Class 2 - Rec, Years 1 and 2

Welcome to our Class page, here is some information that you may find useful.

Mrs Laura Evans is the Foundation Phase Leader and is responsible for the running of our classes. 

Our Foundation Phase team include Mrs Sian Williams, HLTA, Miss Ella TA, and Mrs Gina Wilkins TA.

 

Learning starts at 9 am everyday, so please make sure you arrive at school on time. Our school day finishes at 3pm unless alternative arrangements have been made e.g taxi or after school club.

 

Reading days- Children have allocated days which are recorded in your child's reading diary. However, we do ask that your child has their book bag in school every day.

Snack-You can pay for fruit using ParentPay. Alternatively, you can send fruit in with your child everyday. We are a healthy school, so only fruit will be given at snack times.

PE- Our PE day is Thursday, we ask that children come to school in their kits please and will remain in their kits for the school day. There is a school PE kit which can be purchased from First Class Clothing in Prestatyn.

Homework- Year 2 will receive homework on a Thursday which will be set on Seesaw, I ask for it to be completed by the following Wednesday. Children in Years 1 and 2 will also have weekly spellings to learn for a test on a Friday. We ask that Reception children go through sounds and flashcards as often as possible to support their learning.
