General Class Information
Our context for learning overviews
We teach through half term or termly contexts for learning and will keep you updated on what exciting experiences we have got planned each week. Please see below for an overview of our context for learning which will give you an idea of what exciting experiences the children may have during the context.
Weekly learning experiences
Please check this section regularly to see what learning experiences are being offered to the children each week.
Our new context for learning this half term will be "Who lives in a rock pool?"
W/C Monday 14th May 2018
Our focus story this week in Nursery will be "Tedi Twt Ar Lan Y Mor"
The children will start their week in Nursery with their library sessions on Monday. On Tuesday we will be having a beach themed day in our outdoor area. The children will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of beach games, enjoy building sand castle creations, enjoy water play activities including fishing and under the sea small world and will also have the chance to buy their own ice creams from the ice cream van that will be visiting us.
Throughout the week the children will explore money in our role play ice cream parlour and will learn to play beach boules with their friends. We will continue to learn lots of Welsh vocabulary as well as the sentence pattern “Ga I.....”
**** On Tuesday, please remember to bring £1 for your child’s ice cream. If possible please apply sun cream to your child’s skin and bring a hat. *****
A polite request
Please could we politely ask that parents try to avoid coming in to the Nursery cloakroom area at the start of the session. It can be overwhelming for the children as it fills up very quickly. Please feel rest assured that we will help your child with their coat and bag if they need help to take it off and put it on their peg.
Please could we politely request that if you need us to give out party invitations to the children, that you place them in plain envelopes with the child's name marked clearly on the front.

Ways to help at home
We practise name writing and number recognition each day in Nursery.
If you practise writing your child's name with them at home, please remember to use lower case letters rather than capital letters after the initial letter of their name.
Lots of our parents have also told us that they are introducing their children to letters. In school we teach the children letter sounds through our Phonics scheme rather than letter names in the alphabet.
We will be providing plenty of opportunities to develop your child's scissor skills. Many young children find using a pair of scissors challenging. If you are able to provide opportunities for your child to used scissors at home, it will allow your child to gain confidence with their snipping and cutting skills.
Photos will be added regularly to this section of the website.
Please check back regularly to see what the children have been up to.
