Daisy  Class – Reception

 

Hello and welcome to Reception at Maesglas Primary School!

We hope you are all well. We are delighted to be working with your child in their first year of school! Here is some helpful information about our Reception class. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office on 01633 816047.

 Thank you for your support J

Meet the team!

 

Mrs Hall - Class Teacher

Mrs Fidler - Teaching Assistant

 

In the first term we will focus on settling your child into school life by encouraging them to explore their learning environment, develop friendships and build confidence. Our topic is ‘Marvellous Me.’ We will be learning about ourselves, our bodies and discussing our families and interests.

 

In Maths we will be focusing on numbers within 10 to begin and then to 20 and beyond. In the first few weeks, we will be doing lots of counting and number recognition. We will also practise writing numbers, size ordering and many different areas of maths.

 

In Literacy we will begin by focusing on our speaking and listening skills. We will be practising correct pencil grip and control. Children are learning how to write their names and their letters correctly. We will be reading lots of different stories such as Goldilocks as well as children learning their first sounds.

 

P.E Lessons are every Monday. Please can the children come into school wearing their P.E kit every Monday – as they will be keeping it on all day. The children will not need to bring their P.E kit into school, in a bag, until further notice – many thanks. A quick reminder that jewellery should not be worn on P.E days for safety reasons. Thank you.

 

 

 

Outside play - The children will have access to outside play for many of their sessions so it is important that they bring coats every day. Please put their names in coats (also in cardigans, jumpers etc) so there are no mix ups. Thanks!

 

Home Learning

We will assign weekly home learning for your child. In line with Welsh Government advice, we will be sending this online and we will give you and your child all the information on how to access this.  (Letters with logins have already been sent – if needed again please let us know.)

We are aiming to create a 'Blended Learning Approach'. This will be to practise work completed in class.  We hope you find these activities fun to complete together.

Homework will be assigned on a Friday and should be completed by Wednesday.

 

Reading books

When your child is ready for a reading book, we will send them home with two books on a Monday for the rest of the week.  Please bring these books back on the Friday, ready for them to reissued the following week.

 

Lunch

Children can order a school packed lunch (sandwiches, fruit, drink and dessert) and you will be able to pay for this online via Parent Pay – details to follow.  Free school meals will be ordered with your child on a daily basis. 

 

Water Bottles and Snack

Please can the children bring a named water bottle to school – containing water only (as we are a Healthy School).  If children would like to bring a piece of fruit for break time, please can they keep it in a box or labelled container or bag - thank you.

 

 

If you haven’t already done so, could you also please bring back your child’s information sheets so we have your contact details.  These were emailed to you, however, if you need a paper copy of the sheets, please let us know.  If your child has any allergies, dietary requirements or medical needs please let us know also.

 

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.

 

Many thanks,

 

Daisy Class staff

Croeso i Dosbarth Daisy! 
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.

Mrs R Stokes

Miss J Vaughan

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

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.
