Dosbarth 5

Welcome to Dosbarth 5!


Spring term 2 -  

Thank you for the great response to the Home School Task this term.  I have included some photographs of the children's work. They are on display in the classroom. 

These are some of the fantastic images created by the children at home

The class are also taking part in Pbuzz lessons this term. Take a look at the children playing the Pbuzz.


Our topic for this term is about the Welsh National Park - Brecon Beacons. The children have carried out some research and have decided that they want to write about the impact of tourism on the Brecon Beacons, create/ design an animal that could survive the winter on the Brecon Beacons and write a new countryside code. 


This week the children of Dosbarth 5 met with Kath from the Noah's Ark Children's Charity. She came in to thank the children for raising £62 on their stall at the Christmas Fete and to present the class with a certificate. 


The home school task for the spring term: To create a landscape image of their local environment. This could include the local mountains, Caerphilly Castle or any local attraction that is important to your child.  They could sketch the scene, paint using watercolours or pastels, the children could even use charcoal.  I look forward to displaying the images after the February half term. 


PE is every Monday


Reading books and Homework will be given to the children on a Thursday and must be returned to school on the following Monday.


Once the reading books have been checked in class, the children are free to take them home should you wish to listen to them read through the week.
