Dinas Powys Primary School Croeso


Distance Learning

Summer Term

Week beginning 13.6.20

So here we are at the end of the Summer Term.

It has been so lovely to see so many of you return to school on your Bubble Day.

Thankyou for an amazing, if unusual school year.


Thankyou for your participation in our Distance Learning and for all the lovely emails and photos during our time apart.

Many of you will now be leaving Nursery to move on to Reception. While some of you will be returning.

Here are some suggestions to prepare for the move to Reception in the Autumn Term.

  • Practise recognising your name
  • Practising the letters in your name- over writing, under writing, from memory- you need to start with a capital letter and then use lower case letters
  • Practise your sounds- match letters to sounds
  • Use the Jolly Phonic link below
  • Familiarise yourself with the characters from the Oxford Reading Tree- use the link below to access the site
  • Practise recognising numbers- initially to 5, then to 10 and above 10
  • Practise chanting numbers in order
  • Practise touch counting accurately and being able to recall how many items are in the set
  • Have a go at writing your numbers
  • Practise dressing and undressing yourself- including your shoes and socks!


 It is important that the children continue to practise and consolidate the Early Years Skills some of which are outlined below.
