Welcome to Reception!

Mrs Tidy and I are very excited to start the new term and to welcome Mr Rees, as a teacher every morning, to our team.

Our topic this term is Owl Babies and then Mr Gumpy’s outing. To introduce this we have already had an exciting visit from Brian and Julie at Periswood, who brought three different types of owl, a falcon and a hawk. Most of the children were able to hold Meg the Barn Owl too!

We also had a visit to Penllegaer woods to search for woodland treasures and we will be investigating these this week (17th September).

Cooking will be on a Monday afternoon with Miss Morris.

Snack money is £5 every half term. Please send this in in a named envelope.

Mucky Mondays will start this Monday (17th) and will happen every week so please ensure your child has wellies and waterproofs if appropriate.

Please read with your child as often as possible at home.  A school reading book will be sent out during the week of the 24th September.

P.E. is on a Tuesday afternoon and will be Gymnastics and Dance this term. We will let you know when the children need to bring outdoor shoes. For this term, please could your child come dressed in their gym kits every Tuesday.

Please do not hesitate to come and see Mrs Tidy, Mr Rees or myself if you have any worries or concerns and we can arrange a suitable time for a meeting.  However, we will be holding Parent’s evenings during the week of the 22nd October where we can talk about how your child has settled and their progress.

Best wishes,

Mrs Griffiths, Mr Rees and Mrs Tidy
