St Aloysius Catholic Primary School Together with Jesus, we Love, Learn and Believe


Welcome to Cardiff Class.

We are Year 1 and Year 2.

Our teacher is Mrs Phillips and Mrs Gilbert is our teaching assistant.

PE is on Thursday and your child should wear a PE kit for school that day. Please tie a double knot if your child wears laced trainers.


Snack money is £2 per half term and should be sent in an envelope with your child's name written on.





Smiley Awards.

We can earn smiley awards for many things in school and love to hear the ping when Miss adds them to our chart! Here are some of the things we can get them for:

Up to 10 smilies for reading at home and bringing our book back.

Up to 5 for home learning (this includes 2 for spellings)

1 if we get Star of the Day

Extra smilies can be given for good listening, creative thinking, excellent manners, helping others, working hard and for being the best class in assembly! 

The awards are 150 = bronze, 300 = silver, 450 = gold and 600 = platinum and 750 = diamond. We visit Miss Wrigley for each award. 



Your child should read their phonics reading book 3 times (on different days). The first time helps them to read new words, the second helps to become familar with the story and on their third read they can read it like a storyteller.

Please write in their reading record each time and tell Mrs Phillips and Mrs Gilbert if the book is finished. When it is finished we will change it for a new book. Your child can also choose their own story from our Key Stage 1 library. They may be unable to read this indpendently, so it is a great opportunity to read some lovely new stories together!


Cardiff After School Club = Drawing Club.

After school club is on a Wednesday after school from 3:05pm - 4:05pm.

I am Mrs Phillips and I have worked at St Aloysius for nearly 17 years.  I love working here and have worked in every year group from Year 1 to Year 6! Maths and Art are my favourite subjects and I can't wait to get creative in both subjects this year. I love painting and drawing and I hope to do this more this year as it is a relaxing way to spend a few hours.
