We are encouraging the children to access j2e blast on HWB

Reading is so important and we ask that you try and read
as often ask you can with your child at home.
Each time your child reads at home and have a comment in their
reading record they will receive a Dojo point!
10 Dojo points = 1 Merit point!
A spelling list will go home with your child once a week. It will go home on a Friday and they will be tested on the same day the following week. It is important that your child learns their spellings and completes the attached activity sheet, which will always consist of handwriting practice and an additional activity.
ClassDojo is a website that we use in a variety of ways.
You can access it online or by downloading an app.
Each child has their own avatar and they earn points for different things e.g. working hard, reading at home, good manners etc. If they earn 10 points or more in a week they will earn a merit point!
We post information for parents of our individual classes as a Class Story.
We can also send individual messages to parents
if we need to send a quick reminder or message about something.
As part of our topics we will go on a variety of trips.
We offer the children the opportunity to go on an overnight trip to the outdoor activity centre Rhos-y-gwaliau in Bala. Whilst we are there the children take part in a range of activities such as gorge walking, hill walking, kayaking and having fun on the zip wire!
