Dosbarth Maple

 

Welcome to Maple Class!

 

Miss Hughes and Miss James are pleased to be your child’s teachers this year. Mrs Hardman will be supporting us in class.

 

Our Topics

This term our topic is ‘Myself’ and we will learn many new and exciting things. We will be focusing on our body and the five senses. We will also be looking at the seasons Autumn and Winter and how this effects what we wear.

 

In Welsh our focus language patterns will include greetings and feelings.

 

In Literacy we will be reading a collection of books linked to our topic ‘Myself’‘. We will practice recognising our sounds on a daily basis and develop our oral blending skills. Written work will include writing our name, lists and captions for pictures.

 

In Maths learning will include reciting numbers forwards and backwards, counting, number recognition and pattern.

 

Physical Development

PE sessions are on Tuesday. Children will need to come to school wearing a white t-shirt, black/navy shorts or joggers, a jacket and trainers. Please ensure that all clothing has your child’s name on it.

 

Reading

Reading is a gift for life. Please encourage your child to develop a love of reading through sharing and talking about books, comics and magazines that interest them. A new book will come home every Thursday in a named wallet and to be returned on a Monday. Please listen to your child read as often as possible.

 

Snack

Our school is part of the Healthy Schools Initiative. Please support our school and ensure that your child has a healthy snack every day for morning break e.g. fruit or veg. Children are provided with a free carton of milk. Also please provide a named bottle of water.

 

Uniform

Please ensure that all clothing has your child’s name on it.

 

End of day arrangements

Please inform the class teacher or Mrs Pearce (School Secretary) if you have made exceptional arrangements for the collection of your child at the end of the day.

We are looking forward to building positive relationships with yourself and your child so if you should have any questions please feel free to send a message via SEESAW or alternatively telephone the school.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Hughes
