Please bring your book bag to school every day. Children will be reading in school daily and we will ensure your child's book is changed weekly. Please remember to do some reading at home every night.
Please bring a bottle of water to school daily, clearly labelled with your name. Healthy snacks can be purchased from the snack trolley (ordered via ParentPay) or brought in from home.
Please wear your PE kit to school on Thursday. Children should wear black shorts, house colour or white t-shirt and trainers, labelled clearly with their name. They may also wear black jogging bottoms when completing activities outdoors. Miss Powell will be teaching PE on Thursday afternoons either in the hall or outside (weather permitting).
Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child's name.
Our topic for the Summer Term B is Michael Recycle! In all areas of the curriculum, we will be learning about recycling, the environment and living a healthy lifestyle with a key focus on Science and Technology.
Pupil Voice is very important to us at St David's and as part of the New Curriculum. Just take a look at some of the interesting questions the class have already generated:
All our planning will be based around the Six Area of Learning Experience and the Four Core Purposes. Take a look at the Inquiry Planning for this half term, showing the pupils learning journey.
During our worship time on Mondays, we have been learning about current news, topics and events. Then we have been exploring the key questions linked to these further in class. Here are some of the questions we have been discussing.
When discussing the Picture News, we have been challenging ourselves to use new, ambitious vocabulary to describe our feelings and opinions.
Take a look at all the amazing work and experiences we have been doing in Dosbarth Ely!
Congratulations Henry Webster on becoming VIP!
For excellent understanding of The Last Supper and having a positive attitude change towards writing. Miss Morgan is so proud :)
The Welsh Language is very important to us at St David's. We encourage both staff and children to use incidental Welsh both inside and outside the classroom. We enjoy our daily Helpwr Heddiw sessions to support children in learning new phrases by playing fun Welsh games.
This half term, we will be exploring French greeting phrases through fun games and activities.
Languagenut is a wonderful online tool where children can access resources to support the development of their new language. Each child will have their own log in details where they can gain points for activities completed. Languagenut will also give you the correct pronunciation of words and phrases.
All children should have brought home their login details, however if you need a reminder please contact email@example.com.
WOW is a pupil led initiative where children self-report how they get to school every day using our interactive WOW tracker. If pupils travel sustainably (walk, cycle or scoot) once a week for a month, they are rewarded with a WOW badge at the end of the month.
Please support our mission by encouraging your child to travel sustainably to school or use our Park & Stride arrangement and park at Pentwyn Leisure Centre.
As Dosbarth Ely represent the school by leading our Eco initiatives, I encourage our class to work together to keep our bodies healthy and reduce our carbon footprint.
We would like you to take part in our 101 Experiences challenge - 101 things for your child to experience during their time at St David’s C.I.W. Primary School. We would be delighted to see our children doing these activities outside of school, so please send in any evidence of each experience to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each time a child achieves 5 experiences from the same category, they will get a sticker which shows the religious character which symbolises the associated purpose from the Four Purposes of the new curriculum.
Please practice phonics sounds at home with your child. Here are just some of the set sounds we will be looking at in class on a daily basis.
