Welcome to Our Class!
Miss Holloway is our teacher and we are lucky to be supported in our learning by Miss Williams and Mrs Froom.
We like to learn through exploring things and we especially love messy play. We may come home messy some days, but that's because we have been having lots of fun.
Our School day is slightly shorter 9:00am - 2:45pm. When there are any changes we will inform you.
A few helpful reminders!
Thank you for your continued support :)

As you know our topic for this term is Lightbulb and will be based around light and dark. We will also be learning about day time and night time routines. Here are some activities you can do with your child to support their learning:
1. Listen to bedtime stories together.
2. Look out of the window and count the stars at night.
3. Brush your teeth together.
4. Try different types of breakfast foods such as cereal or egg on toast.
5. Listen to and sing rhymes such as 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star'
You can listen to these songs on the BBC School Radio Website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06kbsbz
We have enjoyed exploring light this week. We had lots of fun in the UV room, everything glowed in the dark.
We also enjoyed learning about Saint Dwynwens day - We made cards for our special person who 'lights' up our life.
What a busy year we had!! Our Spring term topic - 'scrumptious' was a great success with all the pupils learning about healthy and unhealthy foods as well as everyone having a go at trying new foods. During the Summer term our topic was 'beach'. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed visiting Langland bay.
Autumn term 2019
Our topic this term is 'Heroes: people who help us'.
The fire service came to school today. We all had a chance to sit in the fire engine and even held the hose when it was squirting water across the yard. What a lot of fun we had!!!
