‘Learning about caring; caring about learning’

Oak – Reception

Croeso Oak Class

This term we are trying to make a difference to our community. 

We have learned about what a community is and made our own communities in the blocks, paint and play dough.






Tuesday 2nd June.

Hello everybody, I hope you had a fun, restful and safe half term. I did, I spent some time in my garden enjoying the sunshine. I love being in my garden, looking after the plants, Mrs Watkins was in her garden for her video this week. Did you see it? She talked about looking after plants and animals and also looking after each other. We are used to giving a hug or a pat on the back or a high five to each other to show we care. This week I would like you to practise your virtual hugs and thumbs up instead. I have given you some pictures and maybe you could practise with people you meet. I loved your emotion pictures from last week, thank you for those, keep talking about how you feel and I am sending you a virtual hug.

Keep safe, Mrs Lewis.

Tuesday 19th May.

Hello everybody, how do you feel? Have a think about it, how do you really feel?

When I speak to you on the phone most of you say that you are feeling good or happy. I wonder if this week you could use some of the emotions words we learned in school. Happy, sad, worried, excited, angry. We all feel these things sometimes, of course we do and that's ok. This week I want you to try putting these words into sentences with your family. I will start you off.

​​​​​​​I feel sad because I am missing my friends.

​​​​​​​I feel angry because I am not allowed to go out for dinner.

​​​​​​​I feel happy because I can eat my dinner in my garden.

Will you have a go at talking about how you feel this week? 


Thursday is Outdoor learning day so please spend some time outside, see if you can see any tiny little animals, maybe bugs or beetles or worms. Ask a grown up to write down what you see and then count them up.


Have a lovely week, see you soon. 

Mrs Lewis.

Tuesday 12th May

Hello everybody! Have you all had a look at the video Mrs Watkins has put on Facebook? She has given us all an important job to do. We can draw a leaf and write on it something we like about lockdown. I know some of you are having a fun time because you tell me when I phone, so if you have learned to ride your bike or made a den, that could go on your leaf.

We are also going to make a butterfly with one word that is a wish for the future. 

Lots to think about this week. If you do your butterfly or leaf on purple mash I will make sure Mrs Watkins gets them.

I have had a butterfly in my garden this week. It is a bit early but the warm weather must have brought it out. I wonder if you will see a real butterfly when you are out this week.

Miss you all, see you soon.

Mrs Lewis.

Tuesday 5th May

Hello everybody, I hope you are feeling happy today. You sounded happy on the phone yesterday. Lots of you asked how I was feeling, that was very kind of you.

I am feeling OK, but I do miss you and I can't wait to be back in school. 

Friday is a special day, it is a day to celebrate the end of a war. I love celebrations and I know you do too. Perhaps you could decorate your house or have party food. Perhaps you could make a party hat. Maybe you could help make sandwiches or cakes. I am going to put some links up but I know lots of you will have your own good ideas.

Keep safe, see you soon.

Mrs Lewis.


Lots of you have asked for reading ideas. Read write inc have their own you-tube channel and are putting up lots of lessons. It is really good but please remember that our children only know the set one sounds. I know that the children have finished the reading books I sent home, I have found a couple more to read and will keep looking out for them.

Mrs Lewis

Hello Everybody, it was lovely to hear you on the phone yesterday. I know I missed some of you but if you need me you can email will get to me.

This week I have I have been out on my walk looking at all the rainbows in the windows. They all look so pretty. Could you draw or colour a rainbow on Purple mash and leave it for me? Or colour or paint one with your family? I have found some fun rainbow jobs as well. It is going to rain this week so wouldn't it be great if you saw a real rainbow? Keep safe, miss you all, Mrs Lewis.

Monday 20th April

Hello, I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday. It was so nice to hear you all on the phone this morning. It sounds as though you are doing some fun things with your families.

If you have saved work on Purple mash I have looked at it and written you a little message.

I saw this game on CBeebies this morning and thought it might be fun.

The weather is so beautiful at the moment, if you can, go out try to find some signs of spring and talk to your family about seasons.

If you go onto purple mash you could draw me a beautiful spring picture and I might put it on here.

​​​​​​​Keep yourselves safe, Mrs Lewis.

Its lovely to see so many of you on Purple Mash. If you save your pictures I will write you a little comment. This beautiful butterfly was drawn by Leela.

Home Learning

Be a global explorer!

We live in Wales. Wales is a country. Do you know the names of any other countries?

I'd like you to think about a different country.

What country have you chosen and why?

Can you find out about it?

Can you draw a picture or write some words to say why you like this country.

Maybe you could make a poster or a flag for the country.

We can't wait to find out what you have chosen!!
