Unfortunately, we can't hold transition meetings in school at the moment, but to support parents and carers, and children starting nursery and reception classes next year, we have produced two videos to give you a quick look and insight into our early years bases. We look forward to welcoming you into Gwladys Street's Nursery and Reception classes very soon!

Hello Nursery and Reception,
We hope that you are all okay and having lots of fun at home. Here are some ideas and links we have found to keep you busy. Hopefully we will see you all soon to find out about all the exciting things you have been up to with your families!
Don't forget to take lots of photographs and share them on our twitter pages: @GwladysStPrim using #GSPSHomeLearning.
Tag your class too so we can see all the wonderful things you are doing: @GSPSNursery and @GSPSReception
To support national and local charities during this uncertain time, Gwladys Street Primary School has made donations to both Great Ormond Street and Alder Hey Children's Hospital.
Pie Corbett has published brand new educational booklets and as a result of our donations, given the school permission to use the following resource. There are a wealth of activities included for children to be creative with and explore a number of different topics. We hope you enjoy using them, and don't forget to upload your hard work to Twitter via your class pages.
