The Pori Drwy Stori Rhyme Challenge

Over the last 5 weeks, we have been learning a rhyme a week. This has been so much fun and we have had lots of giggles with the tongue twister rhymes. You can help to continue learning these rhymes at home with your child with their rhyme book they have.

Pupil Voice - Spring Term 2020

Our topic for Spring Term 2020 is, ‘Our Wonderful World’. We read the story and stopped at the part where the aeroplane landed into the sea. The children worked together to problem solve and freeze-frame different situations of how Emma Jane and the animals could get back to dry land.

 

Christmas Fair

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the KS2 Christmas Fair last week. We had lots of fun looking around the amazing products KS2 children and staff had been busy making over the week. We hope they made lots of profit.

Knighton Food bank!

We are very pleased to be supporting Knighton Food bank this year.  Helen Anderson has been to visit Foundation Phase to explain to us how the food bank supports local people.

If you would like to donate any non-perishable food items, please see Sarah by 2nd December.

Thanks

Foundation Phase Disco!

Many thanks to the Friends of the School for organising a fabulous end of half term disco for us.  A lovely time was had by all!

Foundation Phase Party!

Children in the Foundation Phase all enjoyed a fabulous party which they had organised on Friday 25th October.  The children had been working very hard planning the party entertainment, fancy dress theme, and the advertising of the party.  I’m sure you’ll agree that they did a fantastic job and looked amazing in their costumes.  Well done!

Physical Literacy

Hwyaid Bach have been using their physical skills even more today.

We started by doing a few stretches to warm-up our bodies. Then we used coloured scarves and moved our bodies to music; ‘Busy Feet’.

We acted like a variety of animals.

Science STEM Morning

The children thoroughly enjoyed looking at ‘Seasonal Change’. We focused on rainfall and decided to make ‘Rain gauges’. we place two in the Quad area and two in the car park.

The children have had a fantastic time over the last three days monitoring the rainfall. With today’s rainfall, we had to measure the water using two measuring jugs as it was too much to fit into one.

Literacy Enrichment Day

We have had lots of fun ‘role playing’ and retelling the story of Handa’s Surprise.  We all acted as different characters from the story and got into ‘role’ with confidence.

 

 

 

 

Autumn Term 2019 – Parent Information Sheet Hwyaid Bach

Welcome back after the Summer holidays!

This term we have got an exciting new topic, ‘Fantasy and Fairy tales’. We will be studying a range of stories through this topic starting with ‘The Three Little Pigs’. This topic will be studied using the ‘Mantle of the Expert’ approach which is linked to the new child-initiated Curriculum.

Important things to remember

Please label all of your child’s clothes – uniform, coats, P.E. kits, book bags, wellies and spare clothes.

Every day:   Home readers (yellow) book which will contain your child’s HWB password.

A water bottle, filled with water only.

A piece of fruit as a morning snack.

A coat.

Tuesday: Swimming kit/test spellings.

Thursday: P.E kit/change home readers.

As September is often warm and sunny, please can you ensure your child has sun cream and a sunhat in school as they will be working outside during the day.

Parental Support

Please could you read with your child as regularly as possible and write a comment in their yellow book so that we know that your child has read at home. As children in Reception will carry out spellings and minute maths, we will be changing home readers once a week.

If you are able to help with our swimming sessions on a Tuesday afternoon, please speak to Sarah in the office or Miss Davies (class teacher). This support would be greatly appreciated.

If there is anything you would like to discuss with us, then please feel free to make an appointment at the office. We are always happy to help.

As we are a Healthy School, we encourage the children to bring in a piece of fruit for their morning break. It is also possible to buy bananas and apples from Sarah in the office for 30p. Please note that only fresh fruit or raisins/sultanas can be eaten at break time. We would appreciate if you could name your child’s snack please.

 

Thank you for your support

Miss Davies and Mrs Wozencraft.
