Dosbarth 2

A very warm welcome to Dosbarth 2, I hope you all had a lovely summer. We had a great start to the new school year with the children settling into their class very quickly!


In Dosbarth 2, I teach the class on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Hodges on a Thursday and Friday. Our Learning Support Assistants (LSA's) are Mrs Davies and Mrs Draper.


This half term our topic is 'All About Me!' Our text focus for this will be firstly 'Kipper's Birthday' and then moving on to 'The Three Little Pigs'. Through the text 'Kipper's Birthday' we will be focussing on how old we are, relating this to how the children have changed from when they were babies and we will be planning and holding a real birthday party. Through 'The Three Little Pigs' we will be looking at houses, homes, families and the community.


We began our topic on our transition day last term, by asking the children what the topic 'All About Me' means to them, and what sorts of activities we could do. Have a look at the termly overview below to see some of their ideas.



Don't forget you can keep up to date with what we get up to by using our class Seesaw page. Lots of parents  signed up to this last year and it was a real success. I will give further details of this in the 'Meet the Teacher' session on Monday 9th September.



Just a reminder...

  • All children need PE kit (shorts and t'shirt) and wellies in school
  • Fruit - £1 every Monday
  • Homework and reading books will be sent home every Thursday, to be returned every Monday. It is vital that ALL CHILDREN complete their homework every week as it will be related to our class work.
  • Children will bring  either weekly letters and sounds to learn or spellings to practice, depending on which Letters & Sounds group they are in. These will be tested every Monday. (This will start in a few weeks time.)


Many thanks
