Dosbarth Collen

We have reached the end of a very difficult term. Thank you to all the parents for your support and for all your hard work over this time, It's been lovely seeing some of you coming back into school. I have enjoyed speaking to you and receiving emails of all your lovely work. This week to end the term we will be doing fun summer activities. Hope you a have a lovely summer break and hopefully we will all be back together in September. 


Over the next few weeks some children will be coming into school and some will remain learning from home. We will not be able to give children reading books to take home however we would like you to continue reading with your child.  Oxford Owl is a brilliant resource that you can easily access from home.

You can access books by either age, levels or series. There are loads of fantastic books including Oxford Reading Tree and Read Write Inc books we use in school. Thank you parents for your continued support!

This week Oaklands Primary School is taking part in Cardiff City FC Foundation’s #BluebirdsFromHome Schools Festival. There will be daily tasks Monday through to Thursday broken down into three parts, one well-being lesson, one either in literacy or numeracy lesson and a physical activity challenge. Friday will be a fun day filled with physical activities as sadly we are all missing out on a Sports day this year. Cardiff City would  like to see your pictures share your experiences throughout the week by posting your child’s progress on social media tagging @CCFC_Foundation using the hashtag #BluebirdsFromHome. We would love to see all the family take part so don't forget to send us your pictures and have lots of fun!

Education at Home


Work packs have been made available for all children. I hope you find them beneficial. Can I just remind you of the following websites.

The children have been given usernames and passwords for their account on the active learn website. It is a great resource that helps them to revise and practice their maths skills that have been taught in class.

The aim is that they play different Maths games and earn themselves rewards. The games will be differentiated and set at your child's level. Could you please encourage your child to play these games on a regular basis.

All children have been given passwords and usernames for this website. It allows all children to access a variety of fiction and non-fiction books to read. 


If you'd like to access links to enhance your child's learning at home you can use free Twinkl resources that are available to all parents. You simply have to create an account and use the code which is CVDTWINKLHELPS.


All children have also been provided with their HWB password and username which they can log onto to access a whole variety of work eg J2E, Microsoft word, powerpoint, EXCEL etc.


Don't forget you can access a wealth of resources on BBC Bitesize KS2, BBC Primary, Topmarks, Brain Pop etc There are lots of very good websites available.



Please stay safe and look after yourselves

See you soon
