Our topics for learning!

Topic 1: All about me

We learn the names for our body parts through songs and rhymes such as 'Heads, Shoulders, Knees & Toes'. We make a family tree with our parents as part of our parental involvement day. We also have a visit from Cardiff Teddy Bear Hospital where we explore organs in the body, x-rays and much more!


Topic 2: Stories and Rhymes

We explore a variety of animals and their sounds with Dear Zoo, play the role of The Troll in The Three Billy Goats Gruff and we make soft fluffy owls from Owl Babies. We have a virtual tour of an owl sanctuary and towards Christmas maybe even a visit from Santa!

Topic 3: World of Colour

Within this term we celebrate Chinese New Year, Shrove Tuesday and celebrate the works of Welsh Artist Rhiannon Roberts whose colour paintings bring Wales to life. We start the topic with a messy, vibrant colour mixing day. We explore colours in nature through our Colour Wheel walk and finish the topic with a colourful carnival!


Topic 4: There's No Place Like Home

We explore the sights and sounds of Llanrumney by going on a local walk, looking at houses, shops and parks. We learn about protecting the environment by understanding what it takes to keep our local area clean through recycling and litter picking.


Topic 5: Going Underground

What could we find if we dig, dig, dig? Dinosaurs? Moles? Rabbits? What should we use? Diggers? Dumpers? We go outside and find out!


Topic 6: Teddy Bear's Picnic

We go for a walk into our school's forest to discover a teddy bear's picnic! We explore the magical world of bears through stories such as Goldilocks and The Three Bears, Whatever Next and We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
