. African snails, stick insects, spiders etc that they would like to show to the children, I would be most grateful.
Also, if any of the children have small, model insects that they would be happy to leave in class for this term to use in our enhanced areas, that would be lovely too. Diolch
