This term we will be looking at the concept of relationships. We will begin by exploring relationships within our own lives, who’s important to us, stranger danger and friendship. We will then be looking at other types of relationships we have, such as with food, music and technology. We are hoping to continue this concept to begin exploring relationships older people may have with music, food and experiences from the past, delving into dementia, the war and with the end goal of putting on a concert for the older generation  based on their favourite types of music and even including food they may have enjoyed in the past.

During this topic we will be investigating evacuees of WW2, looking at how they felt, why it happened and how that would affect their relationships. We will be visiting the Pontypridd Dig for Victory Garden and Word War 2 museum to really immerse ourselves in this time

Help your child prepare for this topic…

Discuss the importance of safe relationships and identify the different types of relationships you may have. Ask older relatives to share their stories of the past, in particular the foods they would eat and music they would listen to.

Read Write Inc.

This academic year we have begun using a new language scheme called Read Write Inc. This involves daily practice looking at sounds, reading, spelling and writing. Pupils will be assessed frequently to ensure they are in the correct group and working at the correct level for them.

Parents meeting will be arranged throughout the year to give you the opportunity to find out more about Read Write Inc and also ask any questions you may have. However in the meantime. more information on Read Write Inc can be found on the link below.


As a school we are placing a large focus on pupil wellbeing. One way we are addressing this is through the use of the Zones of Regulation. Each morning we have a class check in where all pupils are asked how they are feeling (often in Welsh) and have the opportunity to share how they are feeling and explain why if they feel comfortable to. This has been a great success in the class and pupils seem to really enjoy the session. It is also a great way for us to explore emotional awareness and regulation as well have an idea of how each pupil is feeling that day. This way we can identify if a pupil requires extra support, someone to talk to and also allows us to share with pupils their excitement and happiness.

Useful links and resources!
