Years 1 and 2 A very warm welcome to the Year 1 and 2 class, to the children and the parents. The class teacher is Miss Hughes and Miss Elen Jones is the classroom assistant. The Reception class will be joining us every Thursday and Friday afternoon. Miss Einir Jones will be teaching the class on a Thursday afternoon. P.E. lessons will be on a Wednesday afternoon. The children will need appropriate clothes and they can keep their P.E. kit at school. The P.E. kit will be sent home at the end of the half term so that you have an opportunity to wash the kit. Then, the kit needs to be returned to school at the start of the next halt term. Reading books will be changed on a Friday and the children will need to bring their reading bags to school every day. It’s very important that you read with your child every day. You are welcome to read extra books from the library or books that you have at home with your child. It’s very important that you read with your child every day and we appreciate your comments in the ‘reading record’. Please feel free to record any ‘extra books’ in the reading record. Our theme is ‘ Celebrations’ and the work will be partly based on the book ‘Priodas y Ddau Fwgan Brain,’ by Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffer, adapted by Gwynne Williams. We will follow some of the children’s ideas and you are welcome to discuss the theme at home with your child and offer ideas. Languages, Literacy and Communiacation In our language work we will be discussing and writing a personal report on their summer holiday, instructions, persuasive writing, poster, rules, letter, portrait, description, invitation and lists.
