Dosbarth Chirk – Nursery & Reception – Miss S Griffiths

Croeso i Dosbarth Chirk

Welcome back! I hope you have all had a super summer break and are ready to start a new adventure in class Castell Chirk. I am very lucky this year to have a mixed class of both Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children. They have all made an excellent start to the year and we thank you for your support so far in helping them to settle so well. During the first few weeks, our main aims will be to get to know your child and help him/her settle in to school life. Your child’s happiness is paramount to us. We want school to be a pleasurable, exciting, fun experience, a place that your child enjoys coming to, a place where he/she can relax and be him/herself.

We have lots of exciting things planned this Autumn term, Initially the topics during the first term will based around a range of different texts with lots of links to right and wrong actions, recognising different feelings and overall well-being. Alongside this we will be completing a Baseline Assessment with all children to aid our future teaching plans.

Looking at our weekly timetable:

Muddy Monday!

We will be going into the forest school each week come rain or shine! Please send your son/daughter into school, on this day in old appropriate clothes for the weather forecast. Waterproofs and wellingtons are kept in school.

P.E. (Reception only) This will be Thursday afternoon. Please send your son/daughter into school, on this day, in their P.E kit.

Foodie Friday!

Most Fridays we will be making or baking something related to our weekly focus book. Please provide a clean, labelled take away style tub, so the children can bring the goodies home.

Book Bags (Including reading books)

To come to school on a daily basis. We are using the Go Read app to log reading. All Parents/Guardians have been given their login information, please ensure you log each read on app.


A healthy snack is available in class each morning, payments need to be made via ParentPay at £1 a week.

School Dinners (Reception)

All Reception children are eligible for FREE school dinners. Lunches must be ordered before 8am of the morning required. They can be chosen in fortnightly intervals.

If you have any questions or queries, I am available on the door in the morning or once all the children have left class in the afternoons. I am also available via Class Dojo.
