Welcome to Class 1's webpage.
We have an exciting and busy term planned for your child's first year of full time school.
Class teacher: Mrs Walsh
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Thomas and Mrs Lewis
We kicked off the term with a wonderful topic called 'teeny tiny things'. This topic is an 'Knowledge and Understanding of the World' topic. It enables the children to explore Teeny Tiny Things in the world they live as well as exploring the world of Minibeasts .
Our Religion topic is all about'Friends'. We will be looking at the message Jesus gave us, 'love one another'.
PE: The children will have PE every Thursday. Your child will need to bring to school in a bag - shorts and T-shirt. Please label all items of clothing. Remember that children are not allowed to wear jewellery to school!
Homework : Homework will be sent home on Friday and will need to be returned the following Wednesday.
Reading: When your child is reading for a reading book, they will be sent home on a Friday and will need to be returned the following Tuesday. Wednesday at the latest.
Snack Money: In line with our healthy eating policy, the children will be provided with a healthy snack at playtime.
£1:50 each week to be paid on Monday. If you are providing your child with a snack from please ensure it is fruit.
St David's Day Celebration
Class 1 performed a Welsh song to the whole school as part of St Mary's Eisteddfod.
Children came to school dressed as a character from their favourite book. Pupils from the junior classes read the books to the children from the infant classes before everyone in the school enjoyed a parade in the playground.
We met Cardiff Castle's resident Knight and enjoyed a lesson in how to defeat the dragon and save Mrs Walsh. We made up our own battle cry and the pupils took great delight in beating the teachers in the "Feed the Dragon" game.
July 13, 2017
We celebrated the end of our Reception year and our final topic - "Teeny Tiny Things" with a Mini-beast Party.
Children made beautiful pictures, minibeast cookies and jelly before donning party hats and going on on a mini-beast hunt. We played party games including "pin the wings on the bee" and enjoyed some stories, dancing and summer treats on a day to remember!
