During our project the children will be given the opportunity to choose what they would like to learn and how they would like to develop their project. We will share some of the exciting things we learn with you as our project develops through regular class updates (see below). Throughout our project the children will be developing as:

  • ambitious, capable learners, ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world
  • healthy, confident individuals, ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

If you would like to get involved in our project and have expertise in any aspect of our project that you would like to bring into school, please contact the school office.


 Class Updates

We’re going to be busy this term! You can follow some of our progress on the Nursery Twitter page: @glasnursery
In addition, please see your child’s individual link to their SeeSaw page.

Nursery Information

The following information about Nursery may be helpful.  Any unexpected changes or updates to the following information will be communicated through SeeSaw or Twitter.



This term we will be developing a interest of reading through sharing different books.  Our learning will be based around the books Handa’s Surprise and Jack Frost.  We will be talking about the information on the front cover of the book also using the words author and illustrator.

All children can recognise their own name now,  so the children will begin to write their names using the letter formation we use at Glasllwch,  a number of times throughout the week.  Please encourage your child to have a go at writing their first name, holding the pencil correctly, always starting each letter at the correct starting place.

Please continue to have a variety of different mark making tools for your child to use at home (paint, chalk, crayons, thick pens, thin pens etc) to support their learning.



The children are very enthusiastic about numbers!  We will be singing number rhymes and songs, counting forwards and backwards and recognising numbers all around us.  Within our topic of Ice we will be sorting winter clothes and recognising simple winter repeating patterns, maybe some of us will create our own patterns!


Home Learning Opportunities

Please support your child’s learning at home by talking about the winter weather we will experience (hopefully) over the next few weeks, talk about the changes, the animals hibernating, frost on the car in the morning etc.  Point out to the children the type of clothing that they are wearing, radiators/fire on in the house to keep warm and share time on the ipad/computer looking at arctic animals such as penguins, polar bears and leaning facts about them.

If you have any soft toys such as a penguin or a polar bear please bring it into nursery with your child’s name on.  Any pictures that you print would be great to share too!
