Our context for learning overviews


We teach through half term or termly contexts for learning and will keep you updated on what exciting experiences we have got planned each week. Please see below for an overview of our context for learning which will give you an idea of what exciting experiences the children may have during the context. 



Weekly learning experiences


Please check this section regularly to see what learning experiences are being offered to the children each week.


Week beginning 15th October 2018

This week we will be focusing on the history of Cardiff. We will be comparing photos from 100 years ago and the present. The children will predict what they think Cardiff will be like in 100 years time. For their writing the children will look at features of a diary and will then write diary entry as though they lived 100 years ago. 


Week beginning 8th October 2018

We are reading George's Marvellous Medicine and will be looking at the layout and features of recipes next week. On Friday the children will be writing their own recipe for a marvellous medicine of their choice. 


Other activities this week include 

- Making fruit kebabs

- Watercolour paintings 

- Making pictures/patterns using conkers 

- Playing shape games


Wednesday Harvest Assembly 10.30am - Please help your child to learn the words to our song 'Cauliflowers fluffy.' Thank You 


Week beginning 1st October 2018

The children had a wonderful time last week at Cardiff Bay. They were extremely well behaved and you should all be very proud - we were! 


This week, following on from the trip, the children will be creating leaflets all about Cardiff. They will also be 'debugging' a computer programme and checking to see if works. Pupils will be completing a maths investigation and answering the question "How do you know?" to extend their use of mathematical vocabulary. 


Week beginning 24th September 2018

Believe it or not. We will be designing and making our Christmas cards this week. We will also be completing a maths investigation and learning about shapes. 

On Thursday we will be going on a school trip. The children are all very excited about this! 


Week beginning 17th September 2018

Cardiff Tales

This week pupils will be finding out more about Cardiff. They will be creating their own booklet using ICT. Pupils will need to remember to use headings and factual information. The children will also be using maps to locate Cardiff and Wales. 


We will also be having a sponsored read this week, so we will be encouraging children to read as much as possible during the school day and add it to their reading log. 


Spellings from phonic groups will go home each week. Pupils will then have a quick test on Monday. 


Week beginning 10th September 2018

Roald Dahl Focus Week
