Welcome to Our Class!
In our class, we like to learn in lots of different ways and have fun!
Some of our favourite learning activities are going shopping, cooking, singing and we love messy play! Most of all, we enjoy learning together!
Miss Davies is our teacher and we are so lucky to be supported in our learning by Mrs Lewis, Miss Thomas, Ms. Cooper and Miss Griffiths.
A few helpful reminders!
Thank you for your continued support :)

Hwb has a range of fun and interactive activities for your child to access at home. You can also check your child's emails on Hwb. To do this, you first need to log on to your child's Hwb account. Select Office 365 and then click on Outlook for emails. It would be great to receive emails which contain pictures of activities that you have been doing together.
We also really enjoy using Just 2 Easy in our class. To access this, log onto Hwb. Click on Just 2 Easy or it might be called J2e on mobile devices. Once you've done that then click on Jit. We love to paint and draw on Jit!
