Year 1/2 - Mrs Williams

Croeso i Blwydden 1/2!


We have a warm, safe and welcoming classroom where the children are encouraged to achieve and succeed in their learning whilst developing a love for being creative and most of all kind, happy and healthy.



Teacher- Mrs Williams

A bit about me... I have worked at Crindau for 9 years and this is my second year teaching in year 1/2 and I'm extremely excited. I have a passion for reading, writing, drama and dancing and hope to share this with the children. I live with my husband and 2 little boys, Zac who is nearly 8 and Brody who has just turned 3. Zac  is very sporty and loves playing rugby and football and Brody is a cheeky toddler who loves Mr Tumble. Brody has Down Syndrome so we use Makaton sign language to communicate as his speech is delayed. I will be teaching the children some Makaton and BSL this year so I hope they come home and show you.  If I'm not in school, I'm either playing at home with my boys, spending time with my family and friends, or going for walks. I have an older sister who has a horse so I do like to horse ride when I can as I've been riding and around horses since I was very little. We have a family caravan in Dorset so we frequently spend a weekend down there going to the beach and swimming in the sea. Even when it's freezing cold!

I am so excited to start the new academic year with you all and make some wonderful memories together. 


Teaching Assistant- Mrs Sims

A bit about me...

I am Mrs Sims, I have worked in Crindau Primary for since 2011. I previously worked in Rogerstone Primary.

My experience in education is primary around Foundation Phase. I love working with children in a school setting. I find it very rewarding. Year 1 and 2 are particular favourites of mine.


I have two children myself, Abbie who is 24 years old and a Neonatal Intensive Care Ward Sister and Libby who is in her last year of Physiotherapy in Manchester.  Both my children make me incredibly proud.  They both enjoy playing Hockey and I have supported them with this and find that its now a love of mine.

How you can help your child at home



Use maths in everyday situations such as when shopping, baking, counting objects when out for a walk. Talk about days of the week, months of the year and the time. 


Practice the following skills:

  • Counting in 2s 5s and 10s
  • Number bonds to 10 and 100
  • Doubling and halving
  • Adding and taking away small numbers
  • Playing board games



Read, read and read! Read as much as you can and help the children sound out their phonics. Use the spellings and phonics resources on here to practice and learn the sounds that the letters make. Focus on writing senetcnes with finger spaces and a capital letter at the geinning and at the end.


Most of all....make learning fun! Talk about what they have done at school, play games and go for family walks. Talk about what they can see and feel to develop their vocabulary.
