Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

 

 

This half term we will look at the topic 'Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes'.  In this topic the children will  find out about how their body works and how to look after themselves as they grow up.  We will look at parts of our bodies in Science along with our senses. Our RE focus will be 'Special books' and trying to answer the big question - What can we learn from stories from the Bible?  In Welsh we will explore the key questions and language patterns of: Sut mae’r tywydd? and 'Beth sy’ yn y bag? We will continue to learn Italian and will look at parts of our bodies.  In Maths, we will look at measuring and recording data and in our literacy sessions, we will continue to learn our set 1 RWI phonics sounds, develop our oracy skills and practice forming  letters correctly.

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. 

Four purposes

 

 

In Taff Fechan, we will begin to support ourselves and each other in becoming:

 

  • Ambitious, capable learners who are ready to learn throughout their lives.
  • 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.

Homework

 

Summer term 1 homework grid. Children may do as many homework tasks as they like and bring them into school to share with the class whenever a task has been completed.

        Christian Values                 

           

  

                                                                     

 

Our school Christian Value for this term is  Trust

 

Trust is a really important value. It must be earned. If we do not trust someone it is very hard to build a good friendship with them.

Talk together about:

• people who you know that are trustworthy

• practical ways that we can show others that we are trustworthy

• why it is important to be able to trust others when working together as a team
