Reception

Croeso, welcome, and diolch, thank-you, for allowing us: Miss Gethin, Mrs Hughes, Mrs Newton-Willams and Mrs Jones to take part in your child's learning journey. Now let me tell you a little something about our reception day. To begin with each little one will be welcomed warmly into our reception family and from there we enjoy a fun wellbeing 'catch-up' to start our day. Once we know each little one is feeling safe and happy we start our learning day which is full of activities that have been created progressively and sensitively, with pupil input, inside and outside our classroom. Once our fun day of learning has come to an end we finish with a little 'check out' chat just to make sure all is well with each of our little ones.

Here's to the future! With the implementation of the new curriculum dawning, we are looking forward to teaching exciting new topics which we will share with you on Google Classroom and as always as practitioners we are looking forward to the joy of taking your little one along the journey from a pre-reader to a reader, from a mark maker to a writer and a pre-problem solver to a problem solver!

A final thought! Learning is always "better together" and so our door is always open for you so please feel free to approach us at any time.
