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 Dhuhar salaat in congregation on a daily basis, in sha Allah.


IQRA! Read, read, read is our motto in spring term one! We'll explore various fairy tales and fiction books through our new topic 'Fantasy World'. We'll look at rhythm and rhymes and try to string some rhyming words together.  Fi fo fo fum... We'll venture into the land of amazing alliteration and create our very own too. Baking gingerbread men will be heaps of fun inline with our T4W story 'The Gingerbread Man', we'll try and eat them before they run away! Our role play area will convert into a bakery with numerous treats to bake and sell. We'll learn to count in 2s and 10s and understand how to add and subtract using our fantastic 'Ten Frames' tool. Cinderella's story will allow us to look at the passing of time and use the concept of time in terms of our daily activities and look at how long tasks take. We'll be observing patterns around us and create sequencing patterns to develop our mathematical skills such as patterns in numbers. 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.
