Croeso i Dosbarth Pinc!
Welcome to Pink Class!
Dosbarth Pinc is our mixed reception and year one class. Our teacher this year is Ms Philpotts supported by Mrs Barrowdale, Mrs Deane and Mrs Davies/Mrs Parry in our class.
Our PE day is Thursday, could children please come into school dressed in their PE kit on this day. PE Kit should include their house colour t-shirt with dark bottoms and suitable footwear.
Children can bring in a water bottle to keep in class to drink throughout the day, please ensure only plain water is in the bottles and they are labelled with the child's name (they can be refilled as needed). The children can also bring in a fruit or vegetable snack, please also label this with their name to save confusion.
Please help your child to learn their initial sounds and then begin sounding out words using these sounds, words such as cat, dog, mat, man etc.
If your child already is confident with their phonic sounds please encourage correct letter formation and help them to learn keywords. We use Read Write Inc. as a phonics scheme.
We also encourage you to read books to your child as much as possible at home and listen to your child read books that are sent home and return to school the next day.
Please help your child to correctly form numbers. Some of the things we will be covering is: number recognition and formation as well as adding/taking away objects and using our fingers to add and take away, coins up to 10p, sharing amounts, measuring using things such as blocks, cubes and rulers, We will also be singing lots of number rhymes and watching numeracy videos.
In school all children are encouraged to become independent in their learning. We encourage children to take off and put on jumpers, coats, socks, shoes on their own. To support your child's independence we’d ask you to please practice these personal skills at home.
If you have any questions or would like any more information on how to help your child at home please do not hesitate to come and talk to us. Alternatively there will be an open evening in the near future, where we will have information and resources available for you to look at.
