Shwmae, Mrs Walters ydw i. This is my third year teaching at Cyfarthfa Park Primary and I am thrilled to be working in Reception again! I am a Mum of three who loves gardening, reading, painting and drawing when there is time! But there is nothing I like more than a little Dough Disco, Digit Dance or outdoor learning while in school and am particularly excited about exploring some wonderful activities with all of Dosbarth 2 and Dosbarth 3 in the coming year.

Maths - Summer Term

What we will be working on-

1. Capacity

2. Temperature

3. Money

How you can help -

1. Let your child explore using different size measuring jugs or containers, playing with liquids. Concentrate on full, empty, and half full.

2. Talk to your child about temperature, use phrases like, cold, colder, warm, warmer and hot. You can talk about the weather, colder in winter, warmer in summer. Let them feel the temperature of warm and cold things to gain an actual sense of temperature.

3. Show your child money. Talk about the numbers on the different coins. Play shop games so your child gets a sense of spending money. Concentrate on 1p 2p 5p and 10p.
