Congratulations to this week’s VIP in Taff Fechan 

At the beach in Wales



This half term we will look at the topic 'At the beach in Wales'.  In this topic the children will find out about some of the  beaches we have in Wales and the exciting activities that happen during the season of summer - from eating ice cream to jetting off on holiday.  We will look at the properties of sand in Science along with how water changes. We will investigate what floats and what sinks and will design our own sandcastles.  Our RE focus will be 'Special places' and trying to answer the big question - What makes places special?  In Welsh we will explore the key questions and language patterns of: Beth sy’ yn y fferm? and 'Beth wyt ti eisiau?' We will continue to learn Italian and will look at different animals such as pets and farm animals.  In Maths, we will look at capacity, counting in 2's and 10 along with looking at 2D and some 3D shapes.  We will continue to learn our set 1 RWI phonics sounds, develop our oracy skills and practice forming letters correctly in our Literacy sessions.

Pupil Voice - At St David's we encourage the children to engage in their own learning. If your child would like to learn about something linked to our topic, or if you have a lovely suggestion for an activity that could support this topic, please email Mrs Underhill-Jones at nursery@stdavidsprm.cardiff.sch.uk.

  • Enterprising, creative contributors who are ready to play a full part in life and work.
  • Ethical, informed citizens who are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world.
  • Healthy, confident individuals who are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.
