Hi everyone in Reception!

Hi boys and girls of Reception!

I really hope you are well and trying your best with your routines and learning.

I have heard that you have been doing fantastic work as part of your distance learning and that makes me very proud of you 😊

From now on if you are in Victoria Park will you please start sending me your work, I cannot wait to see it. Equally, if you are in Thompson Park and you wanted to send me something I would love to see it too.



Can you see me outside by the sea?

I love being outdoors by the water, it makes me very happy.

As a way of saying hello to each other I wondered if you would like to send me a picture of you doing something you enjoy, for example, building using lego, playing outside, reading a book, drawing, writing etc

It can be ANYTHING you like but just say hello to me. If you can’t send a picture that’s no problem just send me a ‘hello’ message.


My email address is

I really look forward to hearing from you!

Have a fabulous half term!

Lots of smiles,

Miss Sullivan 😊 😊 😊

A project for children and young people in Cardiff to share their experiences of COVID-19 through weekly diary entries, has been launched.

‘The ‘Diff Diaries' is providing children and young people the opportunity to document their activity, thoughts and feelings during the global pandemic by submitting video recordings, photo collages or written diary entries.

With schools closed, all events large and small across the globe cancelled and children and young people everywhere having to stay at home, entries may show how children and young people are spending their time, perhaps learning new skills, being home-schooled or even sharing tips for children of the future.

It would be lovely to see some of our children in this diary. Please see below for further details.


Hello everyone. 👋🏻👋🏻
Hope you're all well and smiling😃😃

The rain has arrived which means less time outside. ☔️☔️
Here is some work for you that you can do inside.

Don’t  forget your bugclub - email me if you’ve lost your password.  

Have fun and stay safe🌈🌈

Happy Easter from all the staff at Lansdowne xx

please watch this video we made for you








I just wanted to wish you all a lovely Easter break. It’s been a strange fortnight without you all but I’ve had lots of lovely photos to show me what you’ve been up to. It’s the Easter holidays now so it’s time for you all to have a rest. I have found some Easter craft ideas if you like being creative and there are some football activities from Cardiff City.

        🐰🐰 Happy Easter 🐰🐰
👍🏻☀️ Stay safe👍🏻☀️


🌈🌈🌈🌈How to grow a rainbow🌈🌈🌈🌈

I remember as a child, one of my favourite birthday presents was felt pens and paper. My mum , who loves science, used to show me how to grow a rainbow with my new felt pens. Since rainbows are a theme at the moment, I thought I’d show you so you can make your own. All you really need is felt pens, water and paper. Follow the instructions on this video and you can grow your own rainbow just like this.                         🌈🌈 Have fun and send me some photos 🌈🌈



Please see week 2 for new activities.


Mr Redding in year 3 has also set you a challenge.

Look for the toilet roll challenge on this page


🌈 Good Morning 🌈


I hope your are all well and enjoying the sunshine. Please keep stay safe and happy. 

Here is a suggestion for the weekend. If you haven’t already, paint, draw or colour a rainbow and put it in your front window for other children to count on their daily walks. 

Ask your parents to photograph it and send it via Twitter to the People’s Collection Wales. Your rainbow will then be remembered in many years to come. 


Keep the photographs coming.

I will post more work on Monday.👋🏻
