Welcome to Nant Cwm Sarn

Mrs Rossiter and Miss Hewer

Electric Rainbow

 

General information

P.E lessons will be on Monday and the children will need to bring black shorts and a white t-shirt. We ask the children to keep their kit in school during half term and it will be returned before February half term. (Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled and in a bag).

We encourage independence in year 1 and therefore expect the children to take responsibility for their belongings. In order to do this please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled.

Homework will be set periodically to reinforce the work presented to the children in class. It is a good way for you as parents to know what your child is doing in school.

Your child will need to return their reading book every Monday morning as we read daily with the children.
