Welcome to the Reception Class Page

Dear Parents/ Guardians and the Children of the Reception classes:

We will be updating this page with ideas, suggestions and links to support you in your home learning.

For the next few weeks we hope you enjoy the following learning challenges.


Nursery and Reception online 'Clwb Clyd'

Clwb Clyd translates as 'Cosy Club'. We are hoping to take it in turns to share a video of us, taking part in either a storytelling session, a singing session, or a number/ nursery rhyme session during school closure. We are hoping that this is a positive way for your child to still feel connected to our school, and we hope that it offers some comfort and routine for your child by seeing/ hearing thier teacher during the week. 

We are hoping to upload videos onto the Plascrug YouTube Channel as often as we can. We will try our best to upload a new video every day (between Monday and Friday during term time) but please bare with us if this is not possible.

Please find us by searching for Plascrug School on YouTube, or by following the links below.
