Class Information


Breakfast Club

Breakfast club is in the hall each morning between 8.30 - 8.45. If you would like your child to attend please complete an application form with Mrs Fairbrother. 



If you would like your child to receive snack, please pay £1.25 weekly or 25p per day.



P.E is every Monday, please send your child to school wearing their PE kit.  


Learning at home.

We will send a reading book home on Friday each week. It is vitally important to read with your child every day to develop their fluency and confidence. Please return their book on Thursday to be changed.


We will also send home key words for you to practise with your child. These key words help support their reading.



It is vitally important that your child attends school every day in order to achieve their full potential. It is equally important that your child arrives at school on time. It helps them to settle in to the day and missing valuable learning time.

If for any reason your child is absent, please notify school office straight away.


After school Clubs

There are lots of exciting clubs for your child to join after school.

Monday - Welsh club ( Mrs Gray-Thomas)

Tuesday - Sports club (Mrs Wallis and Mrs Perrins)

Thursday - Gardening club (Mrs O'Connor and Miss Dawe)

Please ask for a permission letter to join the club.

Online Safety

Always remember to stay safe online. Here are some things to remember.



Home Learning using HWB

Hwb is a platform that has a variety of resources to help your child with their learning. Your child has their own log in details.

Student View Google Classroom - Basic Intro

This video is basic introduction to the Student's View of Google Classroom. Google Classroom is a collaboration tool for teachers and pupils. Your teacher will create an online classroom and invite your child to the class or sent a code out via School. As well as using Google Classroom to complete tasks within school –we will create and assign homework tasks via Google Classroom too! Your child has their own username and password - they can access Google Classroom via the internet on any device.

Foundation Phase Learning


The children are at the centre of their own learning. We start each context by asking the children to share their ideas about what they would like to know and how they would like to learn about it. 'Pupil voice' then generates lots of exciting 'Busy Bee' jobs that the children complete each day as part of their independent learning.


Spring 1

Our context this term is all about our local area. We will be learning about features of Pentwyn and our capital city Cardiff. We will be celebrating St Dwynwen's Day and St David's |Day.In our roleplay we will be acting out Welsh stories using props and puppets.
