Blended Learning

Google Classroom will be used to set home learning tasks each week. They will be set on a Monday and will need to be completed by the following Monday. The tasks will be based on what the children are learning in school whilst being fun, engaging and beneficial.


How to complete a Google Classroom task:

  • The children log into Google classroom using their Hwb email and Hwb password and click on their classroom (it will say either 4Park or 4Roath). 
  • The tasks will be under the 'classwork' section. 
  • Please upload the children's work (this could be in the form of an uploaded file or an uploaded photograph of the work) by using the 'hand in' section of the assignment.




Weekly spellings will be tested every Monday. Children can learn their spellings at home as well as having the opportunity to practice their spellings in school during guided group reading sessions. 


If they score full marks for 3 weeks in a row then they will be moved onto more challenging spellings.

Rights Respecting School


We are officially a Rights Respecting School!

We hope that you join us on this journey as we explore the rights of the child and put them into practice both in school and beyond. 

Below is some information regarding what Rights Respecting School is: 


The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.

Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. Our Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.

Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as our guide, we are working with more UK schools than almost any other organisation. Over 1.6 million children in the UK go to a Rights Respecting School and nearly 5,000 schools up and down the country are working through the Award. Schools work with us on a journey to become fully Rights Respecting.
