Welcome to Daisy Class - Year One!
Tymor y Hydref - Autumn 2019

Happy New Year and welcome back for another exciting year in Maesglas Primary School.

We are pleased to be given the opportunity to be part of their learning this year. 

We will continue to provide you with information about how you can support your child at home and please feel free to come and see us if you have any questions. 

Meet the team!

In Maths we will be counting to 20 and beyond, learning, addition and subtraction , we will also be looking at shapes, telling the time and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.. It would be very helpful if you could help your child practise their maths at home. You can also find maths games and activities on www.topmarks.co.uk to play with your child.

In Literacy we will be doing lots of different types of writing during the year linked to our new topic ‘Infinity and Beyond’. We will be writing stories, letters, facts and much more! You can help develop this further at home by encouraging your child to write shopping lists, birthday cards and messages all of which they will enjoy!!  We will also be working really hard on the presentation of our work.

P.E Lessons are on Friday mornings. Please can you make sure that all of the school clothes have their name in. Just a quick reminder that jewellery should not be worn in school for safety reasons!

Outside play - The children will have access to outside play for most of their sessions so it is important that they bring coats every day. Please put their names in their coats so there are no mix ups.   


Reading is still so important for the children’s development with their language, imagination and writing. The focus this year will be to develop their understanding of what they read and to look at a variety of different texts. This will be through Guided Reading sessions and individual reading. Please purchase a book bag and we will then provide your child with a yellow reading record. Children will have 2 books per week and these will be changed on a Monday. A list of key words will also be sent home to learn, please tick these off when they know the word.

Water Bottles

We try to encourage the children to drink plenty during the school day and although we do provide some drinking cups it leads to a greater independence and confidence if the children can take control of their own water. Please can the children bring a named water bottle to school.

Thank you for taking the time to read this information.  We look forward to working with you, to create a happy and fun environment where your child will continue to develop and grow. Any questions then just pop in and see us.
