All children in Reception will read on a Friday. Children will come home with Read Write Inc sounds to practice and learn at home each week. 


 PE Day 


PE day is on Friday. Please ensure children wear a suitable P.E. kit to school on Friday and make sure all jewellery is removed. Children will be taking part in physical activities indoors and outdoors so appropriate footwear is needed. 



We have a whole school reward scheme, the OSCARs. Every week one child from each class is chosen to receive an OSCAR in our special assembly on Friday. Their certificate is displayed in the junior hall for everybody to see how well they've done until the following week when they can take their certificate home.




Summer Term

Our Summer term topic is 'It moves!'. We will be learning about the benefits and impact that different minibeasts have on the world around us and different types of transport and the inpact that these methods of transport have on the environment. Our focus AoLEs are science and technology and mathematics and numeracy.


Spring Term

This term our topic will be called Land of our Fathers. We will be learning about Wales and studying our culture, history and heritage. Our focus AOLEs are Expressive Arts and Health and Well-being. 


Autumn Term

This term our topic is called "Great expeditions". It's a humanities-based topic and will look at journeys to different parts of the world, starting with the local area of Mountain Ash and moving further afield to look at adventures to the jungle, North Pole, under the sea, to space etc.



Learning through play

We encourage all our children to be independent learners so sometimes your child may come home with a messy uniform. This shows that they have had a busy day learning lots of new skills.
