What’s next…

This term our topic in Early Years is ‘My Amazing World’ and we will be learning lots of lovely things about our world. We will be taking a journey ‘Under the Sea’ and even travelling in a rocket into space! We are going to be learning more about woodland animals during our Forest School days and we are looking after our environment through learning about ‘single use plastic’, recycling and by keeping our indoor and outdoor classroom environments tidy.  We will also be getting ready for our Sports Day and doing lots of running and jumping practice and hopping and jumping through hoops in a race.  We know that we are special, all of the time! 

Remember parents and family members can check your ‘Dojo’ app to look at pictures of your child working hard, some of the exciting activities that we do and for messages and notifications.  Diolch!  Thank you!

We will continue to enrich the children’s learning through activities throughout all areas of learning, in the Foundation Phase Curriculum.

Language, Literacy and Communication Skills, Mathematical Development, Personal, Social Development, Well Being and Cultural Diversity, Physical Development, Creative Development, Welsh Language Development, Knowledge and Understanding of the World, Digital Competency.
