Assalamu'alaikum warakhmatullahi wabarakatahu,

Welcome to our reception class here at Cardiff Muslim Primary School.

We aim to provide a wonderful learning environment for the children in the Foundation Phase, that is full of care, fun and excitement! We have many enjoyable activities, learning experiences and learn through a variety of exciting topics in reception class. We’ll be learning and memorising essential prophetic duaa’s and will be praying Dhuhr salaat in congregation on a daily basis, in sha Allah. 


Autumn 2 Dinosaurs and Toys

Our roarsome topic in autumn term 2 is 'Dinosaurs & Toys'. We'll be learning through the story of 'Harry and his bucket full of dinosaurs' and creating our very own using our wonderful imagination. Our palaeontologist will be exploring and excavating fossils and dinosaur bones in the investigation area, how exciting! Our first official trip will be to the National Museum Cardiff where we’ll explore the various dinosaurs and fossils that are on display.  


We'll be working with ‘Woody’ from the 'Toy Story' in his Toy Repair Workshop looking after our new and old toys and understand the importance of caring for ours and others belongings. After reading the Old Bear story we'll recreate our version and have a show in our very own theatre (role play). We'll be writing and sending invites to our teddies at home to our 'teddy bears picnic' in school. In our Toy Shop we'll be learning to buy and sell toys using coins. T4W will allow us to roam through the different settings in our new story of 'We're going on a bear hunt'.


We’ll be exploring our outdoor, literacy, maths and investigation areas with a variety of activities to keep us busy with independent and enhanced learning. We have lots to discover and learn… Please login to Class Dojo for further information.
