Welcome back to Dosbarth Pinc
We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!
Congratulations to Harrison and Thiago who have become big brothers over the festive period.
During the first half of the Spring Term our theme will be 'Where does snow go?'.
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!. Why does snow melt? How can we keep warm? This half term it is time for us to explore the frosty but fascinating season of winter. We will need to wrap up warm and head outside for wintery walks, to spot frosty windows, icy puddle, icy grass and steamy breaths. Back in the classroom. we'll warm up and try hot chocolate and dress dolls and teddies in outfits that will keep them warm. Along with exploring the freezing and melting process and listening to winter themed booked.
Please can all snack money (£1pw) be paid on a Monday morning.
Our class PE will continue to take place on Thursday, please can all children come to school in their chosen kit.
This term, we will be outside to explore our Wintery theme, please ensure your child is dressed suitably.
Pack Lunch: This has been a huge success for our children. All children are happier eaters and are developing a wider range of tolerances to food. It is important that we continue to support this. Please ensure your child's pack lunch is not over loaded with food, this can be daunting and stressful.
A healthy pack lunch could include...

Once Upon a Time
This project supports children to develop a love of stories and reading. It encourages children to learn, retell and act out familiar and traditional tales including Cinderella, Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
Sparkle and Shine
This project teaches children about the celebrations that take place during the Autumn and Winter seasons, and focus on the significance and symbolism of light at this time of the year.
As part of our provision, we run a number of interventions that are specialised to the development of language, communication and engagement. One of the interventions run within the class is Language Link. Infant Language Link provides planned an resourced interventions for a graduated approach. High quality teaching strategies and classroom resources are used.
Language Link can also be taught at home through simple activities and talking to your child. Please see the links below to view the Parents Portal page. The page is full of rich content and can be downloaded with support sheets to help at home.
