Lot's of you said you enjoyed making the 'feelings rolls' yesterday and that they helped you think about your feelings and how you can do things to change your feelings. Some of you added hair to your rolls too, which we loved!

Today maybe you would like to create a giant head and add lots of features - you could swap them over and ask people in your family how they are feeling today. Remember all feelings are ok. Sometimes we can feel sad and don't know why. But we also know things that make us let's do lots of those things cheeky

giant emotions board


If you don't have a large piece of paper you could stick a few smaller pieces together. Remember to try and cut out the facial features yourself and cutting skills are something we work on lots in school.


Maybe you would also like to listen to 'The Feelings Song' on

There are lots of counting, alphabet and days of the week songs on here to that may help with your learning and feel happy to watch.

Thursday 28th January 2021

Bore da pawb, we hope you are all well smiley


Today lets think about our feelings. Sometimes we are happy, sometimes sad, and sometimes in the middle. Look at these emotion rolls - maybe you would like to make some using toilet rolls, kitchen rolls or rolled up sheets of paper.


Throughout the day check how you are feeling. All feelings are ok, but the more we check how we are feeling the more we can do things to take us from sad to happy or gweddol to happy.


 We all love to sing the song 'If your happy and you know it'. There are lots of versions on You tube to choose from - join in with the actions and have a lovely time smiley

This one is my favourite:

Today we have another counting game for you to play. If you  don't have paper plates you could use any bowls you have at home or draw some circles on paper. You could scrunch up old papers to make balls or use Lego bricks or some pasta shapes to count. Remember to use number to 10 at first, when you are confident with these... go to 15.... and then to 20. Have fun!

maths plates


You may also fancy being creative. It's cold outside - 'Mae hi'n oer' so why not make a lovely hat and mitten set mobile. Ask a grown up to help you try to cut out the shapes yourself and stick on any collage materials you can find. You might like to hang your mobile in the window; remember to send us some pictures.

Next you could create a reading game that will help you learn all your key words. Write each of your key words twice on a board and cover with post its. Then reveal two words at a time and see if you can make a matching pair. If you reveal a matching pair score a point. If you don't put the post its back and let your partner have a go.

Listen to the Sesame Street song below for some ideas. 


Once you have helped someone today, you could make yourself a kindness crown just like the animals made for George! Use any craft materials you have in the house to decorate your crown. Maybe you could colour it in different colours or stick sequins or gems to it. 

If you like, you could send us a photo of you wearing your crown on j2e.

Good afternoon everyonesmiley

In school we have been working on the sounds s, a, t, p, to date and making words with these sounds in them. We then attempt to write the word we are sounding out:

at, sat, pat, tap, sap. We have also been looking at rhyming words.

We also complete Guided Group reading and individual reading in class each week.



1. Practise using the letters to make the words and write the words each day, and record them on the laminated sheet.

2. Practise writing numbers each day. Begin with 1 to 5. If your child is confident with this, continue to 10, then 12, 15 and then to 20.

3. Read 'The mouse and the Elephant' and 'Under our feet'. You may want to create a picture about one of the books on J2e. - Happy reading!


Friday 6th November 2020


Good afternoon everyone,

We have a had a very positive first week back; I can see that you have all been working really hard at home during the self isolation period. Many children are now writing their names independently and numbers are improving by the day - Gwych!


We have carried out reading assessments this week and some children are ready to move onto the next set of words. Mrs Clatworthy and I are currently organising some more reading resources, phonics cards and number games to support you at home. On completion these will be placed in a bag, quarantined for 48 hours and then sent home to you. These are for you to use at home and do not need to be returned to school. Instructions on how to use the pack will be included.



Please could you paint me a beautiful Bonfire picture on J2e or you may want to draw some Remembrance Poppies as we have done in school.


In school we are now counting up to 20.

Ask a grown up to help you complete:

20 claps of the hands

20 claps on the elbows

20 claps on the knees

20 star jumps

20 frog jumps

Count from 1 to 20 as you do each activity.

Maybe you can think of other activities you can count



Hope you all have a lovely weekend

Friday 23rd October 2020

Hello everyone, we hope you are well.


Today we are going to think about feelings and emotions.

Sometimes we feel happy (hapus), sometimes we may feel sad ( trist). Sometimes we may feel angry (crac) and sometimes we might just feel in the middle (gweddol)


Maybe you could draw or paint some faces to describe all these feelings and think about when you may feel angry/upset, happy, sad or in the middle. How are you feeling today? And how are you feeling Mums and Dads? There are a few examples below:


Remember to keep practising writing your names, numbers to 10 and reading your key words too.


Next week is half-term, so time to play games with your families and maybe watch some movies. If you do need to message me you can do so  through  J2e.


See you all back in school on Monday 2nd November smiley

Maybe you could also practise writing your name over and over to develop your independence and confidence.



Watch and listen to The Shape Songs on you tube

Ask a grown up to draw some circles, triangles, squares and rectangles on a sheet of paper, or you could try drawing them yourselves. Then colour  in the shapes and ask a grown up to help you cut them out. You could then use them to make a shape character or picture. Or you may want to draw a shape picture on J2e.

Have fun!

Good morning everyone, we hope you are all well.

As you are all aware our learning will be online for the rest of the week.


Activities -Mathematical Development:

For the past few weeks we have been reading about Superworm. Maybe you could:

1. Draw or paint some long superworms and some short superworms. Ask a grown up to help you cut them out and then sort them from longest to shortest, or shortest to longest.

2. Draw 10 leaves for Superworm to eat and write the numbers 1 to 10 on each leaf.



1. If you were Superworm, how would you help your friends? Maybe you could draw a picture on paper or on J2e and scribe a sentence for a grown up to help you write.


Also, well-being homework was placed on J2e last Friday. Please could this be completed by Friday 23rd October - many thanks.


We hope you all have a good day. Remember to get some fresh air and have a little run around too,

best wishes from Class 2 staff

Hello everyone, homework this week is on J2e.

For us teachers to be able to support you even more in school there are a few questions for you to answer with a grown up.


Also maybe you would like to go on the paint section an create a lovely autumn picture.


Remember to keep practising your key words, writing your name and numbers to 10 - these skills are so important! smiley

Good afternoon everyone,


I hope you are well.

Well done to everyone who logged onto J2e ( Just 2 easy) on Hwb and completed their Literacy homework. I read that you love visiting the park and beach. I hope the weather is sunny this weekend and maybe you will get another chance to visit. I hope you also managed to log onto Oxford Owl and read some of the suggested books.


This week in school we have been reading about 'Superworm' and we have made superworms, measured superworms, learnt superworm rhymes, drawn superworms and painted superworms. We have been very busy! We also enjoy practising writing our numbers to 10 each morning.

We have also been working hard trying to read our first 9 key words, but we need to do lots more work at school and at home to become confident with them. Here they are again

Homework - reading and writing


1. Practise writing your name ( as many times as you can)

2. Practise reading the first 9 key words ( as many times as you can)

3. Practise writing numbers 1 to 5.  ( If you know these go onto 1 to 10)

4. Read one of the suggested books on Oxford Owl.


Thank you for your continued support,


Hope you have a lovely weekend

Good afternoon everyone smiley Pryn hawn da!


We have had another fabulous week in Class 2 and it feels like we have never been away.

Well done to everyone who completed their home work last week and for telling me about it. Unfortunately we are not able to take in paper home work at the present time to mark, but it is lovely talking to the children about what they have been doing.


This week maths homework will be via 'My Maths'. Everyone has been emailed login details this week. Use these details to log on to My Maths and go into Class 2 - there you should find a counting activity which I will be able to see on completion.  Have fun!


Hope you all have a lovely weekend


Mrs Squires

Homework- Friday 18th September

Hello everyone

What a fantastic first two weeks we have had!


This week we have been working hard on sequencing numbers to 10.


Home learning this week is:

  • Count from 0 to 10
  • Count back from 10 to 0
  • Count on two starting from any number e.g. start at 3 and count on 2, start at 5 and count on 2

 Challenge: Count to 20!


Then you can go on a treasure hunt

Find and count 5 buttons

Find and count 6 pencils/pens

Find and count 7 flowers

Find and count 8 leaves

Find and count 9 twigs

Find and count 10 pasta shapes


You could then make a beautiful picture with all the things you have collected. Have fun!



Dear Parent/Carer,

Welcome to Class 2 and Reception year.

Even though it has been a very unusual start to the new academic year, the children have all settled really well into Class 2, and it has been so wonderful to see them all again and yourselves. The children are becoming familiar with our new classroom and our daily routines.  We are creating our own ‘class bubble’ and our daily routine involves regular hand washing and sanitising, which the children are taking great responsibility for. We are reminding the children to cough or sneeze into their elbow and get a tissue to wipe their noses.

Our topic focus at the moment is on Wellbeing, ensuring all pupils are happy, settled and ready for learning.

Class information

  • PE for this half term will be carried out outside so the children may wish to wear trainers and joggers/leggings on a Wednesday for our PE sessions.
  • While we shall be continuing to read daily in class, no reading books will be sent home this term. Home reading support will be provided using an online system, which we shall inform you about soon. Until then please support your child by encouraging them to read any books you may have at home or use the following website –
  • Outdoor Learning shall be a key feature for many of our learning activities so please provide your child with a pair of wellies that can be left in school and ensure they wear a waterproof coat with a hood daily.
  • Home tasks will be set weekly on a Friday (starting from next week) and will be set online on our class page on the school website.
  • Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school every day, clearly marked with their name and filled from home. Fruit snack will be eaten at morning play. There is no need to bring any other resources to school.

I shall be regularly updating our class page on our school website (  and you may also like to  follow us on twitter @BryncethinPS2.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to phone the school office on 01656 815840, leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mrs Squires
