We hope that your child is enjoying their time in reception class at St Fagans Church in Wales School. We have been enjoying getting to know all the children and learning all about them ready for the busy year ahead. Below is some key information about the class but we will also send reminders and messages using the dojo app so please keep checking your notifications.
The class teacher in reception class is Miss Asquith and the LSAs are Miss Parsons ( Tuesday to Friday), Mrs Sharp (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Wilkinson (Thursday and Friday). Mrs Dowers is also in class supporting at various times during the week and Mrs Parfitt teaches the class on a Tuesday afternoon when Miss Asquith has her PPA time. We will be using Class Dojo to update you on a more regular basis so please check your notifications.
Our School Christian Value for this half-term is thankfulness.
Please talk to the children about what thankfulness means to you in your family and perhaps ask them to share what we have talked about in our class worship sessions and during assembly with you. You might like to spend some time talking with them about what they are thankful for and then saying a simple prayer together thanking God for these things.
All About Me
Our topic for the start of this half-term is called All About Me; we will be thinking about our families, how we have changed since we were babies, our favourite things and even what we would like to be when we grow up. If you haven’t already, please can you remember to send in a family photo and baby photo of your child so that we can use them in class to help with our topic. We will be carrying out lots of fun activities throughout in order to engage the children and help them with their learning.
Snack money is 25p a day and so this half term is £9.50. Please can this be paid directly to class in a clearly labelled envelope. Thank you if you have already paid, if you haven't then please could we have it as soon as possible!
Dinner money is paid using the grouped website. Please can you make sure your child’s account is in credit before booking meals.
PE and Forest Schools
We carry out PE lessons on a Tuesday. Please can the children come to school in joggers and velcro trainers, NO jewellery please! If your child does have stud earrings then please can you cover them before they come to school. Thank you!
Forest schools also takes place on a Tuesday but on a fortnightly basis. The children can come to school in their joggers etc but can they please also come dressed in their wet weather gear and wellies. They will need to bring in a change of clothes including socks and shoes so that they can change after the session. If you could also include a carrier bag for any wet/muddy clothes and wellies that would be great.
