We Are Family!

Our school project this term is “We are Family”

“ Teulu ydyn ni”

Reception have been exploring what “family” means to them! We have been reading about families all over the world and talking about similarities and differences. Keep an eye on this page for lots of pictures of our learning! I will also be posting lots of ideas for home learning. The children have settled in beautifully and have had a brilliant first week all together.

Da iawn Dosbarth Eliffant!
