Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

Happy New Year to you all! 


We hope that you have enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and managed to relax, unwind and spend time with your family and friends.

We hope that Father Christmas brought you all the presents you asked for. We certainly enjoyed relaxing and spending time with our families, eating lot of chocolates, watching lots of Christmas movies and going on long walks.


We are looking forward to an exciting new term, exploring our new theme together, sharing adventures and exciting opportunities in Reception.

We can't wait! 🥳

We look forward to an exciting Autumn term!! 😁

Our Google Classroom is now available and the logins sent home.

Please find below a guide to help navigate you around the platform. 

Using Google classroom is very easy and can be accessed
through most devices that can connect to the internet such as PCs, mac books,
tablets and mobile phones. If using a phone or tablet the Google classroom app
will need to be downloaded from the store (this is a free app). If using a PC
or mac book it can be accessed from simply opening a web browser such as
internet explorer, chrome or safari and loading up the google home page. 

The learning platform will be used for homework and communication from class teachers so please can we ask that you check it regularly. We will also place home learning work here, in the event of your child having to self-isolate.

If you have any questions/queries please ask, we appreciate that this will be new for many parents. 

Thank you for our continuing support. 😁

A helpful guide for using Google Classroom

We would like to welcome the new Reception children and their parents/carers to Llanyrafon Primary. The children have settled in well, been learning the routines, have enjoyed exploring the different learning areas and been making new friends. 


We have begun our theme about Space called 'Blast off!' and enjoyed the arrival of Aliens in Underpants from outer space!!!


We look forward to an exciting term with lots of amazing learning and getting to know more about the children. 


Any questions or queries please email the class teachers on the addresses below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

A few reminders for parents: 


  • Reception's P.E. sessions will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays. Children need to wear their PE kits in to school on those days. A red t-shirt, black shorts and training shoes. A dark tracksuit can be worn in the colder weather. 
  • Please can we ask that all clothes are clearly labelled with your child's name.
  • Please check the website and twitter @llanyprimary for important updates and information or ask one of the Reception staff.


Thank you for your continued support
