We will also be extremely busy preparing for our Year 6 leavers assembly.
There will be regular updates of the children's work on our twitter page.
Please see attached the medium term plan for Sumer term. Pupil voice is very important to us at St David's. We look forward to generating ideas together as a class for our new topic.
All of our planning will be based around the six areas of learning and experience and the four core purposes.
Homework will be placed on Google Classroom every Friday. Please submit all homework by the following Wednesday so we are able to look at your wonderful work and send this back to you.
Each week, children will be asked to complete either a piece of numeracy or literacy based homework which will alternate from week to week. There will also be a termly homework grid sent out based on our topic. Children may do as many homework tasks as they like over the course of the term. Please see below for this terms homework grid. Children are allowed to complete their homework in whichever format they wish to choose. E.g hwb, PowerPoint, homework book, posters, etc.
Weekly spellings will also be taught in class and given to the children to practise at home.
The children will be rewarded for completing their homework by receiving dojos!
This week's VIP is... Ramani! A huge congratulations! You have shown beautiful manners all week and demonstrated a positive attitude to learning. Gwaith da!
Please bring a bottle of water to school daily, clearly labelled with your name. Healthy snacks can be purchased from the snack trolly or brought in from home. Children will be offered toast and milk in the morning.
Please wear your PE kit to school on Friday's. 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.
Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child's name.
Our school Christian Value this term is Peace.
This term in school we will be focussing on the value Peace. We will be hearing stories about peace from the Bible and examples from our daily lives. We hope that you will explore this value together at home too.

Everyone living in love and harmony
The four purposes are that all children and young people will be:
In Dosbarth Ogmore, we will start to look at each aspect of teaching and learning and how it will support us in becoming Ambitious, Capable Learners; Enterprising, Creative Contributors; Ethical, informed citizens and Healthy, Confident Individuals.
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 of the classroom. We enjoy our daily Helpwr Heddiw sessions to support children in learning new phrases by playing fun Welsh games.
This year we are going to be learning Spanish. We will be learning key Spanish 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 (Spanish). 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.
We are very proud that St David's is a healthy school. We encourage all children to eat healthy during snack and lunch times.
We are able to provide snack for your children in school at a daily cost of £2 per week / £14 per term. Please pay via Parent Pay.
Please ensure that your child has a labelled bottle in school daily, containing water only. We have fresh drinking water fountains, where the children can refill their bottles.
At St David's, we are extremely fortunate to have access to a range of different ICT devices. We promote the use of 'SMART' rules daily, as we know how important it is to stay safe online.
