Welcome to Mrs Griffith and Mrs Pawan'

 Reception class

Croeso i Ddosbarth Derbyn


We cannot believe the 6 weeks holiday has ended and Autumn term has arrived. We hope everyone has enjoyed their summer break and are ready for a busy, exciting and fun year of learning and exploring. We have been so impressed with how well the children have settled and how keen they are to learn and share their knowledge and ideas.

To start the year off, our topic will be:

Why do squirrels hide their nuts?


Trips and visitis:

We are currently booking some exciting trips for the term. We'll keep you updated with dates. Watch this space!

 - Margam Park - Autumnal visit & activities - TBC



Just a few reminders to help you at the beginning of the year:

- PE is on Wednesday. Please provide your child with a suitable kit to keep in school and make sure all items are labelled. Girls - No tights on PE day or jewellery.

- Forest school will be used regularly, if not weekly. Could you please send in a pair of labelled wellies, to keep in school.

- If you would like to send your child in with a drink, water bottles will be kept in a safe place for your child to access whenever they need, throughout the day.

- Book bags will be sent home on a Friday and returned back to school by Tuesday.

- Our school uses the new Squid system to make it easier for you to pay for school dinners online.
