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. 


Summer term 2- Allah's Amazing Animals

We have come to the end of our final summer term in reception class, SubhanAllah!


‘Allah’s Amazing Animals‘ is our new topic where we’ll be roaming through our new learning experiences. We have planned many exciting activities enhanced and focused to extend our curiosity and explore Allah’s creation in the animal kingdom, big and small. We’ll be learning animal stories from the Quran such as Nuh A.S and Younas A.S, and many nonfiction stories too such as, ‘Handa’s Surprise’, ‘Dear Zoo’ and ‘The Grouchy Ladybug’ to help us regulate our feelings and build emotional intelligence. Our Veterinary role play will allow us to understand kindness to animals and the importance of looking after Allah’s creation. 


In maths we'll compose and decompose 2D and 3D shapes. Look at repeating and sequencing patterns and create maps and plans from story situations whilst discussing positional language and asking open ended questions. We'll also consolidate previous learning.


Creative art will include, symmetrical patterns, silhouettes, and animal masks. We will also prepare for our end of year performance which we are really excited about!

Our exploration will continue indoors our outdoors in literacy, maths, water area and 
investigation with various 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.
