Mrs Quinn’s Class News!

           Reception/Year 1

What a great start to the new school year it’s been with all our Reception children settled into full time school really quickly.

Our topic this term is ‘Are we there yet?’ and we’ve been finding out about transport and journeys. We all enjoyed a wonderful trip to Swansea Marina where we went on an amazing boat trip on The Copper Jack, visited The Waterfront museum and Swansea Transport Museum to see lots of really old vehicles.

We have learnt the story of Mr Gumpy’s Outing, performed it in front of an audience and even innovated the story to create our own version.

Chloe came to visit us from the NPT Road Safety Team and taught us all about Road and Seatbelt Safety.

We have had lots of fun in our Forest Schools sessions this half term. Thank you again to our super PTA group ‘Friends of Cymer’ for fundraising and buying us our great waterproof suits that have kept us clean and dry.

Everyone has been working hard on their handwriting this half term and even though we have only been using the cursive style for a few weeks we are seeing a huge improvement already. Keep up the hard work everyone.

Mrs Quinn’s Spring Term 2 Class News

Reception/Year 1

We’ve had great half term complete with sleet, snow, fog, rain, cloud and warm sunshine! The weather just can’t make its mind up!


This half term we continued with our topic ‘Fabulous Foods.’  Farmer Fred has been leaving us little notes and challenges to keep us busy and we have had lots of work to do to help him out. One day Farmer Fred left us a huge pile of carrots! We had to count them, weigh them, measure them and research things we could make with the carrots. After a class vote we decided to make a carrot cake, chop up some carrot sticks for snack, and blend some to make a carrot smoothie. They were all yummy and Farmer Fred was so pleased!

We had lots of fun learning about traditional Welsh foods during ‘Welsh Week’ this half term. We tasted a selection of lovely Welsh dishes and even cooked some of our own. Everyone looked great dressed up in their Welsh costumes and we finished off the celebrations with a Twmpath.


    Thank you so much again for the fabulous homework photos sent via Seesaw. It is always wonderful to share everyone’s homework videos and photos with the whole class and it provides a great opportunity for the children to talk about their experiences in front of their friends. If you have trouble sending in homework please ask a member of staff who will be more than happy to help.  


                          Have a lovely Easter break everyone.
