This term we will be learning about 'How does your garden grow?' which is a topic that will allow the children to explore different plants . We hope this topic helps children appreciate the environment and learn to look after it.

As you are aware, here at Cardiff Muslim Primary School we are very committed to using a cross-curricular approach to teaching. In shaa Allah, as a result your child will experience aspects of their current topic within various areas of learning (literacy, creative development, knowledge and understanding of the world, maths, creative development and P.E). We feel this makes learning fun and relevant for the children, encouraging them to develop their inquisitive nature and love of learning.
